Lourdes School Quezon City (LSQC) is a private, Catholic educational institution owned and founded by the Capuchins in Quezon City, Philippines, beside the National Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. LSQC was originally called Lourdes Catholic School, but changed to distinguish it from its sister school Lourdes School of Mandaluyong (LSM).
Students who study in this school are called "Lourdesians."
The Lourdes School Quezon City offers four levels of education: High school, Grade school, Preparatory school, and Kindergarten. Historically, LSQC was an exclusive school for boys across all levels; however, in the late 1970s, the high school department began admitting girl scholars and in 1998 eventually became semi coeducational.
Students who cannot afford the tuition fee may avail of the school's Financial Assistance Program which offers study grants to academically competent children from low-income families.
The school logo has the following main features: three small crosses on both sides, two arms crisscrossed before a cross, set against a background of clouds. The three crosses signify the Trinitarian dimension particular to Franciscan spirituality. The bare arm is that of Christ who gave his life for man’s salvation. The sleeved arm is that of St. Francis of Assisi, who embraced the Cross of Christ which earned him the title “Mirror of Christ”. He lived a life closest to Christ’s by living the Gospel literally. The big cross is significant of the means to “Becoming Like Christ” a lifelong striving based in the heart of every Franciscan. The clouds connote heaven, our home and destiny, in the bosom of the Supreme Good. The school's logo features the motto "Pax Et Bonum", a traditional Franciscan greeting which means "Peace and goodwill" or "Peace and the good" (often imprecisely translated as "Peace and all good". Note that the word "all", in any of its Latin translations, does not appear in the phrase).
The school hymn of the school is titled Lourdes Forever which was composed by Francesco "Gil" Raval.
Let us blend our tongues in praises
The school is accredited by the PAASCU. The Grade School department has a level II accreditation, while the High School department is on level III, the highest level for accreditation (thus joining a small circle of less than fifteen schools).
