Anchor link label: founder

In his time, St. John Baptist de La Salle created a community of Christian schools throughout France. But what he’s actually done is transform the structure and system of education across four centuries all over the world, a legacy for which he was proclaimed Patron Saint of Teachers.

 

St. La Salle established free schools and formed the community that became known as the Brothers of the Christian Schools. His legacy lives on today, as De La Salle Brothers, assisted by more than 100,000 lay colleagues, teach over 1,000,000 students in 82 countries.

Pierre Romançon was born to a poor peasant family in Auvergne, France. He loved teaching children and spent 40 years in the classroom. He felt a strong desire to be a Lasallian Brother and assumed the name Benilde when he became a follower of John Baptist de La Salle.

 

In acknowledging his achievements, Pope Pius XI said, “Sanctity does not consist in doing extraordinary things, but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.” In October 27, 1967, he was declared a saint.

 

Saint Benilde’s deep faith and zeal encouraged many young men to the priesthood and religious life for which he became known as the patron saint of vocations.

Our Campuses

Taft Campus

When Benilde moved to its own campus on the other side of Taft Avenue in 1989, it meant more than College expansion. Benilde extended its reach to a greater number of non-traditional learners. The Taft Campus houses computer laboratories equipped with the latest software and a high-speed Internet facility to support the academic requirements of Management, Information Technology, Multidisciplinary Studies, and Deaf Education students. Laboratories and studios are designed to stimulate learners to think, discover, and create.

Angelo King International Center

Step inside the Angelo King International Center (AKIC) and enter the real world of the hospitality industry. The College runs industry standard kitchen laboratories and SHRIM hatcheries—Hotel Benilde, Vatel Restaurant, Solomon Guest House, Green Cuisine, Andrew Café and Chef Station—which are training grounds for students to apply what they learn in an actual work environment.

School of Design and Arts

Styled in irregular geometrics, every nook and turn of the School of Design and Arts (SDA) is designed to challenge your creativity. The SDA Campus is one big gallery with hallways that can be converted to exhibition spaces at any given time. It has a museum, theater, black box performance space, cinema, amphitheater, and studios which serve as production and collaboration venues for Benildean students.
