Premier education institution that develops top-level manpower skills
It’s been about a month since we completed AC Education’s acquisition of NTC, and I wanted to share with you our vision for NTC, embodied in our Long Term Development Plan, as well as several initiatives we are working hard on to bring to you soon.
Our vision is for NTC to be the top college in the country for teacher education, and one of the best in producing industry-ready professionals who are ready to contribute their skills to the betterment of our country.
Our aim is to deliver an education that is both good quality and affordable. And so you will find that our fees for school year 2018-19 are still among the lowest within the University Belt.
The Long Term Development Plan that I recently shared with all our employees at my first Townhall, consists of Phase 1: Building on NTC’s Foundation, Phase 2: Introducing 21st Century Approaches and Synergies, and Phase 3: Exploring Growth Possibilities.
The History of NTC
The National Teachers College was founded by Dr. Segundo M. Infantado, Sr., a former Director of Public Instruction of the Philippines, and Dr. Flora Amoranto-Ylagan, whose interest in teaching and the preparation of good teachers arose from her unfortunate experience under a cruel teacher.
NTC was officially incorporated on September 29, 1928 and was authorized by the Department of Public Instruction on April 17, 1929 to operate as an educational institution. Its doors opened to the student public on June 10, 1929 and was granted government recognition on February 17, 1930. On its first year of operations, it was permitted by the government to operate a complete General Course in Education leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education, a complete Preparatory Course leading to the title of Associate in Arts, and complete courses in General High School, Commercial High School and High School in Home Economics—a first of its kind in the Philippines. All these courses were permitted to be offered in the morning and evening which was never done in other schools prior to the establishment of this College.

Kami ay mangaglalakbay
Taglay namin ang 'yong ngalan
Liwanag sa kadiliman
Ang diwa mo'y nabubuhay
Sa dibdib ng kababayan
At ang aming kalayaa'y
Mananatiling may tanglaw.
Na taglay mo'y ikakalat
Nang ang langit
Sa silanga'y lumiwanag
Kahit saan kami mapapunta
Ilaw namin ang iyong alaala
Ang tanglaw mo ay panghawi sa dusa
Sa silangan ay pag-asa ka
