Our School

St. Ignatius



An Educational Institution Established by the Ateneo de San Pablo Alumni Foundation


In 1947, missionary priests of the Society of Jesus introduced in San Pablo City and its neighboring towns the Jesuit Education System with the opening of the Ateneo de San Pablo. The institution produced proffesionals and leaders of varied disciplines who are now respected in government, business, politics, academe, civil society, and many important sectors of the Philippine society.

In 1978, the Ateneo de San Pablo ceased to operate. Imbued with pride of their alma mater, members of the Ateneo de San Pablo Alumni Association in cooperation with the Ateneo de San Pablo Alumni Foundation Inc., who felt orphaned by the decommissioning of the school, made plans to keep the Ateneo spirit alive. In pursuit of this plan, the Foundation focused its efforts and energies towards the reopening of the decommissioned school or the re-introduction of the Jesuit education system in the City of the San Pablo. Through the years, the dream and aspiration of every San Pablo to see the return of the Purple Panther remained as such, but not until December 2005 when the Foundation held its first major fund raising campaign, the “IBALIK ANG ATENEO MOVEMENT FUND DRIVE”. Through the fund drive, the Foundation raised the initial fund to start the process of reintroducing the Jesuit Education System to the youth of San Pablo City and its neighboring towns. Thus, the birth of the new school: Academia de San Ignacio de Loyola (ASIL).
