The College provides students opportunity for growth and development, making them not only academically excellent, but also socially responsible, spiritually strong and culturally involved. SSC exposes students through various student service programs and activities that challenge their creative and cognitive skills. The administrative staff of the College oversees the academic and non-academic needs of students.

The Student Affairs Office oversees the student co­curricular and extra-curricular activities, the various student organizations and the college’s sports program. It is also tasked to ensure that proper guidelines for behavior and attitude within school premises be upheld at all times.

Student Affairs Office

admissions 2The Student Affairs Office is an academic support office that seeks to continue the holistic formation and development of each Scholastican by providing relevant, quality and high-impact programs and services that enhance Scholastican’s educational experiences and develop them into well-rounded individuals who are able to adapt to any milieu, are creative and resourceful, are socially responsible and responsive, are disciplined and with unquestioned integrity. Among its programs and services are: Student Formation and Development Program (SFDP) – is a comprehensive leadership formation program which caters to the student organization leaders, officers of the Student Council and the class representatives. Blue and White Affair – a culminating activity that aims to recognize outstanding student leaders, organizations and moderators during a particular school year. Student Orientation Program – a series of assemblies that aim to welcome Scholasticans to their second home via featured talks on the school mission-vision, trust and theme, academic and non­academic policies, programs and services, campus tours and events designed to build community and develop school spirit.

Student Activities

Student Organizations

 The College encourages the establishment of student organizations (viz., co-curricular, extra-curricular, interest, religious and student publications) to meet the needs and interests of the students. Students also come together to pursue common goals when their Department celebrates its academic week with exhibits, symposia, fora and other activities. The Dean of Student Affairs (DSA), together with the Associate DSA, the faculty moderators and the trainers/coaches supervise all student organizations and extra­curricular activities. The DSA, likewise, serves as the administration’s liaison to the Student Council.

SSC provides students the opportunity to get involved in in-campus and out-of­campus activities organized by schools and associations affiliated with SSC.

The Student Council is a democratically constituted government of College students. It exists primarily to serve the needs of students and to promote and protect their rights and welfare. As the central, unifying and motivating force of the students, it provides them the venue to ventilate their concerns and opinions. The President of the Student Council occupies one seat in the SSC Board of Trustees.

The College is also affiliated with several sports organizations, such as the WNCAA and the WCSA.

Student Discipline

Standards of Conduct

SSC is a sectarian school steeped in Benedictine, Catholic tradition. It therefore assumes that students voluntarily enrol in the school and are therefore willing to abide by the moral and educational values the Benedictine tradition espouses. In the spirit of academic freedom, however, the College also respects the rights of students who hold values different from what it believes in provided said students do not discredit the school or manifest behaviors which are against the best interests of the College. Likewise, the College reserves the right to dismiss, suspend, or expel, at any time, a student who acts and/or behaves contrary to its avowed principles and who habitually disobey its rules and regulations.

Each student of the College is expected to act in accordance with the policies, rules and regulations set by the school. Benedictine education believes in allowing the Scholastican to assume personal responsibility for her/his actions, observe discipline and self-control and adhere to the universal values of morality and integrity.

 

Student Discipline

When a student does not live up to the proper behavior and decorum required of Scholasticans and fails to abide by the College’s academic and social regulations, or acts in a manner that brings discredit to it, the said student is subject to disciplinary action. Disciplinary action may mean suspension or dismissal from the College. Further, the school’s authority to discipline students emanates from its responsibility to develop and maintain a healthy school environment conducive to the protection and promotion of academic freedom and teaching-learning process.
