Males are now welcome to enroll in St. Bridget School in Quezon City, straying away from the long-kept tradition of exclusivity for girls that it is known for.

This is one of the changes that the Religious of the Good Shepherd-run school in its K-12 program has introduced this school year.

Sr. Mary Susan Montano, head of the RGS Province of Philippines and Japan, said the decision will allow the school “to be more responsive to the call of the times”.

The learning institution traces its roots to the foundation of St. Domitilla’s School established in 1921.

“One hundred years later, we will open our doors to offer inclusive quality Catholic education to all Filipino youth regardless of gender, social status, and other differences,” Montano said.

The gradual transition, she said, will be implemented by utilizing the school’s online learning platform for their current students to interact with their new male classmates before face-to-face classes.

“With this landmark decision, we envision St. Bridget School to be a leader in inclusive private Catholic education where every gender is nurtured and grows as confident, competent, compassionate Filipino able to meet the challenges of today’s fast changing world,” Montano said.
