ONE CAINTA COLLEGE
DR. VICTORIA NAVAL
The establishment of a locally funded college in Cainta is aimed to provide quality higher education to the citizens of Cainta and produce globally competitive and employable graduates who will become future leaders of the community, the nation and the world.
As a public servant with the passion, commitment and heart to serve the people, Mayor J. Keith P. Nieto with the full support of the Sangguniang Bayan applied with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to open a college, the “One Cainta College”.
One Cainta College was originally organized by virtue of Ordinance No. 2016-021 “An Ordinance Establishing A Local College in the Municipality of Cainta To Be Known as the “One Cainta College”, Granting its Charter, Providing For The Rules, Regulations and Pertinent Guidelines For Its Establishment and Operations Thereof. The ordinance was approved by the Cainta Sangguniang Bayan (SB) on August 30, 2016, at the SB Hall Cainta, Rizal.
This ordinance was amended by Ordinance No. 2018-009 to include additional provisions based on CHED’s recommendations during CHED’s Office of Institutional Quality Assurance and Governance (OIQAG) Visit to One Cainta College last June 13, 2018.
