Due to the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, the De La Salle Medical Health Sciences Institute (DLSMHSI) implemented the Home-Based Alternative Learning Modalities (HBALM) program for learning to continue. Having so, this study aims to measure the Interpersonal Communication Skills of selected Grade 12 students in a HBALM program at DLSMHSI in terms of listening, conversing, reading, and composing messages/texts. An online survey questionnaire was utilized to determine the level of agreement of 213 respondents. Results found that the students have a satisfactory level of listening, with a mean of 3.82 (SD = 0.533); good level in conversing, having a mean of 4.31 (SD = 0.516); proficient in reading, with an overall mean of 4.28 (SD= 0.545); and proficient in composing messages/texts, with a mean of 4.38 (SD = 0.541). The results showed that the implementation of the HBALM program has a positive impact on Grade 12 students' Interpersonal Communication skills, with their listening skills being the most affected and their ability to compose texts/messages being the least. Researchers recommend conducting the study with an actual test instead of surveys, securing more respondents early, and conducting the study in a physical setup.
