To date, Southridge boasts of more than a thousand alumni since its first graduation in 1984. True to her commitment and promise of quality education with its twin goals of a balanced and demanding academic and personal formation, her graduates would go to the best universities in the country or study abroad, including the ivy league universities in the USA. Many have graduated in their chosen fields from their choice universities with honors. Many of the alumni now run their own businesses, occupy sensitive positions in their offices or in government either as elected or appointed officials, or are dedicated members of the work force. Some have opted to make a difference by starting and organizing civic-oriented non-governmental organizations or simply joining them.

The Southridge Alumni are the school’s concrete answer to its 10th Credo: “We believe that our best contribution to the community, to the nation, and to the world is the gift of well-formed and principled people.”

"The chats I had at Southridge with my mentors over the years helped me stay on track with my academics and extra-curricular activities. More importantly, they helped form me into a better person. It was in these chats that I could get personal and custom-fit advice to help me live the virtues and values that were being taught to us in school. Through the chats, I was able to set goals for myself both, in the short and long term, while also taking into account my development as a person."

Aldo Manzano, Batch 2011

Fund Manager, BDO

"Looking back, the mentoring chat (or tutorial chat as we called it back then) was an opportunity for me as a student to stay grounded, re-center my priorities, and be mindful of the greater purpose that the spiritual life played. It was easy to get lost in the tasks of academic and extra curricular activities, but, I realize now, those mentoring chats actually kept me aligned to the more essential matters of growing up."

Marco Benitez, Batch 1998

Licensed broker, Sportscaster, Entrepreneur

“The three turning points in my life all happened in the Mentoring Chats. My Mentors taught me the following:

  • Mr. Noel Balmaceda - that failure is part of life, what is important is to stand up and begin again
  • Dr. Ton Ton Torralba – ‘kapag tama ka, ipaglaban mo’
  • Mr. Manny Escasa - that you should recite more because you are better than half of the class

These turning points have helped me become who I am today. They made me realize that Mentoring is not just helping students to pass but also prepares us for life.”
