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.



We are the Jesuit, Catholic, Chinese-Filipino Basic Education Institution in Western Visayas.  We are a community committed to forming leaders who pursue excellence that is ignited by  love and service.


As a Catholic School, we form a community that is faithful to the teachings of Christ, men and women who seek union with the Creator through love and service of neighbor.

As a Jesuit School, we nurture each person’s God-given potentials so that he acts with generosity and desires to always do more (magis) for the greater glory of God.

As a Chinese-Filipino School, we form a community that has a genuine love for the Filipino nation and its cultural heritage. Rooted and inspired by the history of our mission for the Chinese-Filipinos in Iloilo, we likewise seek to develop a community that understands and appreciates the Chinese-Filipino heritage thereby becoming an instrument of sincere dialogue with other cultures.
