Bacolod Community and St. Scholastica's Academy

St. Scholastica’s Academy in Bacolod
. After reconstruction of the devastated St. Scholastica’s Priory and College, the requests for schools re-started. Alumnae of St. Scholastica’s College, Manila, asked for a school in Bacolod City where their children could get a Scholastican education. Mr. Alfredo Montelibano donated the land where the new St. Scholastica’s Academy, Bacolod opened in 1958. Presently, it has a total student population of 1813.

Educational Apostolate 2 - Holy Family Vocational High School

Holy Family Vocational High School in Sum-ag. Stirred by their social consciences, a number of these Scholasticans proposed to initiate setting up a free school where poor girls could learn the home arts and have better chances for employment after high school. This was the start of Holy Family Vocational High School in 1966. Finding the cause worthy of endorsement, the German government a few years later donated a larger building with well-equipped laboratories for science, sewing and cooking. About 300 young girls have the chance of a good Catholic and practical education.
