Aiming to reinvent the XU Grade School to be more responsive to the demands and challenges of 21st-century learning, Xavier University - Ateneo de Cagayan consolidates the XUGS Macasandig and Pueblo campuses into one. The consolidated XUGS will be fully integrated into the XU Basic Education Complex in Pueblo, Cagayan de Oro, along with the Preschool, Junior High, and Senior High School.
The One XUGS Consolidation forms part of the strategic plan of the university, in line with its educational mission and vision of “becoming a leading ASEAN university forming leaders of character by 2033.” XU’s plan is not just to focus on the physical transfer of its teaching and non-teaching personnel, but also on curriculum development and the building of additional infrastructure to deliver quality Jesuit education and provide a more conducive learning environment for its students, teachers, and parents alike.
Farewell to XUGS Macasandig
On the sweet and solemn morning of May 28, the Xavier Ateneo community has bid farewell to the XUGS Macasandig campus. Tributes and prayers were offered to the past and present faculty, staff, administrators, Jesuits, parents, guardians, and pupils of the XU Grade School.
A statue of St Francis Xavier was also uprooted from Macasandig and then installed at the XUGS Pueblo, marking the start of the consolidation of the two campuses. The #OneXUGS project forms part of the strategic plan of the university, in line with its educational mission and vision of “becoming a leading ASEAN university forming leaders of character by 2033.”
The XUGS Formation Council honors our teachers and mentors as the community celebrates XUGS Macasandig's 50 dedicated years of caring for and nurturing the young. Listen to our educators express their love for their chosen vocation, their care and concern for their students, their fond memories of a common heritage, and their hopes for a brighter future for all. Show your love. Cheer your teachers and mentors today. Celebrate Jesuit education!
The XUGS Formation Council presents "Daghang Salamat, Macasandig," a series of videos depicting the strength, commitment, and giftedness of the XUGS community as it forges ahead toward the consolidation of its two campuses. As a community, we continue to count our blessings, knowing that in our deep gratitude for God's faithfulness to us, more gifts of abundance will come our way.
