At the end of the 19th century many founding fathers 

of our nation gave up their lives for our freedom.

130 years later, we take their sacrifices seriously and

continue to work for the Vision they were willing to die for.

"Ang aking adhika sapul magkaisip
ng kasalukuyang bata pang maliit,
ay ang tanghaling ka at minsan masilip
sa dagat Silangan hiyas na marikit.

"Mata mong marikit sana’y lumigaya
Walang bakas luha’t puspos na ng sigla,
Tingala ang noo, balisa’y wala na
Walang bahid poot wala nang pangamba."


Dr. José Rizal

"My dreams when already a youth

full of vigor to attain,
Were to see you,

Gem of the Sea of the Orient,

"Your dark eyes dry, smooth brow

held to a high plane,
Without frown, without wrinkles and of shame without stain."

Dr. José Rizal

We believe this Vision of our future is our Destiny.

Not by providence, but by doing what it takes, living and working by our highest values and standards of excellence.
