Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in Announcements


The University of the Philippines Mindanao (UPMin) and the Davao City National High School (DCNHS) signed a memorandum of agreement on May 22, 2024, to implement the sports track program at the said high school. UPMin Chancellor Lyre Anni E. Murao and DCNHS Principal Evelyn E. Magno signed the agreement as heads of their respective schools, while UPMin College of Humanities and Social Science dean, Prof. Jhoanna Lynn Cruz, Department of Human Kinetics (DHK) chairperson, Assistant Professor Jezreel Abarca, and DCNHS’s Maja Michele Alcain served as witnesses to the agreement.


The agreement states that “the parties agree to collaborate in implementing the Sports Track Program, which aims to enhance high school students’ knowledge, skills, and interest in sports. The program will provide opportunities for hands-on learning experiences, mentorship, and engagement in sports-related activities and projects.” The agreement is UPMin's third with a public high school. The first two were with Calinan and the AL Navarro public high schools located in divergent Davao City districts, with the DCNHS in the city center. 



Young athletes and dancers aspiring for higher education may seek admission to the UPMin Associate of Arts in Sports Studies (AASS), a two-year degree program, and the Bachelor of Sports Science (BSS). AASS applicants are not required to take the UP College Admission Test but must demonstrate proficiency in sports, dance, or recreational activities and have a good high school academic record.

Satisfactory performance in the AASS program can qualify a student to proceed to BSS as a third-year student. Professionals who need a formal sports, dance, recreational, and physical movement education may take the two-year Diploma in Exercise and Sports Science or the MS in Human Movement Science.
