  • History & Memorable Moments

St. Scholastica's College was founded by five young German sisters;Mother M. Ferdinanda Hoelzer, OSB,Sr. Petronilla Keller,Sr. Cresentia Veser,Sr. Winfrieda Mueller and Novice Alexia Ruedenauer on December 3, 1906 at the request of Apostolic Delegate Msgr. Dom Ambrosius Agius, OSB and Archbishop of Manila Jeremiah James Harty, D.D. to give religions education to the poor children of Manila. Archbishop Harty also gave the same request to the Christian Brothers which led to the establishment of De La Salle College in 1911. The site of the St. Scholastica’s College then was a small residential house surrounded by fishermen's huts in the fishing village of Tondo. There were then six paying students and 50 non-paying students or scholars. [1]

A year after the college opened, it moved to another place in San Marcelino Street in Manila where St. Theresa's College used to be and where Adamson University now stands. The school was then housed in an old military barracks. On December 14, 1914 the college was moved again to another site in Singalong Street where the college presently stands. The land, about three hectares was then bought for the amount of two cents per square meter. St. Scholastica's College, along with its neighbor, De La Salle University-Manila, was ravaged by World War II where its school buildings were all destroyed. Reconstruction of the buildings began in 1946 and took nine years to restore. [1]
