“Listen carefully my child, to my instructions, and attend to them with the ear of your heart. This is an advice from someone who loves you. Welcome it, and faithfully put it into practice.”
This office is mandated to enforce the policies and regulations of the academy pertaining to students’ behavior.
The school established this office to regulate students’ behavior inside and outside the campus to the extent that their conduct affects their formation as good persons.
It is the aim of this Benedictine school, through its Office of the Student Services and Formation (OSSF), to support the character formation of every student according to the values of a true Benedictine child whose behavior inside and outside the campus manifests a sign of hope for the future.
In line with this, the office, in support to what the academics offer, undertakes programs that seek to develop in students the following; love of God, man and all of creations, justice, critical thinking and responsibility especially in decision-making while keeping a good connection with God in prayers.
The CARE program, for example, aims to help the student;
Accept one’s strengths and weaknesses,
Reflect and reconnect oneself to others and God, and
Empower oneself for an ongoing conversion and growth.
The implementation of this program includes coordination with different school officials who can provide the help needed by a student peculiar to his case. Reflections, Lectio- Divina, counseling, heart-to-heart talks, and the like are among the activities that a student undergoes along with the sanction given. This shows that to promote the desired character formation, concern and discipline are both salient factors of the program. Hence, the list offenses and sanctions stated in the student handbook are meant to serve as guidelines of every student in a school established for the service of God. In the end, it is hoped that these “…will supply the discipline that is necessary for freedom (St. Benedict)”.
