Mission and Vision


San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Manila as an institution of learning, provides quality Catholic Christian education that ensures the promotion of culture, the welfare of society and the total development of man geared towards the attainment of eternal salvation.

As an Augustinian Recollect Institution, our philosophy of education is based on the Augustinian belief that the person should be developed integrally. Our goal is to make knowledge as structure of wisdom, and this search for knowledge(SCIENTIA)should lead us to the exercise of love(CARITAS).


We want San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Manila to be a leading dynamic Catholic Christian educational institution whose graduates are intellectually and globally competitive individuals imbued with Augustinian Recollect values.


We commit to provide quality Catholic Christian education for the holistic formation of every person to become socially responsible, morally upright, academically and technologically competent leaders and professionals ready to meet the needs and demands of the local and global communities.
