The Achievements of our Alumni Reflect the Quality of our Education
Our educational philosophy is founded on the belief that every child is a valuable contributor to society and as such, must be developed to attain his or her potential given the unique talents and abilities that he or she possesses. Bearing this in mind, we provide our students with a learning environment akin to the needs of the 21st century learner.
We recognize that the home is where the child first learns and acquires the discipline to pursue aspirations with passion and endless curiousity. For this reason, we endeavor to foster collaborative relations between the home and the school in educating the total person: mind, body, heart and soul.
Since 1987, St. Mark has consistently endeavored to produce some of the best graduates this province had to offer by providing learning experiences that are at par with the best schools in the country. This is evidenced by the growing number of our graduates who have gained success after completing their basic education at the Cavite School of St. Mark.

It is a program provided for by Republic Act 8545 (amending R.A. 6728), or the “Expanded Government Assistance to Students and Teachers in Private Education, or GASTPE whose main objective was to decongest public secondary schools by “contracting” the excess capacities of private high schools through the provision of subsidies for students who, otherwise, would have gone to the public high schools.
CSSM has been awarded several grants for grade 7 that will be allocated according to the student family's financial need and academic capabilities. Priority will be given to students who present a proof of lack of financial capability and a general average of at least 82%.
Successful grantees will continue to receive the same privilege until reaching grade 10 and for as long as they study in an ESC accredited school.
