SPAC is a holistic training ground for excellence that will mold and nurture the youth to excel for Christ.

In this school we were trained to gain true wisdom and knowledge. To achieve great things and to survive hardships and be successful in defeating trials, make God as your guide and light and put your ALL in ALL to Him.

Aim and Achieve!

Soli deo Gloria.

“SPAC leads me the way to see the world of Success. I can never forget the things that I learned from this school. SPAC imparted so much to me in all aspects of life – mental to spiritual. I remember the inspiring words of my teachers that triggered my interest in computer programming and the challenge  they gave in order for me to go to the limits of my intellectual endurance, especially in the field of Information Technology. I now believe that behind every man’s success is someone’s hand you can never forget. So, thank you SPAC.”

My memory accords my high school years, the distinction of being among the happiest phases of my life. I remember SMA in that light.
The academic standards were superb. Various extra-curricular opportunities were experienced in this dynamic campus where I served as one of its student leaders during my time.
I appreciated the chance it gave me to hone my humble musical skills by constant exposures to church programs and concert performances, being one of the original members and pianists of the Southern Minstrels in the early 80’s. These taught me solid learning foundation, instilled discipline and confidence which positively prepared me for my eventual medical career.
My gratitude goes to the dedicated teachers and mentors whom I have had the honor to learn from. I commend this Christian institution which remains to be awesome with its legacy in “character-building education” that SMA has provided me in the past and SPAC to continue to “nurture holistic excellence” for generations to come.

It’s more than 10 years since I graduated. SPAC was the place where I honed, more than anything else, my leadership capabilities. Yes, good grades were a great plus but SPAC was the ground I started to become a well-rounded individual, which I believe a very important asset when you try to make a dent in the world! During my 4 years stint, God had given me a chance to serve as the CSG president, Batch president, Collage EIC and more. It warms my heart being in the real world and to look back to where I came from and say, “Man! I am an SPAC Alumnus!”


Wherever God will lead my life and my family, I always feel indebted to all the professors that God has placed in SPAC to mold my mind, my character and my spirit. I pray that God will continue to make our school a place “to make ready a people for the Second Coming of Jesus.” I am proud of SPAC, and I am a proud SPACian!

South Philippine Adventist College has been the best training ground for me both professionally and spiritually. SPAC provided me all the best venues for me to develop both my IT skills and my communication skills. When I was in the second year of my Computer Science degree, I was offered to join Collage Magazine, the official student publication of SPAC, as an Associate Editor. But here’s the catch though. I need to do the whole Graphic and Layout Design for the Magazine. So basically, they wanted me to be the Associate Editor and the Graphic and Layout Artist as well. Because at that time, I was also starting to study graphic design using Photoshop, so I accepted the challenge to join the Student Magazine team.Continue Reading

“Everything happens for a purpose”, is what my heart always tells me. After I graduated from high school, my parents told me that they could not support me (financially) in college (My father is a farmer and my mother is a housewife). I told them that I still wanted to pursue college though I would be a working student. So, my parents brought me to South Philippine Adventist College (2005).

“Studying at SPAC (South Philippine Adventist College) was something I never expected to do. My dad had brought me along one summer on one of his visits to SPAC. On the 8-hour way back home, he popped the question. “Would you like to transfer and study BS Computer Science at SPAC?”. To this day, I cannot recall what made me say “yes.” But I’m glad I did.Continue Reading
