St. Scholastica's Academy, San Fernando

The St. Scholastica's Academy or "St. Scho" is a private school run by the Benedictine Sisters in the Philippines. St. Scholastica's Academy of Pampanga is the third Benedictine school established in the Philippines. Known as the Assumption Academy, it was established in June 1925 in the house of the Singian family; the high school department was added in school year 1926-27. In March 1930, the first secondary graduates of the Assumption Academy were presented; the Alumni/Alumnae and present students of this school include sons/daughters and granddaughters/son of businessmen and prominent figures in Pampanga. Due to the large number of enrollees, the zeal of its biggest benefactor, Monsignor Prudencio David, the school was relocated to its second site in 1931, ownership of the school was passed on to the Benedictine Sisters in 1938. With the outbreak of World War II, the building was used as a military hospital. In 1966, the school was renamed St. Scholastica's Academy of Pampanga; the school was transferred to a bigger site in 1972.

This school is for girls only but, due to the clamor of the parents of the female students, now, St. Scholastica's Academy is accepting boys but only for grade school. Though the school has plans on removing its girls-exclusive title and accepting boys in high school, but this is yet to be decided and as of now, a survey was conducted among the grade school boys if they want to continue in St. Scholastica's Academy their the high school studies. In 1972 as a solution, the High School Department was transferred to the wide barren grounds in Cer-Hil, five kilometers from the town proper; the previous match-like edifice has been expanded into an F-shaped building that houses the whole High School Department. A covered court with a stage, eating sheds, another building to house the Grade School Department and covered walks have been added through the combined efforts of the students, the alumnae, the PTA and the administration. On July 11, 1987, a building for the whole Grade School Department was blessed.

The preschool was transferred to a new building in 2001. The school has been renovated and the before F- shaped building of the high school department is now an E-shaped building to provide more classrooms for the students and on 2017 a new building was established to provide more rooms for the first batch of Grade 12 students. Beset by continuing threat of natural calamities prompted by the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991, SSA-SF was challenged to strengthen/further its social orientation through various curricular processes and continuing community involvement projects and activities. In 1992, it opened its door and provided temporary office for the Social Action Center of Pampanga and in 1994, it housed the lahar victims coming from various towns of Pampanga; the year after, SSA-SF shared its campus with Don Bosco Academy, the school, buried in lahar. SSA-SF suffered a tremendous drop in its enrollment in 1996 due to the devastation of lahar, but was able to recover the next year. Through all of these, SSA-SF continued its quest for excellence that in 1991, the High School Department was accredited by PAASCU and the Grade School Department in 2000 and 2014.
