We believe that each person must face the practical realities of life - its opportunities, its responsibilities, its defects, its successes. How he is to meet this experiences, whether he is to become master or victim of circumstances, depends largely upon his preparation to cope with them - his education. The source of such an education is brought to view in this words of Holy Writ, pointing to the Infinite One: In Him "are hid all treasures of wisdom." (Colossians 2:3) "He hath counsel and understanding, Job 12:13". In a knowledge of God all true knowledge and real development have their source.

CBI Alma Mater Song
(Words and Music by: Catalino Rama)
"O'er the plains and mountains of fair Bukidnon
Where we hear the sweet strains of youth happy songs;
CBI beams brightly bearing e'er the banner high,
School that prepares for Christ's soon coming;
that leads to home beyond the skies.
CBI dear CBI, Alma Mater thee we praise!
We'll uphold thy standard high! Loyal we shall ever be;
'Tis our hope and prayer God grant thee prosperity,
and our bond shall ne'er be broken 'til we reach eternity!
Oh we love to study of God's Holy Word;
blessed wisdom arms us against the foes of truth;
onward sing with courage, God our Guide beside us stands!
May our school, our Alma Mater
flourish till our race is won!"
