The IJA Seal

The seal of Infant Jesus Academy serves as a constant reminder of what IJA stands for.

The IJA school seal features an escutcheon divided into four parts by a cross which symbolizes Jesus Christ who is the center of all the school’s undertakings.  On the upper left is the image of the Holy Spirit, representing the source of inspiration of the school’s Founder, Mrs. Consolacion F. Mallonga who used to belong to the Servant Sisters of the Holy Spirit congregation.  The image of the Holy Spirit also symbolizes that the members of the school community continuously seek guidance from Him in achieving the school’s vision and mission. The torch and open book represent enlightenment and knowledge. At the lower right is the image of Infant Jesus in the Manger, the guiding light when the school was being constructed in December 1978. Two parts of the heraldic shield bear the school colors—blue and silver.  Blue is associated with the Virgin Mary, peace and service. Silver symbolizes the enduring light that continuously sparks the school’s commitment to excellence and pursuit of relevant education for the youth. The 1979 on the curved edge of the escutcheon was the year when the first IJA School – IJA Marikina, opened its doors to students. The scroll below the escutcheon indicates the location of the campus and the year when it was established.
