St. Paul University

Established in 1904 and known as the first St. Paul de Chartres Institution in the Philippines. A marker on Rizal Boulevard commemorates the landing of the seven Belgian nuns who founded the school in the old parish convent beside the Cathedral. The university traces its origins to the coming of the Sisters of Saint Paul of Chartres (SPC) in the Philippines. The congregation to which the sisters belonged was founded in Chartres, France in 1968.
