The monogram AM stands for Ave Maria in praise of our Blessed Mother, the Patroness of the RVM Congregation. The Rays signify the light and wisdom which emanate from the Virgin, the Mother and light of the world. The Sampaguita beneath the book, being our national flower, is symbolic of the RVM being a Filipino Congregation. Stars represent our Lady’s many virtues.
At the center of the seal is an Open Book bearing the Latin inscription, Initium Sapientiae Timor Domini which in English means, “The Fear of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom.” ( Proverbs 9:10.) This is our school motto.
Essentially, the verse teaches us that our Loving Father is the true source of all wisdom. As a learning institution, we have deep commitment to produce graduates who are competent, compassionate and with a profound reverence to (for) the Divine Source of Wisdom, the Fountain of Grace and the Giver of Life.
