Our Mission & Objectives

In collaboration with the church, Marywood Parents and through God the source of all being, we aim at developing women of

faith and integrity, of deep morals and religious principles through:

  • Providing our students the best in holistic education that will equip them for the highly competitive and technological world.
  • Developing in them Christian attitudes with authentic cultural and aesthetic values.
  • Fostering in them a spirit of truth and honest questioning, an interest in and a love of learning that will last through their lives.
  • Inculcating in them a family spirit of love and unity transcending all ethnic, economic,religious and social divisions.



  • All people of whatever race, condition or age, in virtue of their dignity as human persons, have an unalienable right ¬†to education.
  • This education should be suitable to the particular destiny of the individuals, adopted to their ability, sex, and ¬†national cultural traditions.
  • At the same time, this education should pave the way to brotherly (sisterly) association with other peoples, so that genuine peace and unity on earth may be promoted.
  • True Education aims to give people a formation, which is directed towards their final end and simultaneously towards ¬†the good of those societies to which ¬† they belong and in which, as adults, they will have their share of duties to perform
  • As a consequence, with the help of advances in psychology and in the art and science of teaching, children and young people¬†should be helped to develop ¬† ¬† harmoniously their physical, moral and intellectual endowments.
  • Surmounting hardships with a gallant and steady heart, they should be helped to acquire gradually, and through constant¬†effort, a more mature sense of ¬† ¬† ¬† responsibility ¬†towards the proper development of their own lives, and towards pursuing ¬†authentic freedom.¬†
