Culture of Integrity
Three years ago, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, DD, challenged the Catholic faithful in the Philippines to fight the culture of corruption with the culture of integrity. He stressed that we can cultivate this virtue and create this culture by being men and women of our word. We have to walk our talk starting in our families, in our homes and in our schools, he said. We can practice this in our DBA family by being true to our word (“palabra de honor”)...
DBA is Integrity
By giving them education, we strive to equipt our Bosconians with competence. By doing this in an environment of family, we make them gain confidence. Add to these our commitment to form them into men and women of character. DBA turns students into servant-leaders, good Christians and upright citizens. We instill in our youth the love of God, family, community and country.
DBA is Quality
Like the more than two thousand Don Bosco schools in 135 countries world-wide, DBA forms students with a curriculum that is holistic and relevant, in a way that is Catholic and Selesian, with values integration and technology aptness, that is fit for the 21st Century learners. All these we do because like St. John Bosco, our father and founder, we believe in the indispensable importance of young people.
DBA is Family
Don Bosco believes in the Preventive System of education which is based on REASON, RELIGION and RAPPORT. We hone the mind, nourish the soul and affect the heart so Bosconians become the better versions of themselves. We make them live and grow in a family environment where love, compassion and service, rooted in their faith in God and devotion to Mary, Help of Christians, are valued and experienced as family. DBA becomes their second home.
Bosconians play, learn and pray with both their peers and their mentors, thus grow in body, mind, heart and soul. DBA is blessed with a campus that is rich with resources for this -- chapel, classrooms and laboratories, fields, courts, a pool, canteens and cafe, libraries and halls, programs for servant-leadership, Christian living, retreats, youth camps, music, arts and sports development, and the likes.

We touch the heart.
Don Bosco used to adivse the directors of Salesian institutions: “Try to make yourself loved rather than feared” The love that he had in mind was a spiritually mature, impartial, generous,
