What We Offer

  • OLPS Philosophy

    Our Lady of Peace School is a School that commits itself to Catholic education as an expression

    of the mission entrusted by Jesus Christ to the Church He founded.  OLPS aligns its objectives to the education mission of the church, to prepare its members to proclaim the Good News and to translate this proclamation into action.

    The educational mission of the church is an integral ministry embracing three interlocking

    dimensions:  first, the proclamation of the Word of God; second, fellowship in the life of the Holy Spirit; and third, service to the Christian community and the rest of the human community with a preferential option for the poor.  (Doc. In Education, Manila, 1979)

    Education involves the integration of the individual’s thinking, values, emotions, outlook, habits

    and experiences so that this becomes apparent in the individual’s behavior and life style.

    The formation of the human person is first and fundamentally an orientation to his ultimate

    destiny and simultaneously to the good of those societies of which he is a responsible member. (Gravissimum Educationis, Vatican II)

    As a Filipino School, we strive to promote genuine nationalism, to build a Christian community,

    to respect human dignity to integrate kingdom values - truth, freedom, love, justice and peace, in the total formation of Filipino men and women for the development of the Philippine society.

  • General Goals of OLPS Education

    Anchored in the OLPS Vision, Mission and Philosophy, the institution aims to form a true OLPSian individual who is…

    CHRISTIAN who has adequate understanding and knowledge of the teachings of Christ and who shares in the salvific mission through the use of his potentials.

    PERSON who believes in the dignity of self and others, who strives to discover and develop his talents to the full for the service of God and man.

    SELF-DIRECTED FILIPINO who is proud of his national identity and culture; who is

    committed to human development for Christian community and nation building, and who participates actively in rendering service to others especially the most deprived in the community.

    HUMAN BEING whose spiritual, academic, moral and cultural values acquired in his adolescent years are integrated and used to fulfill his responsibility in the home and community.

    MAN, WOMAN, academically prepared, professionally competent, disciplined, imbued with moral and spiritual strength, with a value system that enables him to make responsible decisions at work, at leisure, thereby contributing to the spiritual, moral, social, cultural development of his family, his profession and community.

  • Five C’s of St. Paul

    CHRIST is the center and core of OLPSian life.  Christ reveals the Father to us and leads us back to the Father in the Spirit within the Church.  He is the Lord (Col.1:15) who reconciled us with the Father (Gal. 4:6; Eph. 1:5), the image we want to become (Phil. 2:8-9), the prize we run for (Phil. 3:7).  With Paul, the OLPSian says, “CHRIST IS MY LIFE” (Phil. 1:21).  “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Gal. 2:20).  All that the OLPSian holds worthy and essential hinge upon five major values which characterize the heart and spirit of Paul, our Patron.  These may be referred to as the 5 C’s of Paul.

    CHRIST-CENTEREDNESS: The Christocentricity of Paul makes him cling to the Cross as a way to Glory.  This is Paschal Spirituality.  “I wish to know Christ and the power flowing from His resurrection; likewise, to know how to share in His sufferings by being formed into the pattern of His death” (Phil. 3:10).

    CHARITY: Christ’s love is the motivating force, the power that drives the OLPSian as embodied in the Paulinian Motto:  CARITAS CHRISTI URGET NOS!  Love is the highest gift that Paul exhorts us to seek (1 Cor 13); the law of the community which bears the name of Christ, the summary of all the commandments (Rom 13, 8; Phil. 2, 1-5).

    COMMISSION: The charity commissions us to proclaim Him as the Good News to all.  The OLPSian is an ambassador for Christ (2 Cor 5:20), servants and stewards of the mysteries of God (1 Cor 4:1; 2 Cor 4,5).

    COMMUNITY: The OLPSian contributes to the building of the body of Christ which is the Church, the community of all who had been justified in Christ.  All of us, in union with Christ, form one body, and as parts of it, we belong to each other (Rom 12, 6).

    CHARISM: The OLPSian recognizes and respects the gifts of people, realizing that each gift is for a different purpose but all for the building of communities of faith, hope and love (1 Cor 12, 13).
