January 9, 1905, the new school opened with 30 girls ( 15 of whom were aged 15 to 20), four of them boarders, and six boys. Children, women, and young men came to the school for religious instruction. Besides the regular academic courses, there were supplementary ones in music, drawing, painting, French, sewing, and embroidery. The medium of instruction was English. However, since the americans had been in the Philippines only Five years, very few pupils were acquainted with the language. Hence, the Sisters were obliged to lean Visayan and Spanish to be able to communicate with their charges.
The High School Department opened in 1920. The first high school graduation took place in 1925.

St. Paul, our father and our model, obtain for us the heart of an apostle, a heart big as the world. Give us your ardent zeal for the glory of God.
May our life be consumed after your example in the midst of work and of fatigue, even through sufferings and trials of all kinds.
Help us to respond with joy and generosity to the call of God, to make Him known and loved. Obtain for us your burning love for Jesus Christ, who has made of you another Christ. May the Lord live in us as he live in you, for the glory of the Trinity and the salvation of the world. Amen.
