Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos included in her curriculum vitae (CV) that she graduated as the “class valedictorian” from the California boarding school, Santa Catalina School. However, KAMI learned that this claim has been debunked by Rappler.

Aside from graduating as the valedictorian, Marcos claimed that she had an advanced placement in English, history, and arts.

The CV was uploaded on the website of the House of Representatives. However, they already removed it from the site.

In a report by Rappler, Santa Catalina School’s assistant head of school John Aimé said that they do not hold any record that can show Marcos actually graduated from that school.

“While the student you inquired about attended our school for a brief period in the fall of 1972, she is not a graduate,” Aimé said.

However, the school official did not give further information on why Marcos left the school because they are not allowed to discuss it without the student’s permission.

KAMI reported before that the claim of Marcos that she graduated from the Princeton University and University of the Philippines College of Law has been debunked as well.

Marcos insisted that she graduated from both of the prestigious universities as far as she knew. She also provided photos which claimed that she attended her graduation ceremony in UP.
