The College Unit commits itself to providing an atmosphere conducive to learning characterized by academic freedom, intellectual and artistic stimulation and open and congenial interpersonal relationships. In keeping with this commitment, the College requires a strong liberal arts orientation in all its academic programs. During their first two (2) years at St. Scholastica’s, students receive a solid foundation in the arts, humanities, natural and social sciences. In both its general education courses and courses in the students’ major field of concentration, students are exposed to innovative teaching strategies characterized by their student-centeredness and interdisciplinarity. These processes are sustained by qualified and dedicated administrators, faculty members and school personnel in adequate, well-maintained and updated facilities.
Opportunities for students, faculty and staff development are created to promote a spiritual, physical, psychological and professional growth by tapping not only local but also international resources.
In keeping with its reputation as a school with high standards, St. Scholastica’s College continues to preserve its prestigious image as evidenced by its receiving the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities’ (PAASCU) re-accreditation status.SSC was first accredited in 1957, the College Unit has since been re-accredited six (6) times (1960, 1967, 1974, 1981, 1987, 1994, and 2008 and 2012). On 2001, it was granted full autonomy status by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
We do this in the context of a socially-oriented school:
• whose administration, faculty and students are conversant with the current economic, political, socio-cultural and ecological conditions of the Philippines;
• where the academic community is actively involved in working with the marginalized of society towards self-reliance and total human liberation;
• where curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities foster the development of social awareness and involvement of the different sectors of the community with chosen programs of action that promote genuine democracy and nationalism;
• whose systems of evaluation recognize the uniqueness of every person, develop critical thinking, and cultivate social responsibility;
• where policies of employment and interrelationships reflect social values, especially justice, equity and respect for human dignity; and
• where the various sectors participate in making the decisions and policies which affect them.
