Through the years
ASSUMPTION ANTIPOLO'S EDUCATIONAL APOSTOLATE nestles in the lush greenery of Antipolo’s hills. The physical structure of the buildings, with spacious classrooms and wide open doors, provides an atmosphere conducive to learning.
The beginning of Assumption Antipolo marked the formal closing of the Assumption in Malate. With the location gradually ceasing to provide the climate conducive to learning, the sisters decided to move the Grade School to Antipolo on September 11, 1974. In 1987, the High School opened and had its first graduates in March 1991.
As a Christ-centered school community, Christian Living Education or CLE is at the heart of the curriculum.
Assumption Antipolo offers formation programs intrinsic to the development of persons, namely the Alay Kapwa Program and the Environmental Education Program.
The Center for Service and Sharing or the CSS is a liaison between the Assumption and the neighboring communities for implementing the Alay Kapwa Program and for the development of the "sitios" around the school. The CSS started in 1978 as an outreach program of the community of sisters, faculty and staff for the poor families around Assumption Antipolo. Over the years, what started as the school's outreach program has developed into a Center that serves 10 "sitios" surrounding the school through its programs and services. These include community building, livelihood, health and nutrition, spiritual/faith formation, youth formation, and school exposure and immersion programs.
Given the present environmental situation of the country, Assumption Antipolo launched a Center for Peace and Ecology named PACEM. Established in July 1991 at Assumption Antipolo, PACEM aims to re-establish the human-earth partnership through theory and practice.
Assumption Antipolo has a Retreat House for students and other groups in search of spiritual renewal as well as social and personal formation.
In August 2001, the school inaugurated the Assumpta Theater. Acclaimed as the CCP of the East, the Assumpta Theater has grown into a a beautiful, sophisticated, world-class theater that promotes cultural awareness, educational upliftment, and appreciation of the performing arts.
Assumption Antipolo envisions a community rooted in Christ and empowered for the transformation of persons and society. The community of sisters, faculty, staff, auxiliary, CSS personnel and members, students, parents and alumnae commit themselves to work as ONE towards justice, peace, care for creation and solidarity.
