Students learn through individual and group activities supported by non-academic programs such as clubs, field trips, and outreach activities.

It is MCLS goal to produce students who are academically excellent, whose values are anchored on the school’s very own of Truth, Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation.

Why Choose MC Lower School?


  • Effective Communication

    We encourage students to speak their minds and discuss ideas. Our Language and FIlipino classes are taught this way. We understand that language is purposeful, so we use them in context.

  • Leadership Training

    We give students opportunities to become leaders as class and club officers. We have a Council of Leaders which is our version of student government. Potential leaders undergo workshops and seminars to equip them with leadership skills.

  • Heart for Service

    We have an outreach program called Kapitbahay that gives us a chance to interact with children from our partner communities. Can you imagine going on a field trip and doing outreach at the same time? At MCLS, we do just that!

  • S.T.E.M.

    We expose our students to activities that make us enjoy the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). We also have a Robotics Camp where our students apply what they learn in science, mathematics, and computer lessons.
