ICA believes that…

• God is our loving Father/Mother, the source of all that we are and all that we have.

• Every person, being an image of God, is endowed with potentials and powers especially the capacity to seek the truth and love the good.

• A person who is grateful for his/her gifts nurtures and shares these for the well-being of others; the greatest of these gifts is Jesus Christ – the Good News Himself.

• As a steward of creation, every person respects, develops and uses creation as God intended it.

• Education is the process that leads every person towards his/her integral development which can best be realized in an open and trusting Christian community.

• Mary, our Immaculate Mother, is the model of faith, excellence, and service.


ICA is a Catholic educational institution established by the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Conception (M.I.C.) in 1936. The school community, with a distinct Chinese Filipino character is rooted in Jesus Christ and inspired by Mary’s example of discipleship and Venerable Délia Tétreault’s spirituality of thanksgiving.


A woman of faith, excellence, and service

Witnessing, in joyful thanksgiving, to the Good News – Jesus Christ

To all people, particularly the Chinese Filipinos.


To provide quality Catholic education to form women leaders who actively participate in building a
just and peaceful society.


ICA is an educational institution for girls, which is CATHOLIC and COLLEGE PREPARATORY with a distinct, CHINESE-FILIPINO character.


It is a CATHOLIC SCHOOL, which offers an educational program guided by Catholic beliefs and doctrines. Its religious practices, liturgies and other acts of worship are Catholic. The values it inculcates are Gospel-centered, and the thrust of individual formation it undertakes is Catholic in orientation. Foremost among ICA’s concerns is cultivating and nurturing in the students as well as in the faculty and staff, a lively Faith in Jesus Christ. As TRUE CHRISTIANS, they will endeavor to build a community of faith in school, at home, and within the larger community which is the Catholic Church. Eventually they will spread the Good News-Christ.


It is a COLLEGE PREPARATORY SCHOOL whose educational program is geared towards the development of the necessary skills, attitudes, values and proper study habits that are characteristic of a COMPETENT STUDENT. This student, imbued with a sense of excellence is self-reliant, possesses a life-long love for learning and is adequately equipped to cope with a fast changing society and the continuing demands of higher education.


It is a FILIPINO SCHOOL whose educational program aims to inculcate a sound and balanced nationalism in the students and develop in them the qualities of a COMMITTED CITIZEN – appreciative of her Filipino cultural heritage, loyal to the Filipino nation, and actively involved in the building of a truly Christian Philippine Society where harmony, justice and peace prevail.


Owing to the distinct heritage of its students, ICA aims to foster in them an appreciation of their Chinese cultural traditions and help them integrate these with the Filipino traditions.


With the Blessed Mother as its patroness, ICA strives to develop in the students the tender yet firm disposition and the joyful and grateful attitude of Mary towards all that she has received. Endowed with these Marian qualities, a cultured and refined ICAN exhibits preference for the good, true and beautiful, manifests humility about the gifts she possesses and generously shares these with others in need; chooses what is clean and decent, what is pure and just, what is elegant yet simple. She accepts her role as a woman and exudes femininity in taste and ways that are warm, sincere and caring. Through her thoughts and actions, she promotes and sustains the best that simplicity, unity, harmony and peace bring.


We bear the name of Mary, the Immaculate Conception, so we look up to her, as our model of a “woman of faith, excellence, and service”, especially as shown in her Ecce-Fiat-Magnificat.

As a woman of Faith, an ICAn has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and lives to be Christ to others.

As a woman of Excellence, an ICAn does all things well to be the best version of herself for God and society.

As a woman of Service, an ICAn takes action to bring about social transformation and development.
