About Us

Colegio de Sto. Tomas-Recoletos, Inc. was established in 1940 through the Provincial Chapter of the Order of Agustinian Recoletos held in Manila.

The school was once called Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Institute (STVI) and it used to be an exclusive school for boys until 1972.

Today, it’s 79 year-old halls and porches still stand strong and resilient on Azcona Street, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental. It continues to provide quality education that focuses on “Caritas et Scientia,” St. Augustine’s edict on Love and Knowledge.

In 2016, CST-R opened its Senior High School Department in compliance with the Department of Education K to 12 Curriculum. CST-R’s SHS focuses on academic tracks: STEM, ABM and HUMSS.

With its ensemble of passionate and competent faculty members and staff, it continues the quest to form the youth in the Augustinian values and equip them with skills and learnings for a progressing Filipino nation.
