1. Heritage

!n April 1651, a child was born to a wealthy family in Rheims, France.
Although raised and educated with all the privileges that accompanied his
influential social standing, early on in his life Jean Baptist De La Salle became
disturbed by what he saw in society: widespread poverty and the plight of
poor children who seemed .so far from salvation" and were .often left to
themselves and badly brought-up."

Ordained a priest at the age of 27, De La Salle went on to devote himself to
the Christian education of the poor. He began by recruiting young men
whom he trained to become good Christian teachers, went on to found
schools for poor children, and eventually renounced his personal wealth to
found a community of educators which in time became the Brothers of the
Christian Schools, better known in the Philippines as the La Salle Brothers.

Canonized a saint of the Catholic Church in 1900 and proclaimed Patron of
Christian Teachers in 1950, St. John Baptist De La Salle is recognized as the
Father of Nodern Education, an educational innovator who continues to be
the guiding spirit that animates every La Salle school. Today, more than
three centuries after their founding, there are more than 10,000 La Salle
Brothers serving the youth in schools, colleges, universities and other
institutions in more than 80 countries throughout the world.

2. The La Salle Brothers in the Philippines

The Brothers first came to the Philippines in 1911, when they established a
small school in Nanila which in time grew to become De La Salle University.
Having established a reputation for excellent Christian education, the
Brothers expanded their efforts in the country and established the University
of St. La Salle in Bacolod City (1952), La Salle Academy in !ligan City (1958)
La Salle Green Hills in Nandaluyong City (1959), St. Joseph's High School in
Bacolod City (1960), and De La Salle Lipa in Lipa City (1962). Other schools
followed, and almost a century after their arrival in the country, the Lasallian
education benefits almost 90,000 students throughout the Philippines.


3. History of De La Salle Lipa

Founded in 1962 by the Brothers of the Christian School, De La Salle
Lipa was built on a 5.9 hectare lot along the National Highway. Financed by
interest-free loans from Caltex and Shell corporations, construction of the three
one-storey wings of classrooms, a gymnasium-auditorium and the Brothers'
House began on 29 January 1962. During its first year, De La Salle Lipa operated
as the Boys' Department of the Naryknoll Sisters' Our Lady of the Rosary
Academy (OLRA). As the Naryknoll Sisters were phasing out OLRA's Boys'
Department, 221 students were admitted from first to fourth year.

Three Brothers and seven lay teachers composed the first staff of the
school. Br. Henry virgil FSC was the first Director and Principal.

On its second year of operations, the school obtained a temporary
permit to operate as La Salle High School. After one year and seven months of
guiding the fledgling institution, Br. virgil died of a heart attack on 22 September
1963. Br. Hugh Damian took his place and held the helm for the next two years.

The school population more than doubled during its fourth year of
operations. This necessitated the construction of the two-storey St. Joseph Hall
during the administration of Br. Frederick Nartin FSC in 1967.

Towards the end of the decade as OLRA continued to send its boys to La
Salle High School, a large percentage of students began to come from the
various public elementary schools around the city. Thus, to better prepare
students for the high school, the elementary grades were opened in 1967, with
Br. vernon Nabile FSC as Principal.

!n 1969, Br. Rafael Donato FSC arrived to become Director and Principal.
!t was during his term that the new school seal was designed. The tradition of
staging an annual school fair was also begun.

After Br. Rafael's departure for La Salle Greenhills in 1970, Br. Crisanto
Noreno FSC became the Principal. Br. Gregory Refuerzo FSC was the Director.
During the term of the two in office, a new library and a sports complex were
constructed. The faade was improved and wooden bleachers inside the
gymnasium were constructed. The school became known as De La Salle ng Lipa.

Girls were first accepted in school year 197+-75 when Br. Emiliano
Hudtohan FSC was the Principal. The girls, however, were limited to the first and
second year levels.
!t was during the term of Br. Antonio Narciso FSC that the school's
incorporation papers and by-laws were amended. The school was officially
registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as De La Salle Lipa, !nc.

An attempt at securing PAASCU accreditation was made during the term
of Br. Jaime de Guzman FSC. His term of office is remembered for the
construction of the four grade school classrooms, which would eventually be
known as the !mmaculate Conception Hall.

During the term of Br. Samuel Bueser FSC late in the seventies, a
modified split-schedule for freshmen and sophomores was implemented to
accommodate the growing student population. Enrolment had soared to 1,200.
Another effort was made to gain PAASCU accreditation, and this, along with
moves to open a College Department, came to fruition after Br. Samuel's term
was completed.

!n school year 1982-83, De La Salle Lipa received its first high school
PAASCU accreditation. Br. Eugenio Tianco FSC was the Principal, while Br.
Gregory returned to occupy the Director's position. During the school year, an
extension to the library was constructed along with an office for guidance
counseling. Also, the !mmaculate Conception Hall was completed during the

Br. Jaime Dalumpines FSC was appointed Principal in 1983. Because of
recommendations contained in the PAASCU report, reforms were instituted. The
two-year old split schedule for freshmen and sophomores was scrapped.
Administration was decentralized and Year Level Noderators were introduced for
improved student supervision.

!n 1985, the College Department came into existence with an enrollment
of 130 students. The College offered Bachelor of Science in Commerce with
majors in Business Nanagement and Agribusiness Nanagement.

Br. Jaime went on to complete a 5-year term, the last of which was
school year 1987-88. He left soon afterwards for Canada for further studies, and
was replaced by Br. Edgardo Jayme FSC. The latter stayed for only a few months
and left the school in midterm. Ns. Norma Blanco was appointed Acting Principal,

assisted by a council composed of the Year Level Noderators and the
Department Heads.

Ns. Blanco was formally appointed as the first lay principal of the high
school the following Nay. During Ns. Blanco's term, the 1100 wing was
constructed to house the freshmen classes. Also, the Elementary Department
was reopened.

Because of the rapid growth of the !nstitution in the nineties, it became
necessary in 199+ to appoint a resident president. The position was given to
alumnus Br. Narciso Erguiza FSC who, in 197+, was briefly assigned to the school
but had spent most of his years as a De La Salle Brother elsewhere.

Br. Erquiza stayed for two school years and reorganized the
administrative structure. The major academic and service departments became
known as units" and their respective heads sat in the President's Council, which
met weekly. Strategic directions were drafted and implemented, which
emphasized the growing role of the college in the community.

Also, in the nineties, the College Department added more courses such
as Secretarial Administration; Agribusiness Nanagement with majors in
Horticulture and Animal Husbandry; Bachelor of Elementary Education; Bachelor
of Secondary Education with majors in English, Nath, Religious Education and
Environmental Science; and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science,
Accountancy and Hotel and Restaurant Nanagement.

With Br. Erguiza requesting to pursue fulltime graduate studies at the
end of his second year in office, Br. Donato was requested by Br. Benildo
Feliciano FSC, the Brother Provincial, to become President of the school. The
latter accepted and was officially installed in ceremonies held on 15 Nay 1995.

Under Br. Donato's term, De La Salle Lipa embarked on a massive
physical plant development program which completely transformed the
!nstitution. various innovations were also introduced. The elementary and
secondary units were integrated into what was known as the Unified School, with
homerooms named after parishes, Philippine cities and cities around Southeast
Asia and the Oceania region where De La Salle schools are located.

A graduate program was offered for the first time in the school's history.
The school's Naster in Nanagement Technology program, the first of its kind in
the Philippines, combines business management with information technology.


Nore course offerings were made available in the Tertiary School at the
turn of the century as programs in Secretarial Administration and Agribusiness
Nanagement were phased out. Courses in Financial Nanagement, Bachelor of
Science in Computer Engineering, Economics, Nanagement Technology, Legal
Nanagement, and certificate courses in Entrepreneurship, Hotel and Restaurant
Nanagement and !nformation technology were opened. !n the later years,
Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Electronics and Communications Engineering,
!ndustrial Engineering, Bachelor of Arts in Communication, Bachelor of Science in
Nathematics, Nursing, Tourism, Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship, Biology
and Electrical Engineering were also offered.

Br. Donato retired in 2003 after having presided over the most intensive
period of growth and development that the school had ever known. Br. Nanuel
Pajarillo FSC was installed as 3
President of De La Salle Lipa on 15 Nay 2003.

Under Br. Pajarillo's term, the grade school and the high school levels of
the Unified School (re-named later as the !ntegrated School under the
supervision of its principal, Ns. violeta Ramirez) received their level 2 clean" re-
accreditation status for five years from PAASCU. This was the highest rating
received by the high school level since 1983 and the first 5-year re-accreditation
status for the grade school level.

The College, with its goal of improving its academic programs submitted
applications for the PAASCU accreditation of the following programs: Business
Nanagement, Education, Accountancy, Hotel and Restaurant Nanagement,
Computer Science, and Financial Nanagement. Business Nanagement and
Education were granted level 1 accreditation status in 2005 while the rest had
their preliminary visit the year after.

New facilities were built and information technology was improved. The
Apolinario Nabini and the St. Br. Benilde buildings were constructed to provide
facilities for the science courses in College and new classrooms for the Primary
Learning Community of the !ntegrated School respectively. Wireless !nternet
connectivity was introduced to keep abreast with new trends in information

!n school year 2005-2006, changes in the school's seal, mission-vision
statement, organizational structure and nomenclature were implemented in
response to new challenges in Lasallian education. Buildings in the !ntegrated
School were named after Lasallian saints and a Lasallian Brother (Br. Gregory

Refuerzo FSC) while College buildings were named after Philippine heroes and
prominent Batanguenos.

!n 2006, Br. Nanuel Pajarillo FSC was assigned as !nterim President of
De La Salle University Dasmarinas and the De La Salle Health and Science
Campus while still serving as President of De La Salle Lipa.

4. The School Seal

The cross which divides the shield into four,
symbolizes the school's adherence to Catholic
values and traditions, which are embodied in the
teachings of the founder, St. John Baptist De La

The three broken chevrons correspond to the
broken bones sustained by Johan Salla, the great
grandfather of St. John Baptist De La Salle, in a
battle against the Noors while serving as Chief
Warrior of Atphonus the Chaste, King of Oviedo in
Spain. The broken chevrons became part of the
coat of arms of the family of St. John Baptist De La

A favorite Batangueno weapon of defense, the
balisong attests to the Batanguenos' craftsmanship
and symbolizes the bravery of what is nevertheless
a peace loving-people


Also known as the tree of life, the coconut tree is
versatile and is able to ride the winds of change,
the same characteristics which are common among
Lipenos. The very site where DLSL was built in
1962 was a plantation of the tree of life, now
immortalized in the school's coat of arms.

Lipa's cool climate makes it perfect for
breeding horses, in fact a few stables still remain.
The stallion represents strength, industry and the
ability to conquer, qualities the Lasallians of
Batangas should seek to posses.


The Laurel Leaves at the sides of the shield
symbolize excellence which is part of De La Salle
Lipa's mission. Laurel leaves were used in ancient
times as symbol of achievements and excellence
and are placed as crown on the head of people who
are in authority or those who excelled in a
particular endeavor.


The five-pointed star above the shield symbolizes
the Signum Fidei. !t is a sign of faith, and is the
symbol of the De La Salle Brothers (Fraternum
Scholarum Christianarum). The star, signifying
faith, also means hope. The Sign of Faith is one of
the hallmark virtues by which John Baptist De La
Salle guided his educational enterprise.



The banners below the shield contain
a. the name of the school (De La Salle
b. the year it was founded (1962),
c. the initials of our country (R.P. -
Republic of the Philippines); and
d. the Latin phrase Crescit Gratia
virtuteque" which literally means He
grew in grace and wisdom". This phrase
was lifted from the Holy Gospel
according to Luke, chapter 2 verses +0-
+2 indicating how the child Jesus grew
up. This should be the same way our
students should grow and the rest of the
members of the school community
should develop.



Deeply moved, as St. John Baptist De La Salle was, by the plight of the poor and
the youth at risk, we, the members of the Lasallian schools in the Philippines,
commit ourselves to the Lasallian Nission of providing a human and Christian
education to the young, especially in schools, with the service of the poor as
priority, in order to evangelize and catechize, to promote peace and justice,
accomplishing these together as shared mission. We draw strength from the
many Lasallians committed to incarnating our charism in our country today to
serve the needs of Filipino youth, especially those at risk.


!nflamed by the Holy Spirit, God's own Fire, we declare our commitment to the

We shall work together as a national network of Lasallian schools in the
Philippines for the efficient and effective implementation of the Lasallian
Nission, following the directives of the De La Salle Brothers and the
Philippine Lasallian Family as set by the General Chapter, the District
Chapter, and the Philippine Lasallian Family Convocation.

We shall ensure the integrity of the Lasallian Nission by setting directions
and standards applicable to Philippine Lasallian schools and by
monitoring their implementation.

We shall promote the Lasallian Nission by fostering synergy,
collaboration and sharing among Lasallian schools.

We shall uphold the Lasallian values of faith, zeal in service and
communion in mission.


!n all these, we, together and by association, dedicate our life and work to God,
Who alone guarantees the fulfillment of our Lasallian dream.


Vision-Mission Statement

To be a sign of faith as an excellent educational institution, sharing in the
Lasallian mission of teaching minds, touching hearts and transforming lives.

Definition of Terms


To be a sign of faith is for DLSL to be witness to the values of communion with
God and the priority of the gospel in human life, and be committed to growth in
the spirit of faith as described in the Foundational Principles of Lasallian
The spirit of faith flows from a relationship of
communion with the Triune God who wills to save all people by
drawing them into a life-giving communion with Him and with
one another. !n the Lasallian tradition, the spirit of faith is a
spirit that allows one to:

a. discover God's active presence in His Word,
in men and women, in the poor, in nature,
in history and in ourselves;

b. judge and evaluate things in the light of the
c. search for God's will in order to carry out His
saving plan;
d. unite one's actions to the ongoing saving
action of God in the world; and
e. trust in God's loving presence and
providence when acting or discerning God's

The spirit of faith is a disposition of the mind and heart
that (1) allows believers to interpret, judge and evaluate reality
in the light of the Gospel; (2) moves and motivates them to
contribute actively to the fulfillment of God's saving plan; (3)
enables them to take necessary risks and act with boldness in
accomplishing what is demanded by each situation, placing their
trust in God's providence to guide, sustain and make fruitful
their efforts.


An excellent educational institution is one that is dynamic, maintains
quality programs, provides services beyond what is basically required, and equips
its members with the virtues, knowledge and skills necessary to live productive
professional and civic lives anywhere in the world. Because the institution's
excellence is anchored on Gospel values, this excellence makes DLSL a sign of


Teaching minds is empowering members of the Lasallian family to become
lifelong learners who are competent, creative, critical, and committed to service.
!t is also the act of promoting a culture of partnership, collaboration, and co-
responsibility for the mission among administrators, students, faculty, and staff.
As a community dedicated to education and inspired by the Lasallian spirit, DLSL
offers educational experiences that are collaborative, contextual, dynamic, and
pedagogically diverse.

Guiding Principles of the Philippine Lasallian Family, Philippine Lasallian Family 2005


Touching hearts for DLSL is the provision of an education that expresses a
genuine care and concern for students in their individuality and uniqueness, an
education that invites them to become their best selves and moves them to
become agents for the transformation of others and of the society to which they


Transforming lives pertains to the act of serving as inspiration for others to live a
life of faith, commitment, and service. !nspired by the charism and vision of our
founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle, we become ambassadors of Christ,
spreading the Good News through our actions and making a difference in the
lives of people that we encounter. By creating concrete programs that serve the
poor and provide the less fortunate with the chance for a better life, an equal
opportunity to quality education, and a renewed relationship with God, DLSL
becomes an instrument for the transformation of lives.


Part of De La Salle Lipa's goal is to form its members into D!SC!PLES of
the Catholic faith and true followers of St. John Baptist De La Salle. !t therefore
aims to form among its members the following core values:


De La Salle Lipa is committed towards the formation of a community
wherein individuals are self-disciplined and practice self-control towards being
proactive members of our society. !t forms individuals who organize their
environment, and set priorities and are capable of following through to its
conclusive end, individuals who are willing to obey rules and follow legitimate
authority for the betterment of all.


De La Salle Lipa is committed towards the formation of a community
wherein individuals are not duplicitous but are united in their words and actions;
individuals who adhere to moral values that make a whole and integrated person
and are worthy of trust; individuals who are able to respond and respect the
accomplishment of others and able to accept their own capabilities and

limitations; individuals who have the ability to receive and give information
objectively and truthfully and stand with the integrity of a whole person.


De La Salle Lipa is committed to the formation of a community of
persons who look at all things with the eyes of faith because they believe that
God is always present in them. A community of persons who become sources of
hope and consolation to others because they are enriched and inspired by the
Word of God and are able to discern the Will of God in the events of their daily
lives. A community of persons trusting in God's Providence and are willing to
serve others and give due respect to others through their care, compassion, and
good will.
De La Salle Lipa further commits itself towards the formation of
individuals who, powered by the Word of God in their lives, are willing to share
their time, talent and treasures with those who have little or none at all, willing
to help without expecting anything in return. Through the power of the
Scripture, De La Salle Lipa seeks to form prophetic individuals who promote
peace and harmony at all costs and renounce violence and injustices in all forms.


De La Salle Lipa is committed to form individuals who utilize their ability
to discriminate between mediocre and superior thought processes. !t forms
individuals who decide responsibly based on critical-analytical assessment of data
through a science-oriented and objective approach. But most important of all, it
forms individuals who are able to integrate these with their experience and move
towards action for the betterment of our common future.

persons that is responsive to the needs of our society, an innovative community
that is practical and relevant in practices yet developmental in its approach
towards solutions and actions.


De La Salle Lipa is committed to the formation of a community of
persons who are loyal and devoted to the country; a community that values its
national heritage and natural resources and seeks a high level of awareness of

our Philippine history and geography. !t seeks to form individuals who value
being a citizen and uses this towards building a nation, promoting peace and
order through their own witnessing as law-abiding, peace-loving and orderly
persons of our society. Nost of all, De La Salle Lipa seeks to develop individuals
who value their country and are willing to put service to their country first over
service to other countries or individuals in our society.


De La Salle Lipa is committed to the formation of a community of
persons who, having a knowledge of the existing realities and conditions of our
society, are sensitive to unjust structures and double standards. !t seeks to
develop individuals who are willing to be liberating agents of change in our
society as an expression of their solidarity with victims of injustice, their
compassion for those who are poor materially and their intellectual giftedness. !t
seeks to form individuals who are willing to be enablers for others because of
their inner conviction - nakikita, nakakadama, may ginagawa."


De La Salle Lipa is committed towards the formation of individuals who
do ordinary things extraordinarily well and are able to bring out the best even in
the most ordinary things that they do. !t forms individuals who have high
motivation, who aim high but are also flexible and well rounded in their
development and outlook towards life. Because of this inner conviction, De La
Salle Lipa seeks to develop individuals who are inspirations for others and who
value the saying, ang pwede na ay hindi pa pwede."

performance. The passing grade is 50 of the total items.

The highest quarterly grade is 98 while the lowest is 68. The passing
grade is 75. However, students caught cheating during quarterly tests will
automatically get a quarterly grade of 65 in the card in the subject and grading
period concerned. Students who cheat during quizzes or long tests shall get zero
(0) on that particular examination. (Refer to the list of offenses and sanctions
for other penalties on cheating.)

certification of illness or other documents, which will serve as acceptable reason
for missing the exams. These documents shall be presented to their respective
Community Noderators. Students who fail to take the quarterly examinations
shall automatically be given a quarterly test grade of 68 in the subject

1. Recent events calls attention to unfortunate incidents resulting from initiation rites
(hazing) conducted in fraternities and sororities. !n some, cases, problems like drug
addiction, vandalism, absenteeism, rumbles and other behaviour problems in elementary
and secondary schools were found to be linked to the presence of andfor the active
membership of some pupilsfstudents in such organizations.
2. Although Department Order No. 6, s. 195+ prohibits hazing in schools and imposes
sanctions for violations, it does not ban fraternitiesfsororities in public and private
secondary schools.
3. Considering that enrolments in elementary and secondary schools are relatively small
and students come from the immediate communities served, the presence of
fraternitiesfsororities which serve as socializing agents among pupilsfstudent-peers is not
deemed necessary. On the other hand, interest clubs and co-curricular organizations like
the Drama Club, Nath Club, Junior Police Organization, and others perform that same
function and in addition develop pupilfstudent potential.
