Patron Saint

(1556-1648), priest                   

Patron of the UST College of Education and the UST Education High School

Feast Day: August 25

Born in 1556, Joseph grew up in a wealthy family from Aragon. He earned degrees in canon law and theology, and was ordained priest in 1583. When he went to Rome, his heart was moved by the vice and ignorance of the children of the poor. He put aside his career because of his deep concern for their education. He and his companions personally provided a free school for them. The response was overwhelming that there was a constant need for larger facilities to house their effort. Soon, the institute received Papal support. The men who volunteered in this ministry was recognized in 1621 as the Order of Poor Clerics Regular of the Mother of God of the Pious Schools (Piarists). Not long after, Joseph was appointed superior for life.

Prejudices and political ambition caused the institute much turmoil. Joseph’s pedagogical idea of educating every child, his schools for the poor, his support of the heliocentric sciences of Galileo Galilei and his service towards the youth all aroused the opposition of many among the governing classes in society and the ecclesiastical hierarchy. Repeatedly investigated by papal commissions, the Piarists were suppressed. But he never lost hope that one day his religious order would be restored and the poor would be served again through it. Joseph died in 1648 and the Piarists were restored years after. He was beatified by Pope Benedict XIV in 1748, and was canonized by Pope Clement XIII in 1767. Pope Pius XII declared him “Heavenly Patron of all Christian popular schools” in 1948.

Responding to the challenges of the time, St. Joseph Calasanz underscored the importance of the education of the youth. Inspired by their patron, the UST College of Education is engaged in the formation of authentic and mature Christian educators, food technologists, nutritionist-dietitians, and library and information professionals endowed with a sense of social responsibility and a desire for leadership in the spirit of service. Likewise, the Education High School commits itself to the task of participating in the evangelizing work of the Church by providing students with quality Catholic Education and by imbuing them with the virtues of truth and love.

History

The Education High School (EHS) is a separate institution from the UST High School. EHS was established to give quality Catholic education to those deserving students who cannot afford to pay the fees required by other schools. It also serves as the training ground for fourth year BSE students of the College of Education. This laboratory school was established during the time of Rector Magnificus Rev. Fr. Angel De Blas, O.P. through the help of the Dean of the College of Education, Rev. Fr. Aurelio Valbuena and Mrs. Caridad Z. Sevilla, the EHS principal and the different critic teachers of the College of Education. Classes commenced on August 1, 1950.

A number of faculty members from the College comprised the first set of critic teachers for the different subject areas in the EHS. They were: Dr. Mercedes G. Santamaria, Dr. Clemencia J. Colayco, Dr. Rosario D. Bondoc, Miss Concepcion Leonor, Mrs. Antonia P. Villanueva, Miss Consuel Perdices and Miss Nina Custodio.

The first regular teachers were Miss Concepcion Alba, Mrs. Salud P. Belmonte, Mrs. Salome Castillo, Miss Rosario Mauricio, Miss Lourdes Z. Sevilla and Miss Teresita R. Villamil.

There were 361 students in the first enrolment of the EHS. There were ten (10) sections in the first year, two (2) sections for the second year and two (2) sections for the second year and two (2) for the third year. Half of those sections were attended in the morning by girls, half in the afternoon by boys.

In order to give authentic religious and practical leadership training and to strengthen unity and cooperation among the students, religious and secular organizations were founded. Among them were Student Catholic Action Units for the boys and girls and the Knights of Jesus for the Boys. Mr. Arturo De Leon served as their Adviser. The Boy Scouts were adopted to give some training to male students.

Through the years, the EHS has been in the forefront of championing the cause of Catholic education in the Secondary School level. As the University of Santo Tomas enters its 405th Year, the EHS will continue to put premium on developing competence, commitment, and community involvement coupled with the core values of patriotism, respect, piety, responsibility, simplicity, honesty, integrity and justice among its students.
