Manila, Philippines – On November 8, students, families, and supporters of Everest Academy Manila gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking for Everest’s new middle school. Everest Academy, which began 5 years ago with 19 students, is now serving more than 260 students and continues to grow!

In his message to everyone present, Operations Director Eduardo Guerra said that Everest “may not be huge compared to our neighbors, but our commitment in fulfilling our mission of forming our students to become tomorrow’s Christian leaders inspires us to always strive higher and be better.”

The Everest community sees this new middle school as part of that mission – an opportunity to evangelize culture by helping even more students to become Christian leaders.

7th grader Savion Garcia compared Everest Academy to the mustard seed in the Gospel; it started out small, but grew

into something great.

“From tiny beginnings, just like a mustard seed, Everest Academy is growing. This also applies to us. We are still growing and we are still learning. We sincerely hope that Everest Academy will have a strong base so that it will be fully formed in the future and thus, will be able to form students with strong foundations in will and in spirit.”

Everest staff, families, and friends gave thanks to God for the continuing mission of their school, as it seeks to serve more and more families in Manila.

“I beseech the Good Lord to envelop this campus with the spirit of discovery and spiritual growth,” said Daniel Lee. “That our students will use this knowledge to better the world around them.”
