Since counseling is an integral part of the Ateneo educational process, the Student
Development Center (SDC) offers services and developmental programs to facilitate the
development of personal skills of pupils toward holistic well-being. To ensure the
realization of the school's vision-mission to develop pupils who are Christ-centered,
compassionate, competent, committed and to become leaders with conscience and to become
"a fire that enkindle other fire", the counselors handle pupils with academic difficulties,
student leaders, athletes, students living away from home, students whose parents work abroad,
etc., that will address specific needs and concerns unique to pupils.
