Colegio de San Pascual Baylon[1] or the College of St. Paschal Baylon (CSPB, formerly Escuela Catolica [Catholic School] and St. Pascual Institution (SPI) is a collegiate school at Obando, Bulacan in the Philippines. The school started as a catecetical school on February 11, 1913 through the efforts of Rev. Fr. Juan Dilag, parish priest of Obando. It became a pre-elementary school, an elementary institution in 1936, added a secondary level in 1939 through 1943, then became a college. Formerly managed by the Sisters Religious of the Virgin Mary, it is currently managed by the Dominican Sisters of St. Joseph, a religious congregation in Bulacan. It was formally recognized by the government of the Philippines in 1921. Its name was derived from one of Obando, Bulacan’s patron saints.[1]



World War II

After being destroyed by fire in February 1945, the school reopened in 1947. There was a separate department for boys and girls during the time of the parish priest Rev. Fr. Rome Fernandez, who also served as a director of the educational institution. Fernandez managed the boys department while the Religious of the Virgin Mary sisters managed the girls department. After twelve years, the two departments were merged, during the school year of 1975-1976. The kindergarten level was also opened during that time. The merging of the boys and girls departments only lasted for seven years. The two departments separated during the school year 1982-1983. A college department was later opened on June of 1985, leading to the change of name from St. Pascual Institution to Colegio de San Pascual Baylon. In 1988. the management of the school was handed over to the Dominican Sisters of St. Joseph by the Most Rev. Cirilo R. Almario, D.D., the bishop of Malolos, Bulacan.[1]
