The educational philosophy of PAREF Schools is inspired by the teachings of St. Josemaria Escriva on two main ideas – (1) integral education; and (2) parents as the primary character educators of their children.
Integral education develops a child into a well-rounded individual by forming all aspects of his person—the physical, social, intellectual, moral, and spiritual—in an atmosphere of love for the truth as well as respect for the dignity and freedom of the person.
The education of children is, first and foremost, the responsibility of parents. Therefore, collaboration and partnership between the school and the home are essential to ensure the student’s holistic development that helps him achieve his potential and direct him towards doing good.
The PAREF System is now a big family with fifteen schools. With PAREF’s existence spanning more than four decades, we have graduated more than 8,000 students; most of whom are already engaged in the world of work. These are the people whose lives we have touched; whose minds and hearts we hope to continue to positively transform society from within.
