About the Provider
St. Scholastica’s College Manila (SSC Manila) is a Catholic Women’s College founded in 1906 by the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing, Germany. It offers holistic Benedictine education for Basic Education, College, and Graduate levels, with its School of Music being recognized by CHED as a Center of Excellence for Music Education.
The history of St. Scholastica's College Manila began when the first five German Sisters of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing arrived in the Philippines.
With the spirit of faith and a burning zeal for missionary service, the five Benedictine sisters led by Mother Ferdinanda Hoelzer as Sister Prioress together with Sister Petronilla Keller, Crescentia Veser, Winfrieda Mueller, and novice Alexia Ruedenauer, embraced their mission of nourishing the Catholic faith through God’s word.
