GBSEALD aims to help elevate education through the formation of educators, educational leaders, policy makers and other learning professionals. Envisioned to be a center of excellence and leadership in education, especially in Science, Math, Reading and Writing, it seeks to be able to contribute in improving educational policy and practice through its graduates.
Reimagining what needs to be new in education
Despite the challenges of the Covid-19 Pandemic, these past years have also been fruitful in pushing the boundaries of education as GBF and Ateneo launched the 5th Loyola School, GBSEALD, in 2021. This strategic partnership between the two institutions promises to make a lasting impact on Philippine education.
The school was named in recognition of GBF’s significant donation to establish the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation Endowment for Educational Innovation. The endowment is established in honor of the brothers John, Henry, Johnson, and James, the founders of the GBF.
This new School of Education and Learning Design exemplifies Ateneo de Manila’s commitment to Philippine education guided by the Ten Principles of Learning, Teaching, and Formation. As their motto put it best: “Bago ang lahat, edukasyon!”
