De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) offers prospective students the opportunity to develop their interests and passions so that they may become professionally competent in established industries and emerging fields of specialization.

DLS-CSB, a learner-centered community, is one of the seventeen District schools that comprise De La Salle Philippines (DLSP). Guided by the Lasallian principles of Faith, Zeal in Service and Communion in Mission, DLS-CSB’s education philosophy is founded on the belief that each student is endowed by God with talents and gifts that should be understood, appreciated and nurtured.

DLS-CSB has six schools that offer hands-on training and focused degree programs in different fields under the guidance of dedicated mentors and professional industry practitioners.

An open book in the middle of the seal is enclosed in a circle that forms the body of a five-pointed star. The book represents an open mind to learning, a symbol of the multidimensionality of human intelligence and the centerpiece of the college’s learning philosophy.

The star is a variation of the Signum Fidei, the sign of faith and the symbol of the De La Salle Brothers; it also means hope. The five points, bisected into green and white areas, represent benevolence, civility, humanitarianism, service-oriented goals, and scientific pursuit. Connecting each star’s points are solid and white circular lines that alternate from point to point, forming a circular pattern around the star.

Other parts include the two fronds of laurel, the Gloria et Honor Laurel, which signifies inspiration for quality education. “1988” represents the date of the college’s autonomy from De La Salle University-Manila and its membership into the De La Salle University System. The college name in Myriad typeface serves as a border, while two small circles separate the college name from 1988. The series of curves was adopted to form a scallop which serves as an ornament of the college logo.
