How we started...

Our institution was first known as Naval Reservation Junior College. It was passed by the Lindayag Family in 1961 to the Columban Fathers. The first Director of Columban College was Rev. Fr. Thomas L. Convery with Rev. Fr. Paul O'Malley SSC as his assistant. Columban Sisters were assigned in 1962 to assist in the administrative and teaching programs. In that same year the Parish of St. Columban was inaugurated with Rev. Fr. O'Malley as its parish priest. In 1965, Rev. Fr. Convery was succeeded by Rev. Fr. William F. Sullivan, SSC as School Director. Rev. Fr. John Curry SSC took over in 1971 and Rev. Fr. Edward McKenna from 1973 to 1975. From 1976 to 1982 Rev. Fr. Richard Cannon SSC was the School Director. He was succeeded briefly by Rev. Fr. Vincent Lyons .

Through the years...

In 1983, the administration of the college was handed by the Columban Fathers to the Vincentian Fathers. Rev. Fr. Constancio Gan was appointed School Director. The Daughters of Charity took over in 1989 with Sr. Stella Real D.C. as School Director. In 1993 , school administration reverted back to the Diocese of Iba. Rev. Fr. Daniel O. Presto was appointed as school director in 1993 and later became the first school president until October 2005. He was succeeded by Rev. Fr. Roland M. Almo and then by Rev. Msgr. Crisostomo A. Cacho until May 2020.
The current School President and Chief Inspiration Officer ( CIO ) is Rev. Fr. Raymann G. Catindig Ed. D. . He is also the incumbent Superintendent of the Diocesan Schools of Iba.
