Davao Central College is an institution accredited by TESDA that offers Technical and Vocational Education and Training Programs (TVET) under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
DAVAO CENTRAL COLLEGE, INC., formerly known as Davao Central Institute was founded in 1948 by a group of UCCP Christians led by Mr. Salustiano Advincula. It was the first high school established in Toril.
It is non-sectarian school that caters to all students and pupils from all walks of life. It adopted the motto, “LIVE, LOVE, LIGHT” with JESUS Christ as the inspiring model for living.
The existence of DCC was greatly challenged by two separate fires that completely razed the school in 1959 and 1991. The other members of the corporation gave up on it after the first fire. But Mr. Advincula had the courage and vision to go on. Since then, DCC never ceased from continuing on with its mission.
The opening of the college programs in 1973 marked the first milestone of the school’s serious effort in catering not only to the needs of the community for basic education but also for higher education as it welcomed its first college students in the Bachelor of Arts program, the school’s first course offering.
Today, DCC has a complete Basic Education Program (Grade School, and High School), Sunday High School, Regular College Programs, namely, BSEd, BEEd, BSBA, BSHRM, BSCrim, BSIT, BSAT, Technical – Vocational courses.
In 2006 it was granted LEVEL 1 Accredited status by Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities -Accrediting Agency, Incorporated (ACSCU-AAI) for the Elementary and High School programs and the College of Education programs. The ACSCU-AAI has granted DCC a Level II Re-accredited Status for the three programs a year after. Another feather in the cap has been achieved by DCC as its BSBA program was granted Level I accreditation in April 2012.
In May 2015, the Basic Education Department got its Level III Accredited Status, Level I Re-accredited Status for BSBA Program and Candidate Status for BSHRM and BS Criminology programs.
To date, the whole institution is continuously working to keep pace with the demands and challenges of the changing times as it commits to realize its dream for academic excellence and empowered individuals imbued with Christian ideals for service.
