Vision - Mission
A. Mission Statement of the Abbey of Our Lady of Monteserrat

 

As a Benedictine monastery, the Abbey of Our Lady of Montserrat is committed to the task of witnessing to Christ’s presence in the world through prayer, work, and common life. The monastery aims to help in strengthening the spirit of prayer in the Church and to witness the value of community life. While its primary activity is prayer, it places itself at the service of the Church and the Philippine society by responding to the need for Christian education. The apostolate of a Benedictine monastery is an extension of its prayer and common life, and therefore partakes of the character of a praying community.

Committed to the Christian vision of man, inspired by the Benedictine ideals, adapting to the Filipino learner’s needs and situation, guided by the contemporary findings on learning processes and facilitating conditions, San Beda College Basic Education Department has evolved a philosophy of education which affirms:

1. that education is a life-long process of the “bringing forth”, the actualization of the limitless possibilities of the person;

2. that the school, in our age, is a phase in the process of a person’s growth, and is the formal facilitating factor in the child’s learning;

3. that communication is the process whereby a message becomes common to both the giver and the receiver of the communication;

4. that learning is the change effected in the life of a person due to exposure to an experience;

5. that teaching facilitates learning by putting together those conditions most conducive to learning;

6. that encounter, which is the meeting of persons in the context of respect and acceptance, is the necessary condition of learning.

As a Benedictine School and following fourteen centuries of Benedictine tradition, San Beda College Basic Education Department, administered by the monks of St. Benedict, offers what is authentically the monastic heritage.

  • Experience of the Gospel message of loving fellowship
  • Appreciation of the liturgy
  • Sensitive openness to the divine dimension of human life

Principal's Message

Greetings of Peace!

It is with immense joy that I welcome you all for Academic Year 2016-2017. We praise the Almighty God for bringing us together as one Bedan family in the Integrated Basic Education Department, San Beda College. I share with you the feelings of excitement, joy, and pride to put into life the Catholic Benedictine education as well as this year’s theme: “Integrity and Compassion”.

The new school year is full of surprises, challenges and opportunities. We push together our dream towards academic excellence and the integral Christian formation of the different sectors of the school community.

We set our gaze toward one direction to see the fulfillment of the school’s theme and major tasks this academic year 2016-2017.

1. “To bring to life integrity and compassion in all aspects of campus life;

2. To do things, consistently practice honesty, fairness and charity. Assist the least, the lost among us, without expecting anything in return; and

3. To integrate extensively the Benedictine core values in all school endeavors.”

Furthermore, we continue the implementation of K to 12 Program in all levels. We pursue to produce Bedan graduates who are holistically developed, equipped with the 21st Century skills and prepared for employment and or for higher education.

This academic year 2016-2017, we are all set to implement the Senior High School (SHS) in Grade 11 both in Manila and Rizal

We hope and pray for the realization of these tasks as we strive to become fully human, wholly Christian, truly Filipino, and globally competitive through the well integrated curricular and co-curricular programs and activities.

We stretch forth our arms to the greater fold of the IBED. I ask therefore everyone to be a role model, a source of inspiration, and a driving force so that our common goal will be attained.

To the students who were with us last year, welcome back to your second home. To the new students, thank you for choosing the Integrated Basic Education Department, as your second home.

Once again, my best wishes to everyone as we usher in the first full school year of the “Year of Mercy and Compassion”.

That in all things, God may be glorified.
