Supervisor’s Message

Message from the Supervisor

  • Founded in 1925 by the trailblazing Maryknoll Sisters, Maryknoll Convent School provides all-round, quality and affordable education for girls, empowering them with a thirst for knowledge, a desire for excellence and a heart for service. Guided by our school motto, Sola Nobilitas Virtus (Virtue Alone Ennobles), we seek to liberate our students’ minds from ignorance and their hearts from prejudice.

    At Maryknoll, we hold fast to the belief that every person, formed in the image of God, possesses inherent dignity, her potential waiting to be realized. We cherish the uniqueness of each student and foster an environment that kindles the spirit and encourages self-discovery. Under our teachers' caring and intentional guidance, young women are granted ample freedom to explore, stumble and rise again. In the process, they develop self-esteem, ownership of their learning and an ability to make responsible judgments tempered with compassion for others.

    Our educational philosophy centers around the conviction that the growth of the individual is intertwined with the progress of society. We recognize that individual achievement cannot be pursued in isolation from the development of society as a whole. Thus, we provide an educational experience that raises our students’ awareness of the relevance of their learning and builds a clear sense of purpose.

    Within the embrace of Maryknoll is a sisterhood that celebrates love, respect and shared aspirations. We instill in our students an unwavering spirit of collaboration and mutual support, nurturing their souls to radiate kindness and compassion. As they traverse the transformative journey of adolescence, our young women cultivate a profound understanding of their place in the world.

    Sola Nobilitas Virtus, our school motto, serves as a guiding light, illuminating the way of Maryknoll Convent School and our worldwide community of alumnae, today and into the future.
