Background

The Katipunan Philippines Cultural Academy (KAPHILCA) was inspired by the idea that young Filipinos overseas must never become alienated from their native land; they must know about their Filipino identity and culture, and must be given the best opportunity to learn about the Philippines and its people.

The KAPHILCA was established in 1997 to provide affordable formal education to dependents of overseas Filipino workers in Greece. It was borne of a vision shared by the Philippine Embassy in Athens, the Filipino community in Greece, and the Commission on Filipinos Overseas, with a start-up contribution from the President’s Social Fund and the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office.

The school was accredited by the Department of Education of the Philippines on 26 October 1999. Since the school follows the curriculum prescribed by the DepEd, it enables students to be readily integrated into the Philippine school system on their return to the country, and to cultivate in them their Filipino identity and character.
