This research paper explores the implementation of OBE (Outcome-Based Education) in the context of disparate educational institutions, including the case of AGCA (Angeli Gilbert Christian Academy). This study uses a qualitative research method (in-depth interviews and thematic analysis), which examines how OBE complies with Spady’s five pillars (Paradigm, purposes, philosophy, principle, and outcome of significance) and its effect on the student learning outcomes. The study’s responses were gathered from teachers (15) and parents (15) through Zoom meetings, allowing for a deeper understanding of the OBE and its implementation in AGCA. This analysis highlights the crucial importance of OBE in the creation of student-centered learning approaches that are targeted to meet educational objectives, and that contribute to the formation of a favorable learning environment. The implementation of the OBE manual is proposed, and it will be tailored to fit the purpose and objectives of AGCA, which will guide the curriculum, instruction, and assessment alignment. In general, the study underscores that understanding and integrating OBE principles can help enhance education’s quality and relevance. OBE implementation of AGCA has been successful, gathering positive feedback from parents and educators. This research also indicates some adjustments to the AGCA structure, involving changes to the vision and mission statements as well as to the program with a focus on the OBE manual. Future research could consider integration effectiveness, longitudinal surveys of alumni, and comparative analogy of informing other educational reform strategies for students.
