The Ateneo de Manila University is one of world’s the most exciting communities of leaders and scholars. Nearly 150 years after the Jesuits returned to the Philippines in 1859, the Ateneo has grown into a major Jesuit university whose schools include a college, graduate school, four professional schools, two basic education departments, and an array of research and development centers. Our main campus in Loyola Heights, Quezon City, Metro Manila houses the University's college and graduate, and basic education units, as well as numerous research centers and extension units.The Ateneo Professional Schools Campus in Makati City, houses the University's professional schools of business, law, and information technology. A third campus in Ortigas Center, Pasig City houses the new professional school of medicine and public health. The motto of the Ateneo de Manila University is Lux-in-Domino, “Light in the Lord.” These words from the letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians call us to “live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness, righteousness, and truth.” The Ateneo de Manila is more than an institution of higher learning. The Ateneo commitment is to become light in the world, seeking the truth to illuminate and to serve. This spirit lives in every aspect of our work as a Jesuit and Philippine university.

Church of the Gesu Named after Jesus Christ and the mother church of the Society of Jesus in Rome, the Church of the Gesù is the Ateneo’s architectural gem located at the Sacred Heart Hill, the highest point of the campus. It was designed by Recio + Casas with an unusual and striking exterior and a traditional, airy interior. One side of the Church houses a side chapel dedicated to Mary in the mystery of the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the Ateneo and of the Philippines, while another side chapel is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a devotion committed to the Jesuits by the appearances of Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary at Paray-le-Monial. The Church of the Gesù serves the major religious assemblies of the Ateneo: masses and liturgical events; the Feast of St. Ignatius and similar celebrations, school openings and baccalaureate services, confirmations, first communions and ordinations.
Immaculate Conception Chapel The Immaculate Conception Chapel is the sanctuary of students, faculty, and staff of the Loyola Schools. The chapel’s overall design was inspired by the Chapel of Notre Dame in Haute Saone, France and the St. Ignatius Chapel in the University of Seattle in Washington, U.S.A. On the sanctuary wall, stained glass windows in varying shades of blue and yellow symbolize the Blessed Virgin Mary. On the altar rests fragments from the bones of the Jesuit’s “boy saints” – Aloysius Gonzaga, John Berchmans, and Stanislas Kostka, after whom halls of the Ateneo have been named. The relics were gifts to the new chapel from the Jesuits in Rome. The chapel’s main distinguishing feature is its revolving cross with a crucified Christ on one side and a resurrected Christ on the other. The Focolare Carpentry Shop sculpted the crucified Christ while Fr. Rene Javellana, S.J. worked on the Byzantine-type icon of the resurrected Christ. Other features of the chapel are the Blessed Sacrament room or Adoration Chapel where people can have a more intimate prayer time with God and two reconciliation rooms at either side of the main door of the chapel where people can choose between face to face confession and confession through the screened confessional box.
LST Chapel The LST chapel is conducive to prayer and meditation, as well as for occasional small-group liturgies. The design, courtesy of Jesuit artist Fr. Rene Javellana, S.J., features Florentine glass windows that depict themes of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius through its abstract melding of colors. The chapel proudly contains the low altar that houses a first-class relic of St. Ignatius of Loyola, which was given to LST by Fr. General Peter Hans Kolvenback when he approved construction of the building. Another special feature of the building is the darkened passageway that leads into the special light of the chapel through the name of Jesus.

ADVANCE PLACEMENT PROGRAM Unlike the CEP, assessing a student’s qualification for the Advanced Placement is left to the discretion of the core departments concerned: they may wish to use the results of the Ateneo College Entrance Test, if applicable, or administer a different examination, whether oral or written. They may also confer this status on a student by virtue of his or her having received an excellent mark in the same course from his or her high school. Like the CEP, the Advanced Placement status is given to students who, as a result of a strong secondary education or other forms of formal or non-formal training, have already achieved the learning objectives of particular courses required in the core curriculum. The APP does not exempt the student from a course; the students are asked to replace the course with a more advanced course in the same discipline. This program is designed to help gifted students push further the boundaries of their learning. Courses included in the APP are English 11 (Communication in English I), Foreign Language and Culture (Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Russian, Bahasa Indonesia, Japanese, Korean or Mandarin), and Filipino 11 (Sining ng Pakikipagtalastasan sa Filipino I).

Internship Program Components Basic Orientation Seminar (BOS) During the BOS, interns are trained on human rights issues and laws and equipped with skills needed in human rights advocacy, such as conducting paralegal trainings and handling legal aid cases for indigent clients. Immersion The Immersion phase is a weeklong live-in arrangement with a host family from an identified vulnerable sector. It provides the interns with a concrete experience of living with a marginalized group. Through this, interns learn about the issues affecting vulnerable groups. Internship Proper During the Internship Proper, interns are assigned to human rights groups/ non-government organizations that cater to or deal with issues of workers, peasants, fisherfolk, urban poor, women, children, the environment, indigenous cultural communities, detention prisoners, and migrant workers. Through this, interns are able to learn and apply the law, and in the process, serve those who are in need of access to justice. Evaluation, Planning, Rest, and Recreation The final phase is a culminating activity where the participants reflect on their recent human rights experience and unwind after a long summer. The evaluation is followed by planning sessions, where the new interns are given the opportunity to participate in planning activities that would give them avenues to continue doing human rights work with the Center.
