It has programs based on Jesuit education with a philosophy of being “persons for others.” Its strategically located school buildings and facilities in Quezon City provide a safe and peaceful atmosphere for its students.
AGS provides a well-balanced education that nurtures its students to be academically competent. At the same time, AGS focuses on forming the Christian values of the youth to become leaders in the service of God. The school follows the K-12 curriculum which is being implemented in the Philippines.
The Ateneo Grade School has six grade levels that cover Grade 1 to Grade 6. In addition to this is a kindergarten level that completes the Ateneo de Manila K-12 Basic Education continuum.
