History of St. James Catholic School of Morong

The former Roman Catholic Bishop of Balanga, Most Rev. Socrates B. Villegas, with the end in mind that "Every Catholic in Bataan, a "HERO" where H stands for holiness, E for Evangelization, R for relationship of love, and O for openness to receive and to give, conceived of St. James Catholic School of Morong to be a vehicle for the Christian faithful of Morong, Bataan. Holiness is learned and lived by when there is relationship of love, there is always that openness to receive God’s love and grace and is then given; out of the abundance of the heart, one gives. These all happen in the evangelization process. And this is where St. James Catholic School of Morong sees itself; Schola caritatis, schola virtutis, schola sanctitatis- a school of love, a school of virtues, a school of holiness.

The school is run and administered by the Diocese of Balanga and a member of the Diocese Schools of Bataan (DSOB). As a Diocesan School, it operates in line with a vision-mission of Diocese. It is located in the Our Lady of the Pillar Parish because according to the Christian Tradition, Our Lady appeared to him and gave him the assurance that she would always be a pillar for him in times of difficulties. It opened and serviced the people of God in Morong 2008.
