Vision, Mission and Core Values


St. Joseph’s Academy, the home of the world-famous Bamboo Organ, is the oldest Catholic educational institution in the Diocese of Parañaque. It envisions itself to be the center for integral faith formation, academic excellence and servant-leadership for the members of the school community. Inspired by St. Joseph, its patron, it seeks to develop socially responsible and just Christian achievers for God and Nation.


With the given vision, we commit ourselves to: 

1. live up to the original intent of its founders as partner of evangelization and the promotion of Basic Ecclesial Community (BEC) as a way of life. 

2. develop the core competencies of its personnel and stakeholders and to provide a well-balanced and challenging curriculum in the pursuit of excellence. 

3. mold its members to be agents of change who are actively involved in the social, moral and political issues affecting society and its environment. 

4. promote the local culture and heritage.
