Company Description:

The Adamson University was founded seventy six (76) years ago by three Greek cousins, Dr. George Lucas Adamson, Alexander Adamson, and George Althos Adamson as a school of Industrial Chemistry.  It was converted into a non-stock, non-profit organization on December 8, 1964 after it was turned over to the Vincentian Fathers at San Marcelino Street and was named Adamson Ozanam Educational Institutions.  It has since become a Catholic Institution of learning whose vision of education makes it participate in the Catholic Church's mission of establishing the Reign of God in the secular world. The school is managed by the Vincentian Brothers, it has adopted the mission and vision of St. Vincent de Paul.  Priests belonging to the Vincentian Congregation occupy majority of the seats in the University's Board of Trustees. On March 31, 2015, the University was approved by the Department of Education to offer Senior High Programs as compliance to K-12. Its main office is located at 900 San Marcelino Street, Ermita, Manila. The school has 617 regular staff, 781 project-based staff and 164 part-time staff, 11 Board of Trustees.


It was certified for 5 years on May 31, 2005 which ended on May 30, 2010. The school was unable to re-apply due to change of person in-charge with accreditations. On May 6, 2014, the school was given a three (3)-year certification which ended on November 04, 2016.


Its purposes, among others, are “to assist in the formation of competent, creative and socially responsible leaders through our commitment to excellence in discovery, learning and service; to be  the catalyst of social transformation by providing quality services that empower others to become agents of social change”. The institution’s programs focus on education and is operating a school.
