Given a place aptly conducive to quality teaching and learning, it envisions a community of learners trained to be critical thinkers, self-reliant with self-confidence guided with goals towards a progressive and harmonious development of their moral, intellectual and physical faculties oriented by a genuine love of God, of country and of neighbors.

Equipped with tools for teaching and learning from the College of Agriculture and Forestry founded by Dr. Rosalina A. Evora in 1978 in the logging camp owned by the Americans, she initiated its birth in the Monte Maria Village Subdivision with a deeper motive, that of giving her own children the quality education that will meet the needs of globalizations.
