Colegio de Santa Catalina for girls used to stand next to Letran College in Intramuros Manila
& It was ruin by WWII.

Quote:
Once located between Calle Beaterio and Calle San Juan de Letran in Intramuros, the Beaterio y Colegio de Santa Catalina de Sena, established as a beaterio by Ven. Mother Francisca del Espiritu Santo and friends in 1696 in their intention of dedicating their time to prayer, charity, and social service. It was the same year where the tertiaries made their vows in the beaterio. Stated in the constitution that the beatas were to serve God and to medicate the rosary daily. In the foundation documents of the institution, only fifteen female choir members of Spanish blood can only be admitted into the beaterio in honor of the fifteen mysteries of the Holy Rosary. In 1699, five native women were accommodated as Hermanas de la Obediencia (Sisters of Obedience).

In 1706, a college for all females was established and was placed under the title of royal patronage in 1716. Around the mid 1800s, it became the College of Note and later into a Normal School of Teachers. In 1863, it was granted to offer teacher training.

In 1941, the building was destroyed by the Japanese bombing. The building was abandoned and was acquired by the Colegio de San Juan de Letran for its expansion. The tertiaries transferred the institution to Sampaloc and later to Quezon city. The Beaterio was reorganized and changed its name as the Congregation of Dominican Sisters of Saint Catherine of Siena. While the college shortened its name to Siena College and expanded to provide education to both males and females of all grade levels.

I guess 1926.

Centro Escolar University or originally called Centro Escolar de Señoritas
built in 1907 in Manila.





Adamson University is an 80 plus year old University but the Architechture looks
like from the 18th century. It was built in 1932 so few years before the WWII.



It was a greek immigrant who actually built this school and His name is George Lucas Adamson. Another Catholic University.

I don't understand if it was built by a Spanish congregation, why did they have to change the name for English ? It sounds way better in Spanish. My school has a Spanish name and it's even very long " Colegio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus " yet they never change it for English .

After the Philippines became an American Commonwealth, the Americans sought to reduce the Spanish influence in the Philippines.

Yes the Americans really tried to remove the Spanish influence when they took over. Too bad, if they didn't do it, Philippines could have been a bilingual country like Puerto Rico speaking 2 of the most important languages in the world.
We cannot even read the famous novels of our National Hero and Author Jose Rizal if not translated because his original works were in Spanish as well as some important old documents about the Philippines and the original Philippine Anthem.
What's worst, the Americans made the Spanish look so bad to the Filipino people in our History books.

Concordia College originally called Colegio de la Inmaculada Concepcion de la Concordia
established in 1868

Quote:
is a Catholic school institution of learning located in Pedro Gil, Paco, Manila, in the Philippines. The college was founded in 1868 and is run by Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul. Concordia College prospered towards the end of the nineteenth century with an upward enrollment. Among its well-known students were Saturmina, Soledad and Olympia, sisters of Philippine National Hero, Jose Rizal, and his two loves - Segunda Katigbak and Leonor Rivera - the latter immortalized in his novelas as Maria Clara.

Colegio de la Inmaculada Concepcion de la Concordia was founded by a Doña Margarita Roxas de Ayala when she converted her three-and-a-half hectare villa, the La Concordia Estate in Paco, Manila, into a school.

Attracted by the dedication and devotion of the Daughters of Charity, who taught and cared for the poor, the patron did not hesitate to request for eight Daughters of Charity from Spain. She arranged for the Sister's travel expenses so that they could come over to the Philippines and manage the school.

On May 3, 1868, the first eight Sisters arrived and managed the operation of the school; the school was a free school, Escuela Pia. With a small enrollment of sixty students, the curriculum emphasized religion, good manners, reading and writing, simple arithmetic, culture and arts like sewing, embroidery, cooking, needlecraft and household work. The medium of the instruction was Spanish.

However, significant periods in the development of the Concordia College, such as the Philippine Revolution of 1896 and the American era, to name a few, brought about educational reforms as can be seen in the following historical dates.

This is how it used to be during the 18th century

I think one of the above pictures that was supposedly taken in the 18th century (1700-1799) should actually be labeled the 19th century (1800-1899) because photography did not exist in the 18th century.
