About Us

Premier education institution that develops top-level manpower skills

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.

NTC Hymn

Kami ay mangaglalakbay
Tanging paaralan
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.

Tanging ilaw
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
