Stonyhurst Southville International School (SSIS) is committed to meet customer, statutory and regulatory requirements in developing learners to excel in academics and values through continuous improvement of institution’s academic programs, support services and administrative systems.


Stonyhurst Southville International School – Malarayat (SSISM) was established in 2007 due to the strong demand for international education in the city of Lipa; and the increasing number of clients coming from the city and its nearby towns.

Originally situated in a small house with a population of only 44 students, SSISM has now grown to more than 500 students and, stands tall with its iconic building facing the grandeur of the Malarayat mountains. SSISM is the only school in the city that is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, USA; and recognized as a School of International Character based on Republic Act (R.A.) No. 9493.

Despite being a relatively young school, SSISM has started to build a reputation of Academic Excellence. It has made a mark in the international arena, winning hundreds of awards and recognitions from International Competitions for the past 5 years. It has also been consistently recognized by Scholastic Inc. as a Reader’s Cup Awardee, for its remarkable performance in reading. Aside from its core subjects, the school has put a spotlight on Executive Function, Financial Literacy, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Foreign Languages and Research.

With KINGS as its moniker, SSISM pledges to “Always wear its invisible crown” as they live the 5Cs – Competence, Character, Commitment to Achieve, Collaboration and Creativity.
