Welcome back CICians! Welcome Home!
As we gather once again in the spirit of learning, growth, and faith, it is with great joy and anticipation that we embark on this new academic journey together. We extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to both familiar faces and new community members.
At the College of the Immaculate Conception, we stand united in our commitment to academic excellence and spiritual development. Our mission is not only to impart knowledge but also to nurture compassionate, resilient, responsible, and well-rounded individuals who will positively impact the community.
As a Catholic institution, we are guided by our core values of Christ Centeredness, Excellence, Innovativeness, Integrity, and Resiliency. We encourage everyone to embrace diversity and cherish the unique gifts each individual brings to our community.
This school year 2023-2024 promises to be filled with exciting opportunities for personal and academic growth. Our dedicated faculty and staff have prepared engaging courses and enriching extracurricular activities to help you explore your passions and talents.
CIC RethinkED continues to reimagine how education is delivered, what it should achieve, and how it can best meet the needs of learners in the 21st century. The goal of rethinking education is to create a more effective, relevant, and inclusive learning experience for learners.
CIC RethinkED explores and implements new ideas, methods, and approaches to transform the traditional education system. It involves critically examining the existing educational practices and considering innovative ways to improve learning outcomes, engagement, and relevance for students in the now normal.
Let us approach this year with an open heart and a curious mind. Embrace the opportunities that come your way, for they will shape you into stronger individuals. Cherish the friendships you form, as they will become pillars of support and companionship throughout your journey.
As we set forth on this shared path, may we find inspiration and guidance in our faith. Let us remember the example of our Patroness, the Immaculate Conception, who exemplifies purity of heart and devotion to God. May her intercession accompany us and guide us throughout this year.
Let us be a community that radiates warmth, kindness, and empathy. Together, we can create a place where everyone feels valued, included, and loved.
Once again, welcome back to CIC. Our Home! May this year be one of growth, learning, and blessings for us all.
Fr. Joseph B. Azarcon
