Saint Pedro Poveda College
Pedro Poveda’s philosophy of education is integrated in the school’s Personalized Education method, which has been implemented ever since it began. On December 3, 1974, the birth centennial of Pedro Poveda, Institución Teresiana School changed its name to POVEDA LEARNING CENTRE as a tribute to him. That same year, UNESCO honored Pedro Poveda as “Humanist and Educator.”
In the late 60s and early 70s, it then offered Preschool, Elementary and High School Education. The first batch in High School graduated in 1971.
