In Ancient Rome, a school was founded by Emperor Hadrian for the promotion of literary and scientific studies. It was called Athenaeum, named after the town of Athens which was regarded as the seat of intellectual refinement. Athenaeum International School is one of the many institutions in the world which derives its inspiration from the original Athenaeum hundreds of years later. As appropriately depicted in its logo, Athenaeum International School upholds four major core values: achievement and success (laurel), wisdom for peace (dove and book), family and world citizenship (parent, child and globe), and prosperity (sunrays). On its twelfth year of operation in Cebu City, Philippines, Athenaeum offers the K plus 12 program which includes Preschool (Nursery 1, Nursery 2), Kindergarten plus Grade 1 to 10.
Athenaeum International School is a leading educational institution that promotes a strong foundation for family and world citizenship, advocates wisdom for peace and prosperity, and creates opportunities for achievement and success.

The Athenaeum Core Values
The gift of sound judgment shall be internalized by every Athenaean. The ability to use their knowledge is a perfection that every Athenaean aims to achieve which is anchored from the concept of ATHENAEUM as the seat of intellectual refinement. Through all of these the act of knowing and accumulating a body of facts and information comes along.
The Athenaean way is always geared towards competence in all endeavors. Such that, one is capable to do beyond what is expected of him or her. Competence can only be acquired after a thorough process of refinement.
Atheneaum expects from its students to develop the ability to respond to the needs and demands of the present life conditions. Being responsible enough to become good citizens of the country can pave the way for a brighter future of the generations to come.
An Athenaean student seeks to introduce new things. As an inherent skill that is cascaded within the framework of the institution, introducing new methods and ideas to make changes, is an indicator of a society in progress which teachers shall purposely aim to develop in every student.
Love is the core of every family. It creates a special bond among all peoples of the world. Athenaeum aims to develop in every child the love for ones self, family and society that is geared towards progress.
The Athenaean way contemplates on the wholeness of every student who can speak his mind and express his feelings with utmost sincerity. The state of being humble or modest is expected to be seen from every Athenaean student. The school aims to produce students who can fly or soar high with their dreams yet still grounded with their sense of humility.
Athenaeum aims to help every student to develop in them a habit of system and order by way of training and conditioning them to become obedient and self-controlled. Organizing ones self gives an edge over the others.
"Honesty is the best policy". Every Athenaean deserves to know the truth, embrace it and to be witnessing citizens of the community. Athenaeum aims to help every student to acquire the value of truthfulness towards becoming better citizens of the country.
With generosity in diversity, the Athenaeum way creates a challenge to every student to manifest a genuine spirit of sharing and giving despite the existence of diverse cultures, religion and ethnicities. Athenaeum believes in the spirit of generosity across culture, religion and race.
It is the aim of this institution to inspire all students and to develop in them the sense of undying support to their Alma Mater, mentors, classmates and friends.
