The Social Involvement Office is tasked to design, implement and evaluate the Social Involvement Program of Sacred Heart School – Ateneo de Cebu. As a Jesuit school, SHS-AdC firmly believes that student-formation is geared towards finding God in all things. In this light, the social involvement activities of the institution are designed to heighten social formation that seek to imbibe among students the core values of the school particularly compassion.
Through outreach and various community engagement activities, SHS-AdC commits to its share of gradually transforming society in the spirit of the Ignatian ideal of Magis. Thus, an Ateneo-Hearter is an academically excellent person who also has the passion to lead and the heart to love and serve others especially those who are marginalized.
The Social Involvement Program includes but is not limited to school-community relations (with students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni), social action and social awareness activities as well as community-based projects in the light of the school’s thrust as articulated in its Vision-Mission.
I invite all students, faculty and staff, parents and alumni of Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu to actively participate in the school’s social involvement activities. In this special Jubilee Year of Mercy may we “look forward to the experience of opening our hearts to those living on the outermost fringes of society: fringes modern society itself creates” (Misericordiae Vultus, 15).
