Naga College Foundation

In 1947, Dr. Melchor Trinidad Villanueva founded the Naga Teachers College. Its primary concern was to train students for the teaching profession and to make quality education accessible to Bicolanos.

Housed in a rented residence along Peñafrancia Avenue, Naga City, the school initially offered a two-year Junior Normal Course leading to Elementary Teachers Certificate (ETC) for Elementary Teachers. Later, the school acquired its own site and continued to expand to where it now stands.

In 1950, Naga Teachers College became Naga College. Complete Elementary and High school education were established. Programs in the College, and Graduate levels, as well as, Technical non-degree courses were offered.

In 1987, Naga College was chartered by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock, non-profit institution. Naga College was transformed to Naga College Foundation and continued to expand its course offerings. Since then, it has become one of the leading educational institutions in the Bicol Region serving as a major partner in regional, as well as, national development.
