Assumption Antipolo (Abbreviation: AA) located in the city of Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines, is a private, Catholic, college preparatory school for girls.


The Congregation of the Religious of the Assumption was founded in Paris on the 30th of April 1839, by Saint Marie Eugenie Milleret de Brou (1817-1898).


The Religious of the Assumption first came to the Philippines in 1892. At the request of Queen Maria Cristina of Spain, they established the Superior Normal School for Women Teachers in Intramuros in 1892 which pioneered women education in the Philippines. Among its first and only graduates were Rosa Sevilla de Alvero, Foundress of the Instituto de Mujeres; Librada Avelino and Carmen de Luna, who founded Centro Escolar University. At the outbreak of the Revolution of 1898 the operation of the school was abruptly stopped and the Sisters returned to Europe.

At the special request of St. Pius X, a group of English-speaking Assumption Sisters returned to Manila in 1904. With the group of Sisters were Mother Helen Margaret as Superior, and Mother Rosa Maria who subsequently spent sixty-one of her seventy years of religious life in the Religious of the Assumption in the Far East. The Sisters opened the Assumption Convent in Herran-Dakota, Malate, as an elementary and secondary school. A College Department was added in 1940.

World War II destroyed practically the whole school as buildings were razed to the ground in the liberation of Manila in 1945. Classes resumed in quonset huts and in a battered auditorium in Herran. Mother Rosa Maria's unfailing courage and confidence brought Assumption Manila back to its feet and relaunched it towards even broader perspectives. In 1947 reconstruction began and the College reopened in 1948.

In 1958, the sisters opened Assumption San Lorenzo in Makati to ease the ever-increasing student population on all levels. The College was moved there in 1959.

"From Herran to Antipolo"

After some time, the Herran site was sold as the area was becoming a commercial center in a tourist belt and was no longer conducive to learning. In 1972-73, four of the San Lorenzo teachers were transferred to pave the way for merging elementary schools and secondary schools of Herran and San Lorenzo. In 1973-74, the Herran and San Lorenzo schools fused: the High School and the College were based in San Lorenzo while the Preschool and Grade School briefly occupied Herran, then temporarily moved to San Lorenzo in June, 1974. Finally the Grade School settled in Antipolo along Sumulong Highway on September 11, 1974. The Preschool stayed with the High School and College of San Lorenzo. However the distance between Antipolo and Manila became a constant to many parents who wanted Assumption education for their children. The persistent appeal of the alumnae and parents to re-open the elementary level in San Lorenzo was heeded. Grade 1 was re-opened in 1981 and starting school year 1988-89 grade levels were added until the San Lorenzo Grade School graduated its first Grade 7 students in March 1993.

Assumption Antipolo, on the other hand, had its Preschool, to which it added a Kinder level in 1984. A High School was opened for First Year in school year 1987-88. The High School completed its four levels and had its first commencement exercises in March 1991.

The Antipolo school site also houses a Center for Service and Sharing (CSS), two Retreat houses for spiritual and social formation, the office of the Philippine Council for Peace and Global Education and PACEM that maintains an Ecology Park. With the completion of the basic education department and the stability of the school as an institution, AA became a corporation on its own in June 1997.

"Response to the Church"

In line with the spirit of Vatican II, and in response to the call of the Church in the Second Plenary Council of the Philippines and the needs of the country, the Assumption in the Philippines has moved towards the rural areas and the under-privileged sector, without abandoning the education of the upper/middle classes. The majority of its schools, campus ministries, and community development works are now among farmers, tribal minorities, and the urban poor.

Through formal and non-formal education, Assumption seeks to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor and works for the young, the poor, and the laity so that all may be leaven and agents of Christian social change.
