With the theme of “Gold,” BSA aims to turn “HIGHLIGHTS” into an annual celebration of scholars’ good fortune and how they continuously bring light to the Benildean community.

Since its establishment, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) has become reputable for its eagerness to provide quality education to students from all walks of life. From financial aid, scholarships for sports, academics, arts, journalism, and other services to the school, the College offers a wide variety of scholarship opportunities to its students.
