The Liceo del Verbo Divino also referred to by its acronym LVD is a private, Catholic, co-educational basic education institution run by the Society of the Divine Word in Tacloban City, Leyte, Philippines. It was founded by the Divine Word Missionaries in 1929.

Liceo del Verbo Divino was formerly the Divine Word University of Tacloban. The latter was closed in June 1995 by the school administrators after a court ruling favoring the labor union which is composed of its faculty members and other employees. In 2006, DWU reopened its doors with a new administration and a new name, Liceo del Verbo Divino. It currently offers Basic Education (preschool, elementary, junior high school, and senior high school).
