History of Lipa City Colleges

Lipa Business School was founded by the late Ricardo and Marcela Bonilla in July 1947. Its humble origins began with classes attended in rented buildings along B. Morada Ave., Lipa City, adjacent to the old Lipa City Hall. The first total enrollment had a population of sixty-five (65) students comprising first and second years of the secondary course.

In answer to the growing population during the school year 1948-1949, the school had a daring decision to rent a bigger building not far from the former site. It has paved the way to offer complete Secondary Course and Collegiate Courses, such as Liberal Arts, Junior Moral Education, Commerce and One Year Collegiate Secretarial Course.

In line with the dedication and hard work of the late founder of the school, they relocated to a more spacious location with an existing edifice at G.A. Solis St., Lipa City, where the school is permanently housed. With a sincere intent to make the school be noteworthy in the cause of being the first to serve with three levels of education – elementary, secondary and tertiary – the name of the school was changed to Lipa City Colleges on its third year of operation. Incidentally, the College of Law was opened. Successes were reaped year after year with the increasing population.

The cause to serve the people in the City of Lipa and adjacent towns through quality education continued the succeeding years of the school's existence. In line with its expansion, the school has acquired adjoining lots where four (4) concrete buildings, the frontal one of five-storey and the three others on all sides on 4-storey. In this present day, it has more than three thousand (3000) students and is introducing new courses in the field of Hotel and Restaurant Management, Tourism and Criminology.

Today, Lipa City Colleges is headed by Mr. Carlos Mojares, the son-in-law of the late founder assisted by his wife, Mrs. Glecy B. Mojares, their daughters, Mrs. Marjorie M. Abiera, Vice-President for Finance and Internal Affairs, Beverly B. Mendoza as Vice-President for External Affairs, and son-in-law Mr. Joe Vincent J.
