The Capuchin Order in the Philippines was proclaimed a Province in 1985.
This proclamation challenged the Capuchin friars especially those in the school apostolate to provide the school community with the direction, mission and identity of Capuchin Franciscan schools to inspire them to embrace the Capuchin-
Franciscan way of life. Thus, the Mission Statement of the Capuchin School Apostolate was born.In 1987, Fr. Edmundo A. Tiamson, OFM Cap.(LSM), with Fr. Dominic B. Abella, OFM Cap. (LSQC), formulated this Mission Statement which
they presented to the Capuchin Brothers during the Easter Assembly in Tagaytay City in 1987. During the First Convivencia of School Administrators in April 1988 at Maryhill Retreat Center in Taytay, Rizal, this Mission Statement
was presented and explained by Fr. Edmundo A. Tiamson,OFM Cap. Drawing inspiration from the new Mission Statement, administrators continued pursuing the path to excellence in Catholic Education. More developments followed.

two projects were completed with the involvement of the PTA – the deep well water project and the full air-conditioning of all classrooms in both the high school and elementary buildings. A multi-purpose hall with a tennis
court on top was constructed alongside the covered walk going to the canteen during School Year 1998-1999. Giving in to the demand for kindergarten classes, two kindergarten sections were also started in the school year. In
response to the past changing technological advancements, the school put up computer laboratories in both departments and has subscribed to the services of GENYO Learning Management System to provide the school community more
enriched teaching learning experiences. .
LSM continuously responds to the challenges of the time with its cumulative facility improvements. In 2007, the tennis court was converted into another gymnasium named after Padre Pio of Pietrelcina.
In 2009, t he institution carried out more innovations and enhancements: an 80-seat St. Clare Audio-Visual Center in the HS Department; renovations of the canteen, swimming pool area, playground, Lourdes Hall, St. Francis Theatre,
Bro. Juniper Square Garden of Saints and pavement, gates and perimeter fence and Grade School and High School buildings. An extension of the high school building now named after St. Lawrence of Brindisi, houses four classrooms,
the HS library at the third floor, and the relocated Science Laboratories at the 4thfloor.The TLE (Technology and Livelihood Education) workshops which were located at the PaxEtBonum Building are now all clustered at the
HS Building. In each classroom is installed an LCD/ television set. Teachers can also access on-line instructional resources through Wi-Fi connection using Yopads. It was in 2010 when the libraries of both the GS and HS
departments started its automation program.
LSM considers its LEVEL II PAASCU accreditation, granted by the FAAP (Federation of Accrediting Agencies of the Philippines) in 2010,a recognition of its commitment to quality Catholic education.
From 2010 onwards, more physical facilities development initiatives in support of the school’s academic programs materialized as the school geared towards the challenges of curricular reforms. The renovation of the HS Faculty
room and office lobby, the renovation of the HS Conference room, Subject Area Coordinators office and the different administrative offices in the high school department contributed to better work and learning environment
for teachers and students. Classrooms dedicated to Music and Art classes, Drafting and Electronics classes in the St. Lawrence of Brindisi building provide for more conducive learning atmosphere. .
