About the Provider
San Sebastian College – Recoletos, Manila, is a Catholic Institution of higher learning, duly recognized by the Philippine Government. One of the seven “Recollect” schools in the Philippines, it is owned and operated by the Augustinian Recollect Fathers. Elegantly couched right in the heart of Manila (along CM Recto Avenue and a few meters from bustling Quiapo). San Sebastian, first, accepted 80 students until the Second World War. Afterwards, San Sebastian College was established in 1947 as an exclusive boys’ school with initial offerings in the Elementary and High School levels, as well as the Institute of Liberal Arts in College, consisting of 200 pupils and students. In 1953, the Institutes of Commerce and Law were opened. Subsequently, several other course offerings and specializations were consecutively added—a two-year Secretarial course in 1972, Banking and Finance in 1974, and finally graduate programs in MBA and MA Theological Studies in 1976. The Institute of
Graduate Studies also offered the MBA program in 1976 for those who want to be in a business industry. Back in 1972, co-education was initially started when the first batch of female students was admitted to the Secretarial Course. A year later, the entire college, along with the elementary and high school departments readily began accepting female students. Then, the high school department of San Sebastian College made a decision to admit female students in all department levels that started in 1986.
