From Ashes we will Rise
#BangonSacre

We all cried when we saw Sacred Heart College was on fire in the morning of January 1, 2019. The Chapel, the Hermana Fausta Hall, Archives, MIS/IT Center, Sisters's Quarters, College Library, IBED Library and the grade School Classrooms were totally burned. We are thankful though that all ten sisters are safe and no one was hurt.

BSA Student

Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA)

Sacred Heart College (SHC) started offering the Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA) in the year 1963 as one of the major fields of specialization of the Bachelor of Science in Commerce program. Meeting its goal to be the home of future Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), the institution has truly produced CPAs. The College continues to form accountants who are not only technically qualified to cope with the demands of the industries but likewise challenged to become inner-directed Vincentian leaders and advocates of persons who are poor.


The BSA program provides general accounting education to students wanting to pursue a professional career in accountancy. This program also seeks to prepare the student for a general accounting career and eventual entry to any of the four major fields of accountancy: public practice, commerce and industry, government and education. The BSA program provides a foundation of professional knowledge, professional skills, and professional values, ethics and attitudes that enable them to continue to learn and adapt to change throughout their professional lives.
