About the Guidance Center

Vision & ObjectivesServicesProgramsActivities


In line with, and in addition to, the national educational objectives, the Divine Word College of Laoag seeks to educate the individual, who must be spiritually integrated, cultured and socially oriented, professionally competent and psychologically balanced. Given this wide range of institutional objectives, the College Guidance Center partakes in the formation of students to become a fully matured person.


In view of the aims and objectives of the college, the Guidance Center has been set up to render specific services to college students. Through these services, and with the help of the community, a person is helped to acquire a growing understanding of his potentials and limitations, and of his personal and social needs. This understanding will lead to the formation of proper attitudes, as well as to the development of emotional and social maturity.


  • To test, inform, and counsel the individual on his potentials, abilities, interests, personality, social and emotional needs so that he/she may know himself better and develop his potentials to a maximum degree.
  • To assist students in meeting their need to understand themselves in relation to the world in which they live.
  • To provide academic heads and faculty members data on matters involving student adjustment to academic work, and to other aspects of students’ life.
  • To collect occupations and vocational information needed by the student in making career decisions.


The DWCL College Guidance Center offers students opportunities for intellectual, spiritual, social, emotional and physical growth. They are for students to experience and integrate towards their total development and effective participation in society. Their openness and good will, however, are the keys to this growth.
