St. Joseph’s Academy, the home of the world-famous Bamboo Organ, is the oldest Catholic education institution in the Diocese of Parañaque.
It envisions itself to be the center for integral faith formation, academic excellence and servant – leadership for the members of the school community.
Inspired by St. Joseph, its patron, it seeks to develop socially responsible and just Christian achievers for God and Nation.
With the given vision, WE commit ourselves to:
Live up to the original intent of its founders as partner of evangelization and the promotion of BEC as a way of life. Develop the core competencies of its personnel and stakeholders and to provide a well-balanced and challenging curriculum in the pursuit of excellence. Mold its members to be agents of change who are actively involved in the social, moral and political issues affecting society and its environment. Promote the local culture and heritage.
I AM AN SJA
I AM A SIMPLE, JESUS - CENTERED, ACHIEVER, AVAILABLE TO SERVE.
RELIGION AS CORE OF THE CURRICULUM
In the Catholic school’s educational project there is no separation between time for learning and time for formation, between acquiring notions and growing in wisdom (The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium, no. 14).
Religious Education in its primal and fundamental sense refers to the dynamic and mutually enforcing process of experiencing, knowing and sharing the Christian Faith in the light of integral evangelization.
Religion as Core of the Curriculum serves as the underlying worldview or framework in achieving an authentic Catholic culture, especially when it is linked directly or indirectly, with the other courses of subjects, with the other disciplines and sciences of the school. What immediately comes to mind are the Gospel or Kingdom values that must permeate other secular courses without undermining the academic freedom that is deemed vital in pursuing the quest for human knowledge and truth.
Religion as Core of the Curriculum should enable the academic community—administrators, faculty, maintenance personnel and non-teaching staff, pupils, students, parents and alumni—to acquire a worldview that transcends their given time and space, a worldview that enables them to live out their Christian vocation in a secular society or for their unique contribution to the evangelization of their home and office, their social and political commitments/engagements.
In summary, Religion as Core of the Curriculum is constitutive. The nature of a Catholic school rests in its commitment to evangelize – to tell and retell the story of Jesus today inasmuch as it is normative. Meaning, all programs and activities are to be planned, implemented and evaluated in light of Religion.
