SOP History

The Special Opportunity Program (SOP) at EARIST has existed since 1945, originally known as the evening vocational program. When the K-12 program was introduced in the Philippines, the emphasis on skill-based education boosted the significance of programs like SOP. Unfortunately, the program had to pause for two years due to the pandemic but it has recently resumed recruiting in 2023
