Academic center

Centro Escolar "You educate a man; you educate a man.
You educate a woman; you educate a generation."
~ Brigham Young

Centro Escolar University was founded in 1907 by two women, Librada Avelino and Carmen de Luna, who had dreamed of establishing a center of learning for Filipino women. Originally called Centro Escolar de Señoritas, it became a university in 1933. They also educate young men nowadays.

I like the façade's architecture!

Glad to hear they're also educating young men. Young men need all the educating they can get just to try to keep up with the educated young women! :)

It's good to see their dream continues.
