145 Years of Ateneo de Manila Service and Excellence
As it was in the Spanish Ateneo and the American Ateneo, so it is in today’s Ateneo: the fundamental values of excellence and service remain at the core of the Ateneo spirit. As a Jesuit University, the Ateneo pursues the goals of Jesuit education through the harmonious development of moral and intellectual virtues:
Lux in Domino: Light in the Lord. The Ateneo aims to lead its students to see God in all things and to use their talents for the greater glory of God and the greater service of humanity.
Magis: ever striving for the more. The Ateneo seeks to instill in its students a passion for disciplined excellence and a constant desire to be better, to do better.
Cura personalis: care and concern for the whole person. The Ateneo sees its student’s in their totality and nurtures each one holistically.
Men and women for others. The Ateneo strives to imbue its students with love for and service to others.
