Colegio de Sebastian (CDS), being a young academic and business entity, is in the process of developing its operations to serve its clients' satisfaction. This means that it must adapt itself to changes and improvements to survive the tough competition of private institutions. Effective communication in any business is a vital consideration that an owner must prioritize. Most growing businesses today are inclined to the use of technology to enhance the effectivity of their communication, and this entails the structuring of their computer network. In line with this, an assessment of the current network infrastructure was done at CDS to determine the need for new network topology. Through conducted surveys, CDS' network infrastructure was found out to have problems in terms of its topology that stems out to some issues like connectivity intermittence. To be able to provide a solution to such problem, a VLAN –based topology was proposed that includes topology that aims to achieve the four characteristics of good network architecture which are fault tolerance, scalability, quality of service and security. This research effort is to emphasize that properly planning an institution's network infrastructure is essential to serve its purpose optimally.
