Early life and education
Cayetano was the second child born to former Senator Renato Cayetano and Sandra Schramm, His older sister, Pia, also serves as senator. While his younger siblings, Rene and Lino, both serve in local government, councilor and barangay captain, respectively. Cayetano studied at De La Salle-Santiago Zobel School during his elementary and secondary years. After which, he pursued a bachelor's degree of Political Science at the University of the Philippines, Diliman and a law degree at the Ateneo de Manila University.
Senator Alan Peter Cayetano was only 13 years old when he was first exposed to public service. His father, the late Senator Renato “Compañero” Cayetano, was then elected Assemblyman representing Taguig, Pateros and Muntinlupa.
He took interest in political science and enrolled at the University of the Philippines in Diliman where he eventually ran and won as a university councilor in the student council. Then inspired by his father’s preeminent standing as a lawyer, student Alan decided to pursue a degree in Law at the Ateneo de Manila University where he graduated as Silver Medallist and with a Second Honourable Mention. He was later admitted to the Philippine Bar in 1998.
Having had the privilege of seeing his father consulting, meeting, and working with people from all walks of life, it was not difficult for him to decide on a lifetime advocacy and career in public service.
Cayetano held public office at local level as councilor for Taguig (elected 1992) and vice mayor (elected 1995), after which he held legislative positions as congressman (elected 1998, 2001 and 2004) and senator (elected 2007 and 2013).
