ICA aims to raise the social consciousness and social responsibility of the administrators, faculty and staff, parents and students by creating programs that are developmental and holistic in nature.Thus, its Community Service and Development Program (CSDP) aims to develop among the various members of the academic community, especially the students, a deep social awareness and consciousness that would empower them to become agents of social change. To better create a transformative culture for the students, ICA implemented in the year 2005 the Catholic schools’ Transformative Education (TEd) which focuses on Environment, Gender Sensitivity, Political, and Justice and Peace Education. ICA upholds the goal of TEd to form students to become integrated and wholistic, analytical and critical thinkers, socially oriented, gender sensitive, environmental friendly, politically mature, transformative leaders and concern for others and the rest of creation.
