Pierre Cornelis "Cornelio" de Brouwer inside the "convento" (convent) of the Immaculate Conception Parish (now the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Pasig City). It is considered the central Catholic educational institution of the Diocese of Pasig. Their president is Msgr. Gerardo O. Santos.
(PCC) In 1994 the old wooden college building was replaced by a concrete five-storey Administration Building. The building housed the high school and college classrooms as well as administrative offices. At the same time, a new school cafeteria was constructed in front of the high school building. The following year, a coeducational program was offered to the first two years of grade school and high school levels.

Considering that Pasig Catholic College is a Catholic school, it is conservative on some level. The administration imposes rules putting in mind the welfare and safety of their students. An example of this is the Keep Right policy that instructs students to stay on the right side when in the stairs, corridors, and similar places. Furthermore, the school has numerous security guards who are eager to do their job for the entire institution's security.
Like most of the schools in the Philippines, PCC requires students to wear uniforms. Girls wear skirts and blouses; the boys wear pants and white polo shirts. The uniforms may vary depending on the level the students are: pre-school, elementary, high school, and college.
