The founders’ passion for excellence led them to continuously seek ways and means to upgrade the school’s educational programs and services.
Through the direction of one of the founders of SLR, Dr. Elizabeth Y. Manugue, then Director for Organizational Development at the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), the school underwent an Organizational Analysis on its tenth year in SY 2001-2002. The findings inspired the founders to move on in its quest for excellence. It applied for accreditation with the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) in SY 2002-2003.
After undergoing the Self- Survey Evaluation in SY 2004-2005, SLR was subjected to a Preliminary Survey on August 2-3, 2005. This led to the granting of Level I Status by the Federation of Accrediting Agencies of the Philippines (FAAP) upon recommendation of the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU).
