Education at Saint Francis of Assisi College has always been uniquely premised on the fundamental philosophy of the nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline.

In this holistic education, our students have been led to find their identity and purpose, calling forth an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning. Self-respect and self-esteem, relationships with others, social and emotional literacy, resiliency in times of difficulties and in facing challenges, and seeing the beauty of what is around were developed to ensure them to achieve long-term success. With the unbending support of parents and guardians, administrators, and teachers, and coupled with the bounteous materials and activities provided for them, this approach has connected their whole person to the community, to the natural world and to primary human values such as compassion, peace, faith and humility within the learning environment.

Congratulations, dear graduates. Keep on excelling with faith in God and in yourselves! Persevere in championing with humility! Surely, the pathway to success will be just a “walkaway”.
