[DLS-CSB, June 3, 2024] – De La Salle Santiago Zobel School (DLSZ) has officially signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) to launch the Green Lane initiative, a collaborative effort designed to enhance the educational transition for students within the De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) network.

Through the Green Lane initiative, DLS-CSB waives the Benilde Entrance Exam (BEE) for SHS graduates of DLSP member schools, including DLSZ, who meet the required minimum High School GPA for both board and non-board programs.

A key feature of the Green Lane initiative is the institutional crediting of certain Senior High School (SHS) subjects to equivalent undergraduate institutional courses offered by DLS-CSB. Initially, SHS Religion-related subjects have been identified for equivalency with CSB’s. This crediting process not only frees up students’ time and academic requirements but also reduces financial burdens, allowing students to focus on other courses and accelerating their transition to the industry.

“We are committed to exploring additional courses for crediting in the future. This initiative marks the beginning of a deeper collaboration between our institutions. We look forward to discussing further opportunities for student and staff mobility, joint research, seminars, project development, and the exchange of scientific information and materials,” shared Br. Edmundo “Dodo” L. Fernandez FSC, DLS-CSB President.

The Green Lane initiative is a testament to DLSZ’s commitment to prioritize the needs of its learners even beyond their stay in the school. We are excited about the opportunities this partnership will bring to our DLSZ SHS graduates. 

Here, Change Begins.
