The Escuela Catolica was built in 1940 by the Spanish clergy in Boljoon. The building served as a dorm for children who were about to take their first communion, according to the Cebu Heritage Frontier. The children housed in the building are those who come mainly from the upland barangays of the town. In addition, the structure was also used as the venue for religious teachings and was also used as a school at one point.
To reach the Escuela Catolica you have to get on a bus headed for Boljoon. Tell the driver to let you off at the town’s parish church or the Nuestra Señora del Patrocinio de Maria Parish Church. The Escuela Catolica is located a few meters from the church.
