Gordon College was an off-shoot of the Olongapo City Training Center, then a training center for skilled manpower for employment at the former Naval facility of the United States. With the facility’s closure and the slowing down of demand for skilled workers, City residents shifted to professional courses. The unavailability of affordable tertiary institutions for urban poor sector of the population led the City Government of Olongapo, during the incumbency of Hon. Katherine H. Gordon, then City Mayor, to open the Olongapo City Colleges through City Ordinance No. 9 Series of 1999.
