Athletics Program

Sports and Athletics is an integral part of the Student Development Program of Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS. It aims to develop student-athletes who excel in the various athletic events and will represent the school in local, national, and international sports tournaments. Like all other areas of formation, Sports and Athletics follow the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm as a way of developing student athletes. Training in the various athletic and sports events is geared towards the development of the 7C’s – Christ-centeredness, Compassion, Character, Culture, Conscience, Competence, and Community. Winning in tournaments and competitions is not the end all and be all of the program but a result of student athletes being formed in the tradition of excellence, loving service, and magis for the greater glory of God.

The Athletics Program has the following objectives:

  1. to develop and share among student athletes, coaches and others Ignatian values, education and leadership skills;
  2. to promote the active participation by all student athletes in fun and healthy physical activities according to their interests and abilities;
  3. to develop positive attributes among athletes including healthier lifestyles, self-esteem, fair play and good citizenship; and
  4. to integrate the school’s Vision and Mission thru sports.

ADI-SMCS has  institutional programs for the following sports:

  1. Badminton Boys and Girls
  2. Basketball Boys
  3. Chess Boys and Girls
  4. Football Boys
  5. Swimming Boys and Girls
  6. Taekwondo Boys and Girls
  7. Volleyball Girls

 

 

Learning Cycles and Grading Periods

ADI-SMCS employs a 6-day learning cycle for Prep and Kinder up to Grade 10.  Program of studies are spread over 6 days (not including Saturday and Sunday) in one learning cycle instead of the standard five days or Monday to Friday learning cycle. This allows for a shorter number of subjects to be taken within a day such that the learners are able to explore individual learning and other activities. Since the Philippines is often visited by typhoons, class suspensions are inevitable. The 6-day learning cycle allows for proper adjustment of days so that no subject is missed whenever a school day is cancelled. 

A trimestral system or a school year with three grading period is implemented from Prep up to Grade 10. 

The Senior High School (Grades 11 - 12) follows the usual Monday to Friday schedule using a semestral system.
