Calamba Canossa Academy

CALAMBA Canossa Academy, formerly known as Mater Dei  is the first Catholic School in Calamba, Laguna, offering Pre-Elementary, Grade School and High School Education for boys and girls.  Its foundation in 1964 was  a response to the request of the late Archbishop Alejandro Olalia to open a school in Calamba due to the insistent request made by a group of Catholic women residing in the town. To respond to the emerging needs of the poor in the locality, Canossa Alay Pag-ibig Center was opened in 1985.  It aims to serve the poor and the needy through literacy programs, medical assistance, income generating projects and skills training along with the integral Christian formation.  It also provides opportunities for pupils to have active involvement in being in solidarity with the poor through different outreach activities.   Both the Elementary and High School Departments are Level II PAASCU accredited  in its effort to attain its vision and mission to form the heart of the young through quality education in the spirit of St. Magdalene of Canossa.


Today, the school is close to its golden year.  The Canossian Sisters together with the lay teacher and staffs continue to carry out the aims of St. Magdalene of Canossa,  giving priority to educational efforts geared to the formation of the young into authentic Christian Persons Sharers of God’s love.


Calamba Community is also home to our Postulants. Help us support their formation.
