Once it was a dream, a prayer of one person, of a family who responded to the call of God. The call was to establish a school founded in His love that looks upon every child as a holy offering to Him. Mrs. Victoria D. Leuterio founded the Holy Child College of Davao formerly Holy Child Day Care and Learning Center in 1981. With humble beginnings, it started from a garage of two classrooms as Preparatory school. With the prodding and encouragement of the Pre-school parents at that time, Mrs. Leuterio, the school Founder and Directress extended the school’s offering to the Primary Course. With the increase in enrollment each year, the school offered a complete Elementary course. The Pre-school and Elementary courses were given recognition by the government in 1986. The school then, opened its portals to high school students in the year 1989 and four years after the High School Department was awarded government recognition.
Indeed, the Divine Father honored the labor of His children, and the school bore fruits abundantly. Responding to the call of service, the school opened its doors to the members of our community who cannot go to school on a regular basis. Hence, The Sunday School Department provided opportunities to those working students to earn a high school diploma.
The academe now has three branches namely, The Holy Child College of Davao Jacinto, Mintal and Buhangin. The Jacinto and Mintal Campus offers complete Pres-school, Elementary and High School Curricula. Both also tender Sunday High School Program. The Buhangin Campus Offers Pre-school, Elementary and First Year to Third Year High School Curricula.
The workers of His vineyard continuously reap returns of blessings. The fruits served their purpose, that of multiplying goodness in the land. The HCCD continues to flourish as leading academy, not only in providing training to our youth in the aspects of basic education but also harnessing local talents in the field of sports and global competitiveness in the Information Technology market. Thus, HC3E rose as pillar in Information Technology Education. It offers Diploma and Bachelor Degree courses in Computer Education.
In the year 2004, the school continues to rise as a leading institution as it opened the college of Nursing, College of Commerce and College of Education.
At present, the Holy Child College of Davao continues to expand its services to the community. With its foundation strongly anchored in good soil of righteousness and faith in the Almighty, this institution will increasingly become a beacon light with her sterling performance in serving God, people and country.
