Who We Are

REX Book Store is a leading Education Solutions Provider in the Philippines that aims to develop learners who excel in a complex, rapidly evolving, globally connected, highly technological, and environmentally fragile world and who contribute to its betterment. To achieve this goal, REX provides Educational Materials that are relevant to schools, administrators, teachers, and — most importantly — students.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

Everything that we do — from publishing superior learning materials, to providing ISO-certified printing services, to holding relevant professional development seminars for educators and school administrators — are ultimately for the child (“Para sa Bata”). But we are not content with simply serving the child; we envision a Filipino Whole Child: a child who’s safe, healthy, challenged, supported, and engaged.

Our Vision

By 2024, the REX Group of Companies will be the industry leader in educating the Filipino Whole Child.
