Message from the President

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,


As you may already know by now, Malacañang has suspended work in all government offices as well as classes in all public schools tomorrow, September 21, 2017.

We at Ateneo de Iloilo - Santa Maria Catholic School shall continue with our classes tomorrow as usual.  We shall also use this day as an opportunity to continue to remember and learn the atrocities of Martial Law perpetuated by the Marcos Regime so that we may know how to prevent them from happening again.  The Social Studies Programs of our GS, JHS and SHS units have prepared various fora for this purpose. I encourage everyone to join and participate in these activities.  

As a Jesuit and Catholic School, let us use this day as an opportunity in exercising our sacred duty and mission to form our students to uphold justice as an integral dimension  and concrete expression of our Christian faith. 

In omnibus amare et servire,


Fr. Joseph Y. Haw, S.J.


Ateneo de Iloilo submits papers for PAASCU re-accreditation

For the third time in a row, Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS will be having a Level II Re-accreditation from the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU). The necessary documents, including appendices, were already sent to the PAASCU office in Manila last October 6 signaling the finality of the pentennial accreditation.

Set November 24-25, the third Level II re-visit is part of the school’s way of benchmarking with universally accepted standards in school management and operations. This includes areas such as curriculum and instruction, library and audio-visual center, laboratories, student services, physical plant, administration, philosophy and objectives, school and community.


PAASCU, as a private, voluntary, non-profit, and non-stock accrediting body, is the one that stamps private schools with a quality standard attained with regard to school-related programs. The standards here reflect a realistic appraisal of the school’s resources and their efficient utilization to help the institution achieve its goals. It uses tested survey forms that identify principles and practices which are found in excellent institutions. The highlight of the survey is the actual visit of a team of experts to the school for thorough observation, interview, and scrutiny. This process is intended to guide schools like Ateneo as it strives for excellence and for accreditors as they assess institutional achievement.

Ateneo de Iloilo, to note, earned its PAASCU Level 1 accreditation last 2000. It then got its Level 2 accreditation in 2005, followed by a re-accreditation in 2010. (Herman Lagon)
