Colegio San Agustin-Biñan, located at Southwoods Interchange, Juana Complex I, Biñan, Laguna, is an educational institution run by the Order of St. Augustine, a religious order whose members are known as Augustinians.

The Augustinians are present today in many countries where they have established educational institutions as means to carry out their mission in the church.

In our country, the Augustinians were the pioneers in the Church's task of evangelization. Since 1565, when the first group of Augustinians arrived under the leadership of Fray Andres de Urdaneta, OSA, the Augustinians founded towns and parishes, built schools, thus engaging in missionary, pastoral and educational works.

The Filipino Augustinian Province, officially known as the Province of Sto. Niño de Cebu-Philippines, was approved by the 174th General Chapter in Rome on September 13, 1983 as an outgrowth of the Province of Most Holy Name of Jesus based in Madrid, Spain.

At present, the Filipino Augustinians administer six parishes, three houses of formation, the Basilica del Sto. Niño in Cebu, six schools and colleges, namely, San Jose Catholic School in Iloilo, Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod, Colegio San Agustin-Biñan, Colegio Sto. Niño de Cebu, St. Thomas of Villanova Institute of Philosophy in Quezon City and the University of San Agustin in Iloilo City. It has opened missions in South Korea, Indonesia, South Africa and recently in Japan.
