Formerly Poveda Learning Centre, the heritage of Saint Pedro Poveda College stems back to 1960 when Institucion Teresiana School was opened. The school first offered kindergarten and primary classes, and began offering preschool, elementary and high school education by 1969. Pedro Poveda's philosophy and principles of education are integrated in the school's Personalized Education Program (PEP). [1]

On December 3, 1974, during the birth centennial celebration of Saint Pedro Poveda, Institucion Teresiana changed its name to Poveda Learning Center as a fitting tribute to him. That same year, UNESCO honored Pedro Poveda as "Humanist and Educator". [1]

Two degree programs in the field of education and business administration are being offered, effective 2005-2006. With the expansion into tertiary education, the name of the school has been changed to Saint Pedro Poveda College. [1]

    • History of Pedro Poveda

Pedro Poveda was born in Linares, Spain on December 3, 1874. After he was ordained priest in Guadix in 1897, he exercised his first apostolic ministry among the poor cave dwellers. He organized a livelihood program for adults and established a school for children. He gave himself to advancement of the poor and marginalized people. [1]

In 1906, he was assigned as Canon in Marian Sanctuary of Covadonga. While in Covadonga, he became aware of the importance of education, so he dedicated himself to solving the problems that confronted Christian education at that time. [1]

When the Civil War broke out, he was identified as an enemy by those who wished to dechristianize the schools and, on July 28, 1936, he was shot to death. Pedro Poveda was beatified by Pope John Paul II at St. Peter's Basilica on October 10, 1993. [1]
