THE PHILIPPINE Science High School recently broke ground for the 4.6-hectare Infinitum Learning Resource Center in New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac.

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority said the center will be operational by 2026 and will serve as a campus for PSHS senior high school students and a resource center for teachers and professionals.

It will house a multi-purpose academic building with 24 classrooms, case rooms, library, faculty room and a dining hall.

It will also have a research center for chemistry, physics, environmental science and biology; a technology hub for computer science, mathematics and humanities; an innovation center; a training center; dormitories; administration building and a summer camp area.

PSHS Central Luzon Campus Director Theresa Anne Diaz said the Infinitum’s state-of-the-art facilities, advanced laboratories and immersive academic spaces is part of their modernization efforts “toward the continuous development of students as well as teaching and non-teaching employees.”

“I’d like to thank the BCDA for making the PSHS a part of this beautiful project of sustainable communities. When we were beginning, nakita ko po ‘yung grand project for New Clark City and it is very, very beautiful,” Diaz said.

BCDA President and CEO Aileen Zosa said that the rise of the PSHS’s center will be an important driver of the knowledge-based industries that will locate in New Clark City.

“At a time when Central and Northern Luzon are primed for growth, the rise of the state-of-the-art Infinitum in New Clark City will enable us to provide more opportunities for quality education to the next generation of leaders here,” she stressed.

“This way, we can ensure that, in decades to come, the next generation can sustain – or even surpass – the growth we are helping to build here,” she added.
