The Royal College of Santa Potenciana was established in 1589 by Philip II - urging the Manila
bishop, Domingo de Salazar, OP and the Franciscans. In 1592, the school drew its charter, cited the main reason
for its foundation; the lack of educational opportunity for girls. In 1594, the school was opened to the public.
Capitn Luis de Vivanco donated the original site for the college. Although employing stone construction as
anticipation for strong earthquakes, the 1645 earthquake left the College of Santa Potenciana in a ruined state.
In the 17th century, the school was transferred to the corner of Calle Cabildo and Calle Santa Potenciana. By

the end of the 18th century, the Palacio del Gobernador was constructed, incorporating the ruins of College of
Santa Potenciana.[2]
Government offices were moved into the new
building of College of Santa Potenciana in 1866
due to the destruction of Palacio del Gobernador
by the 1863 earthquake. Due to that circumstance,
the enrollment rate in the College of Santa
Potenciana dropped - with the remaining student
boarders transfer to Colegio de Sta. Isabel. Later
on, these two institutions were merged; thus,
paved the way for the dissolution of the College
of Santa Potenciana.
The new building of College of Santa Potenciana
became the official governor-general's palace.
However, the incoming governor-general decided
to transfer to Malacaang Palace in San Miguel, Manila. The building was, then, turned over to the Segundo
Cabo, the second-in-command of the military after the governor-general. It housed the Subinspecciones de
Infantera, Caballera, Carabineros and the Guardia Civil. The building was destroyed by the 1880 earthquake.


The Colegio de San Ildefonso was
a college situated in Cebu City in the then-
Captaincy General of the Philippines. It is the first
educational institution established in Asia by the
Europeans. In Mexico City 1588, the Jesuits also
founded a college with the same name.[1] The Cebu
City college was established by Fr. Antonio
Sedeno, Fr. Pedro Chirino, and Antonio Pereira of
the Society of Jesusin 1595.[2] After the expulsion
of the Jesuits from Spanish territories in 1767, the
buildings and facilities were taken over first by
the Diocese of Cebu, then the Congregation of the
Mission, then later by the Society of the Divine
Word. The University of San Carlos makes the
claim of tracing its roots to San
Ildefonso.[2] However, this claim is disputed by
the Royal and Pontifical University of Santo
Tomas, and by several other historian.


Colegio de San Jos had its humble beginning in
1872. Reverend Father Ildefonso Moral, C.M.,
rector of the Jaro Archdiocesan Seminary, and Don

Recardo Mascuana signed the contract of its establishment on July 9, 1871.
On May 1, 1872 the Daughters of Charity opened a school to provide Christian education for girls. In 1877 they
decided to give up the school for lack of resources. Bishop Mariano Cuartero of Jaro realized the need of the
teaching and the catechetical services of the Sisters. He gave them full charge of the Escuela Municipal, a free
school for the poor, located at Sta. Isabel and Lopez Jaena Streets.
In 1881 another storey was added to the nuns' quarters to answer to the urgent request of the parents. A
dormitory for girls and a chapel were inaugurated by His Excellency Most Rev. Leandro Arrue, A.R., Bishop of
Jaro. In 1892 Reverend Father Domingo Viera, C.M. and Mother Superior Sor Juana Goita, D.C., conceived the
plan of constructing a college managed and owned by the Daughters of Charity. The Sisters were to continue
managing the Escuela Municipal. With the help of the higher Superiors and new loyal benefactors, the work
immediately started. The site was ideally located at East Lopez Street. Manuel Uytiepo aided the sisters in
finishing the building. In spite of the interruption of the Revolution of 1896, the new imposing Colegio de San
Jose was inaugurated on March 19, 1896.Along with the reconstruction of the building was the organization of
the administration, re-examination of the education objectives, and adoption of new methods to suit the needs of
the students. The curriculum included Reading, History, Writing, Arithmetic, Spanish Grammar, Practical Arts,
and Religious and Moral Training. The emphasis was Christian formation and Christian manners and right
conduct. On September 14, 1917, five of the Sisters from Colegio de San Jos started the Colegio del Sagrado
Corazon de Jesus in Iloilo City proper. In 1926, the college was allowed to grant high school diplomas. Later
on, it offered college courses like Music, Teacher Education, Secretarial and Commerce. Colegio de San Jose,
the oldest school for girls in Western Visayas, had a complete library, a school of music, plus complete courses
from pre-elementary to college.

The Colegio de Santa Isabel was founded on
October 24, 1632 with the primary purpose of
educating Spanish orphans in this most distant
Spanish colony, and is one of the oldest girl
schools in the world. In later years its doors
were opened to Spanish Filipina girls as well.
In 1733, by a royal decree the name of the
college was changed to Real Colegio de Santa
Isabel. The records of its establishment can be
found at the Archive of the Indies in Seville,
Spain. On July 22, 1862, fifteen Daughters of
Charity of St. Vincent de Paul arrived in the Philippines from Spain. Two years after, the Daughters of Charity
took over the administration of the Real Colegio de Santa Isabel. The College was then in Intramuros until it
was totally destroyed by shelling and fire during the liberation of Manila. After losing the Colegio, the Sisters
sought refuge at St. Rita's College which was fortunately spared from the ravages of war. The Sisters taught in
St. Rita's College to support themselves, determined to keep alive the name of this illustrious college. The
zealous Sisters left no stone unturned until they found a temporary home for its students. It was through the
kindness of the benevolent and compassionate Monsignor Vicente Reyes, then Parish Priest of San Miguel
Parish, who offered some rooms in the convent so that the Sisters were able to start anew their apostolate of
educating the young. The sisters, led by Sr. Juana Zabalza, Superior of the College at that time, and the
indefatigable principal Sr. Candida Ocampo, who later became the first Filipina Superior of the College, were
able to acquire the former St. Rita at 210 Taft Avenue, Manila. Some time after the war the name was changed
to, Santa Isabel College. Since 1968 four buildings
were added to Santa Isabel. The school
auditorium, built in 1953, was modernized. The
Sister Catalina Ledesma Mini Recital Hall was
constructed from the funds provided by the Sister
Catalina Scholarship Foundation. In 1982, Santa
Isabel College celebrated its 350th Foundation
Anniversary. After three and a half centuries,
Santa Isabel College has expanded its educational

In the 1970s, the school, then named St. Theresa's Academy (STA), started to emerge in the limelight in the
field of education, with the guidance of Msgr. Alberto Boongaling. His work was continued by Rev. Fr.
Conrado G. Castillo, who served as the director in the year 19841994 and as the first college president from
19942004. After his term, Rev. Fr. Carlo Magno C. Ilagan took over his presidency, and during the year 2004
2015, he instigated numerous reforms and school development programs that included the opening of a tertiary
school, building of classrooms and offices among others.


Colegio San Agustn Makati (abbreviated as
CSA or CSA-Makati) is a private, co-educational
Catholic school conducted by the Order of Saint
Augustine. It is located on Palm Avenue,
Dasmarias Village, Makati City, Philippines.
While it is not the oldest Augustinian school in the
Philippines named Colegio San Agustn (that
distinction belongs to Colegio San Agustin-
Bacolod), it is the most prominent and famous
among its namesake. The school is one of the most
diverse in the Philippines in terms of nationality,
with 11% of the student population coming from over 40 countries.[1] And like its sister schools, the students of
CSA-Makati are called Augustinians (Filipino: Agustino).
In 1967 the Augustinians, with the approval of the Father Provincial Santos Abia y Polvorosa, O.S.A.,
purchased from Ayala y Ca eight (8) hectares of land in Dasmarias Village, Makati, with an option to buy
four (4) adjacent hectares within ten years. On November 24, 1976, nine years later, they received as donation
from Ayala y Ca, two of the four (4) hectares stipulated in the option agreement. In turn, they released the last
two (2) hectares of land to Ayala y Ca, for the latter to sell to other parties. By then, Colegio San Agustn
already owned ten hectares: eight (8), through purchase and two (2), through donation.
To organize a new corporation, the Augustinians used an existing organization, Colegio San Agustn (Bacolod),
Inc. to acquire the land, agree to the option and make initial payments. Fr. Ambrosio Galindez, O.S.A. of
Colegio San Agustn (Bacolod), Inc. and Mr. Miguel Ortigas of Makati Development Corporation (now part of
Ayala Corporation) signed the agreements in January 1967. The agreements stipulated that within six months
the purchaser must submit a development plan to the owner that would include the setting up of elementary,
high school and college facilities within the area, upon which detailed plans for the buildings to be constructed
would be based. When the new corporation emerged, the president, Fr. Ambrosio Galindez, O.S.A., transferred
the rights from Colegio San Agustn (Bacolod) to San Agustn College (Makati), Inc. on 25 April 1967.
Auxiliary Bishop Bienvenido Lopez, D.D., blessed the cornerstone of the first CSA building on 1 September
1968. Ten months later, on 7 July 1969, the school opened its doors to the first enrollees, both male and female,
numbering 652. On 28 August 1969, Cardinal Rufino Santos blessed the first buildings constructed by well-
known Architect Manuel T. Maosa, Jr. the administration building, which served as the priests residence, and
the grade school building, phase 1, which temporarily housed kindergarten, preparatory, elementary and high
school levels. At the start, only two priests, Frs. ngel Rodrguez, O.S.A. and Horacio Rodrguez, O.S.A., ran
the school with the help of twenty-four lady teachers. The levels offered then were kindergarten, preparatory,

grades one to six, first and second year high school. The addition of grade seven, third and fourth year high
school came in subsequent years. Today, there are six Augustinian priests and nearly four hundred employees in
CSA. Classes from nursery to preparatory, grades one to twelve (implementationof the K-12 program), serve a
clientele of more than 6,100 students.

the American era, brought about education reform.
