Educating Men and Women of Character

The educational philosophy of PAREF Schools is inspired by the teachings of St. Josemaria Escriva on two main ideas – (1) integral education; and (2) parents as the primary character educators of their children.

Integral education develops a child into a well-rounded individual by forming all aspects of her person—the physical, social, intellectual, moral, and spiritual—in an atmosphere of love for the truth as well as respect for the dignity and freedom of the person.

The education of children is, first and foremost, the responsibility of parents. Therefore, collaboration and partnership between the school and the home are essential to ensure the student’s holistic development that help her achieve her potentials and direct them towards doing good.

The PAREF System is now a big family with thirteen schools. With PAREF’s existence spanning more than three and a half decades, we have graduated more than 8,000 students; most of whom are already engaged in the world of work. These are the people whose lives we have touched; whose minds and hearts we hope continue to positively transform society from within.


Academic excellence is a vital aspect of the PAREF education. It is based on an integrated approach that balances the student’s intellectual, moral, social, spiritual, and physical development.

Personal Formation

The PAREF personal formation program consists of means of formation over and above the academic program that aim for one’s integral development. These means of formation endeavor to lead each student to a greater self-knowledge to prepare the student for life here and hereafter.

Mentoring System

Every student is assigned a personal mentor who becomes the student's life coach and friend. The PAREF mentoring system paves the way for each individual’s character growth and development, which consequently impacts the student's academic performance.
