Infant Jesus Academy is located at the historical municipality of Silang, Cavite Philippines.


The Infant Jesus Academy was established on June 4, 1945 by the Missionary Canonesses of St. Augustine now known as the Immaculati Cordis Mariae. The missionary was formally invited by Fr. Michael Donoher, the former parish priest of Silang, Cavite. Fr. Michael believed that education is a good way of spreading the words of the Lord. When the people of Silang requested to the priest that they wanted to have a highschool in their municipality after the Japanese invasion of the Philippines Fr. Michael convinced the nuns to run the first Catholic school in Silang. When the orphanage of the Infant Jesus in Tondo was destroyed, the orphanage transferred to Silang, Cavite by the invitation of the Parish Priest.

With 100 orphans, five nuns they stayed at the old convent of Silang. The nuns are Mother Donatiana, Mother Leonce, Mother Adeltrude, Mother Estelle and Mother Damascene.

The opening of the Infant Jesus Academy with first and second year highschool was opened for both male and female students.

In 1956, a building was constructed with four classrooms. It was followed by the second, third, and fourth buildings until it reached 25 classrooms, 3 counselling rooms, 2 laboratory rooms, 3 offices, a clinic, a faculty room, a chapel, a canteen and a library

In the years 2005 to 2007, 2 fully air conditioned computer rooms were built, the so called “little baguio” was transformed into a huge gymnasium that was used for school and activities.

On the 60th founding anniversary the ICM Sisters transferred the authority and the management to the Diocese of Imus.
