Education Ministry

Augustinian education as fostered by the Province of Sto. Niño de Cebu aims to promote the development of the total person, forming the individual according to principles that are based on the Gospel, made explicit by the Church, and inspired by the teachings of St. Augustine, in the light of values that are fully human, and therefore, Christian. Among these values, foremost is Charity – the love of God and neighbor which nourishes in the person the search for Wisdom and Truth, the desire for Dialogue and Friendship, and the commitment to Communion, Solidarity, and Justice.

Persons educated in the Augustinian way freely responding to the demands of their new life in Christ with the intellectual and moral integrity expected of their state of maturity, are enabled to overcome individualism, and be competent in their field of specialization so as to work effectively for the good of the Church and society as a whole. It is thus that they become active participants in the building-up of the City of God, ever generous, dedicated and fully committed to their task.

Consequently, all six Augustinian schools administered by the Province of Sto. Nino de Cebu are viewed as academic centers of faith and communion, where the administration and personnel, teachers and students, with the support of alumni, parents and friends, are bound together by the spirit of fraternity as they realize a common mission and goal “with one mind and heart on the way to God.”

The Saint Thomas of Villanova Institute in Quezon City is also considered an education apostolate with a specific mission of inculcating Augustinian values to aspiring friars of the Order as they take up the Philosophy course.
