About JBEC

The JESUIT BASIC EDUCATION COMMISSION (JBEC) is a network of Jesuit schools in the Philippines with a commitment to help one another deepen their Ignatian spirituality and character, improve their academic and formation programs, and to become “schools for others.”

The network has ten official member schools: Ateneo de Manila Grade School and High School (est. 1859), Ateneo de Zamboanga Grade School and High School (est. 1912), Xavier University Grade School and High School (est. 1930), Loyola College Culion High School (est. 1936), Ateneo de Naga High School (est. 1940), Ateneo de Davao Grade School and High School (est. 1948), Sacred Heart School Jesuit / Ateneo de Cebu (est. 1955), Xavier School (est. 1956), Ateneo de Iloilo / Sta. Maria Catholic School (est. 1958), and Xavier School Nuvali (est. 2012).

The JBEC logo has been especially designed to capture the spirit inspired by the 35th General Congregation: We are partners in our mission of basic education, sailing off on this journey to find new FRONTIERS, driven by the FIRE of our passion for our mission (which is a gift from the Holy Spirit), and bound together by our FRIENDSHIP in the Lord.

The present Chairman of JBEC is Fr. Johnny C. Go, SJ, the President of Xavier School San Juan and Nuvali. His assistant is Ms. Jeraldine Ching-Wu.
