The Ateneo de Zamboanga University Grade School aims for the total formation of each pupil. The educational programs thrust is the development of the physical, intellectual, social, moral and spiritual formation of each individual.

The Ateneo spirit soars with Ignatian ideals and principles. This community of dedicated men and women in one way or another keeps the covenant of services as top priority in its list of concerns. This community is committed to academic excellence and undying preferential love for the poor and genuine witness to justice in the service of the faith for the greater glory of God and Country – PRO DEO ET PATRIA.

The very core of social action work centers on service and concern for the poor, which is congruent with the objective of this institution. It aims to reach out to people in need. It stresses the significance of internalizing values learned. All these are hoped to be achieved through the following objectives:

  1. to serve with the faith that does justice
  2. to form boys and girls for others
  3. to develop in each individual a great and genuine love for the poor
