HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

 

 

            As part of the “Spirit of Reform” spreading throughout Cristendom, the Order of Augustinian Recollects emerged during the last quarter of the sixteenth century (1588), as a movement aiming for a stricter observance of the Rule of St. Augustine.

 

                The Recollects initially adopted the Charism of a Contemplative Life. However, the great demand for missionaries required by the recently undertaken evangelization of the Philippine Islands called upon them to accept missionary work.

 

                In the year 1606, the first group of Recollect missionaries reached the Philippine shores. Mindful of the mission they have to accomplish, they spread themselves nearly all over the Philippine archipelago, and succeeded in establishing missions in regions not yet evangelized by other religious orders.

 

                In 1616, the Recollect Fathers built a church and convent in Cavite. They remained here, spreading the light of the Gospel and promoting Christian civilization, until the outbreak of World War II.

 

                The Recollect Fathers, determined to continue the work which they had begun in Cavite, founded San Sebastian College-Recoletos in 1966. At first, the school had only a single building, part of which was the Religious Fathers’ residence, with only 281 students from the high school and college departments.

 

                Over the years, the student population increased, particularly in the college department. This development prompted the enhancement of the college’s pool of educators, as well as the corresponding expansion and upgrading of its facilities, and curricular offerings. From its humble beginnings, San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Cavite continued to evolve into one of the leading educational institutions in the Province of Cavite.

 

                In 1977, a four-storey right-wing extension was built, where the chapel (ground floor), additional classrooms, and the auditorium (fourth floor) are located.

 

                The small gymnasium along Espiritu Street, across the rear of the main campus, was converted into Religious Fathers’ residence in 1983, thereby allowing more rooms and offices for the school, out of the portion vacated by the priests.

 

                In 1986, the high school department was made co-educational to accommodate young girls seeking admission into the school.

 

            In response to the continuously increasing student population, and the need to have more classrooms and facilities, an Industrial Technology laboratory and a five-storey building was constructed in 1995. The edifice was inaugurated on September 28, 1996. The five-storey building, named after the first Recollect Saint, St. Ezekiel Moreno, has a spacious lobby and currently houses the college library at the second floor, computer laboratories at the third floor, the all digital mass communications laboratory and the criminology laboratory at the fourth floor, and the HRM laboratory and mini hotel at the fifth floor. This structure is also the home of the Graduate School of Business, which opened in 1995 and had its first batch of graduates in 1997.

 

                A few months after the inauguration of the St. Ezekiel Moreno building, the four-storey building named San Jose Obrero (St. Joseph the Worker), was annexed to it to accommodate the canteen, more classrooms, and other facilities, such as the Instructional Media Center viewing room, and a conference room at the penthouse. Presently, the building also houses a speech laboratory.

 

                In 2000, another five-storey building, named after Our Lady of Consolation (OLC), was constructed in answer to the growing needs of the College of Engineering. Today, the OLC Building, inaugurated in 2001, houses not only the different engineering laboratories, offices and classrooms, but also the College of Nursing which opened in 2004.

 

                In 2001, SSC-R marked new territory within the City of Cavite with the acquisition of a one-hectare property by the Bacoor and Cañacao Bays in Bo. Rosario, San Roque. The acquisition is in line with the program of providing total quality Christian education from preschool to college, and to build a new landmark in Caviteño history, the Recoletos 4th Centennial Gymnasium. The gymnasium, inaugurated in August 18, 2004, is the home of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) in the province of Cavite, and the nurturing ground of both athletes and performing artists as well.

 

Located within the property is the new four-storey building that houses the Primary (preschool, grade school) and Secondary levels. After the building’s inauguration in February 18, 2006, SSC-R opened its doors to Preschool and Grade School students in June 5, 2006. This expansion program of offering the Primary level is the administration’s response to the desire of the Caviteño parents to provide their children with a strong educational foundation.

 

                From 1966 to the present, SSC-R, as a Catholic educational institution, and as an integral part of the Augustinian Recollect apostolate, has been committed to the total formation of man. Through the years, the institution has endeavored for the learners to become truly men of their time, who are able to relate all human values and culture to the concept of salvation and happiness.

 

                Fruits of the Augustinian Recollect labor of love, many, if not all of SSC-R graduates, have excelled in their respective professions, and have proven the school worthy of the trust and confidence the Caviteños have bestowed on it.

 

            Inspired by its manifold achievements, the SSC-R administration is continuously exerting efforts into giving their best for the further improvement of the college, consistent with the objectives and goals of the founding fathers, with the help of the whole academic community, and the almighty God.

RECOLETOS SCHOOLS IN THE PHILIPPINES

 

            True to the motto of the Recollect Order “LOVE AND LEARNING” the religious prime movers believe that education must minister to the needs of the minds, the body and the soul of man.  Thus, when the OAR Provincial Chapter convened in Manila in 1940, one of the provisions stated, “It is the unanimous aspiration of the Fathers gathered in this Chapter that schools of primary and secondary education and college be founded as soon as possible.”

 

The RECOLETOS now operates a vast network of schools all over the Philippines, fully committed to the training of the Filipino youth for God and country.  Listed below are the schools administered by the Recollect religious in the Philippines:

 

University of San Jose-Recoletos, Cebu City (1947)

The University of San Jose-Recoletos stands for “quality Christian Community-Oriented Education.” From its modest origin in 1947, with Fr. Martin Legarra, ORSA, who served as the first Rector, it has now become a dominant force in the academic sector at par with the prestigious educational institutions in the whole archipelago. After having been declared a university in 1984, USJ-R has competently maintained its level 3 university status, holding up to its lofty distinction. Now, USJ-R moves forward to meet the future with a renewed commitment, always confident in the united efforts of all the components, and forever forging industry, technology, and humanities for the greater glory of God.

 

University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos, Bacolod City (1941) 

The university started in 1941 as a non-sectarian institution in the municipality of Talisay, a five-kilometer stretch from the provincial capital, Bacolod. Originally meant to meet the academic needs of the town, the Occidental Negros Institute, as it was then known, was transferred to Bacolod City to cater to the educational challenges of the city. It acquired its university status on May 5, 1957 and five years later, on May 25, 1962, the school was entrusted to the hands of the Augustinian Recollects who renamed it as University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos. Fr. Federico Terradillos, ORSA served as the first Recollect religious school head. Today’s biggest Catholic University in Negros Occidental, UNO-R looks forward to greater heights of development and academic achievements.

 

San Sebastian College-Recoletos, Manila (1941)

Impelled by the Christian principle of education as the “harmonious and complete development of the whole man” and the “formation of the totus Christus,” San Sebastian College-Recoletos, once an exclusive school for boys, now gives every opportunity to develop a well-rounded and integrated studentry. The school seeks to prepare “highly serviceable men and women who will be self-reliant and able to contribute materially to the progress of the country.” The PAASCU accredited elementary, high school and tertiary departments have distinctively articulated SSC-R’s vision of and commitment to quality Christian education.

 

San Sebastian College-Recoletos, Cavite City (1966).

SSC-R de Cavite aims at molding the Filipino youth, and more particularly the Caviteños, in the authentic Filipino tradition and values of our people in the hope of instilling in them the knowledge, attitudes and habits that will make them men and women of their time: truly aware of and responsive to the challenges and aspirations of the country. The school has recently implemented its physical expansion scheme to meet the more pressing demand of the academic community. Through its academic operation set-up, facilities and curricular offerings, SSC-R de Cavite aspires to its long-term educational goals. Now nearing its 50th year of continuing service, San Sebastian college-Recoletos de Cavite commits herself to a quality Christian education.

 

Colegio de Sto. Tomas-Recoletos, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental (1941)

Originally known as Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Institute, Colegio de Sto. Tomas-Recoletos formally opened its scholastic year on June 23, 1941 with Fr. Pedro Zunsarren, ORSA as the first Rector. However, the solemn blessing of this school took place on June 20, 1941. It was abruptly closed on December 10 of the same year due to the onset of World War II. The school was then converted into a hospital, and eventually used by the United States Armed Forces of the Far East as a military training camp for Filipino recruits who would later be sent to the battle front. With the occupation by the Japanese soldiers, the school passed to their hands and they turned it into a military office. In November of 1944, the school was totally plundered, but still managed to resume its academic operation on June 2, 1945. When the normalcy was re-established, the school continued to progress. Orginally established as an exclusive educational institution for boys in June of 1941, CST-R now caters to the city’s educational needs resulting in the adoption of a co-educational system of instruction.

 

UNO-R High School, Talisay City, Negros Occidental (1971). 

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Recollect Fathers had already founded a parochial school in the town of Talisay, Negros Occidental but was closed years later. Out of necessity and convenience, the Recollect fathers thought of establishing a new Catholic school within the town in the late 60’s. The plan was to build a secondary school to be affiliated to the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos located in Bacolod City, some five (5) kilometers away from the town. Hence the cornerstone was laid and blessed on January 1, 1971 by Most Rev. Antonio Fortich, D.D., the bishop of Bacolod during that time. Six months later, on June 15, 1971, the new school building beside the parish church was blessed and inaugurated. Its first director was Fr. Florentino Echevarri, OAR. Today, this humble school takes pride of having formed good and successful citizens serving the town and the whole island of Negros.

 

San Pedro Academy, Valencia, Negros Oriental (1961)

It was more providential that the town of Valencia, Negros Oriental became a mission center under the overseeing staff of Recoletos missionaries. The year 1904 saw the opening of the parochial school originally meant for children. The daring investment of time and talent in Christian education soon earned the trust of the populace. Their missionary effort yielded encouraging results. It was the missionaries’ apostolic diligence coupled with the community’s favorable response that became the moving inspiration behind the expansion of what now stands in San Pedro Academy located in the center itself of the municipality. A high school branch in the outlying barangay Caidiocan is a concrete testimony to the Recollects’ undying dedication to the educational apostolate.

V. CATEGORIES OF ADMINISTRATIVE PENALTIES

 

            “The three categories of disciplinary administrative sanctions for serious offenses or violation of school rules and regulations which may be applied upon an erring pupil or students are: Suspension, Exclusion and Expulsion.”

 

1.) SUSPENSION. Suspension is a penalty in which the school is allowed to deny or deprive an erring pupil or student of attendance in classes for a period not exceeding twenty (20) percent of the prescribed class days for the school year or term.

 

The decision of the school on every case involving the penalty of suspension which exceeds twenty (20) days for a school year or term shall be forwarded to the Regional Office concerned within ten (10) days from the termination of the investigation of each case for its information.

 

a.)    PUNITIVE SUSPENSION.  Punitive suspension refers to the school’s prevention of a student from attending class and thus from taking any examinations, quizzes and graded recitations given during the specified period. Since he is not excused from these graded work, he shall be given a failing mark for not having taken them; nor will be given special examinations to make up for them later, as that would grant him an advantage over his more scrupulous classmates.

 

b.)    PREVENTIVE SUSPENSION. A pupil or student under investigation of a case involving the penalty of expulsion may be preventively suspended from entering the school premises if the evidence of guilt is strong and the school head is morally convinced that the continued stay of the pupil or student during the period of the investigation constitutes a distraction to the normal operation of the school or poses a risk or danger to the life of persons and property of the school.

            

2.)    EXCLUSION. Exclusion is a penalty which the school is allowed to exclude or drop the name of the erring pupil or student from the school rolls for being undesirable and transfer credentials immediately issued. A summary investigation shall have been conducted and no prior approval by the department is required in the imposition of the penalty.

                       

                The decision of the school on every case involving the penalty of the exclusion from the rolls together with the pertinent papers thereof shall be filed in the school for a period of one year in order to afford the Department the opportunity to review the case in the event an appeal is taken by the party concerned.

           

3.) EXPULSION. Expulsion is an extreme penalty on an erring pupil or student consisting of his exclusion from admission to any public or private school in the Philippines and which requires the prior approval of the Secretary of education. The penalty may be imposed for acts or offenses constituting gross misconduct, dishonesty, hazing, carrying  deadly weapons, immorality, selling and/ or possession of prohibited drugs such as marijuana, drug dependency, drunkenness, hooliganism,  vandalism, and other serious school offenses such as assaulting a pupil or student or school personnel, instigating or leading illegal strikes or similar concerted activities resulting in the stoppage of classes, preventing or threatening any pupil or student or school personnel from entering the school premises or attending classes or discharging their duties, forging or tampering school records or school forms, and securing or using forged school records, forms and documents.

                                          

      The decision of the school on every case involving the penalty of the expulsion, together with the supporting papers shall be forwarded to the Regional Office concerned within ten (10) days from the termination of the investigation of each case.

 

VI. AUTHORITY TO PROMULGATE DISCIPLINARY RULES

 

            “Every private school shall have the right to promulgate reasonable norms,       rules and regulations it may deem necessary and consistent with the provisions of the Manual for the maintenance of good discipline and attendance. Such rules and regulations shall be effective as of the date of promulgation and notification to students in an appropriate issuance or publication.”

Manual of regulations for Private Schools

 

Art. XIV Sec. 78

 

 

VII. ABSENCES

 

                “A pupil or student in a private school who incurs absences of more than twenty percent (20%) of prescribed number of class or laboratory periods during the school year or term should be given a failing grade and given no credit for the course or subject. However, the school may adopt an attendance policy to govern absences of its students who belong to the upper half of their respective classes. Furthermore, the school head may at his discretion and in the individual case exempt a student who exceeds the twenty percent (20%) limit for reasons considered valid and acceptable to the school.”
