University of Southern Philippines Foundation

University of Southern Philippines Foundation 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).

The University of Southern Philippines Foundation was founded by men and women who felt the need of establishing a private, non – sectarian educational institution that would offer relatively high standards of instruction within the reach of the average man in the community. These men and women were: Agustin Jereza, a civil engineer from the State University of Iowa; Virgilio Gonzales, a doctor of medicine from the University of the Philippines; Miguel Sanson, a practicing attorney; Mrs. Natividad Villa – Albino, a school teacher; Felipe Ouano, Fructuoso Ramos, and Hipolito Andrada, businessmen; and Dr. Jose Mirasol, a chemist and a former dean of the Cebu Junior College, then the Cebu branch of the University of the Philippines. Dr. Mirasol served as the first director of the school.

The University of Southern Philippines Foundation, was first called Southern Institute at the time it was founded in 1927. The institute began by offering a complete elementary course and the first two years of secondary education. In response to public demand, the secondary course was made complete with the addition of the third and the fourth year levels. At first, classes were held in a residential house on Colon Street. With the increase in the school population, the school moved to a more spacious location on Mabini Street.
