Asian Computer College is a private, non-sectarian institution of higher learning with two campuses in Calamba City in the Philippines. It was founded in 2000 as technical school offering short computer courses with basic education.

History[edit]

Asian Computer College was established in Mayapa, Calamba City on March 2000. During this year, the school offered both the College Short Computer Science Courses and Basic Education Curriculum – Complete Pre-Elementary, Grade 1 to Grade 4 and 1st Year and 2nd Year Levels. There were about 150 students in all levels during the first year of operation and around 18 teachers.

During its second year of operation, TESDA did not allow the school to offer vocational courses because they didn't want to use the same building that the elementary and high school students were using. The management would have to choose what to offer – the technical courses or the basic education curriculum. After a series of studies and observation done by the administration and management alike, they decided to offer only the basic education curriculum. Thus, the college courses were no longer offered during the second year. This time, complete Pre-elementary, Elementary, and High School courses were offered. The enrollment significantly increased. In the year 2002, there were more or less 200 students in all Grade and Year levels. The teaching staff also increased in number.

The third year of the school marked a lot of improvement in the physical facilities of the school. A new science laboratory room was added; the library was relocated to a bigger place because of the increasing number of reference and reading materials, the computer laboratory was fully air-conditioned with 30 computer units to accommodate the increasing number of students. Additional classrooms were also opened in time for the increase in the number of students. There were about 398 students enrolled that year and there were 22 teachers, a principal, an administrator, school treasurer and the president of the board of directors. In the year 2004 the school was relocated a larger space that can occupy the growing population of the students.

Two years after the relocation of the school, a new campus annex was built at Brgy. Punta, Calamba City. There are two buildings built. The two-storey building is for the High School Department while the one-storey is for the Elementary Department. The next year, the Annex has its own covered court where it is usually used as the place of the Foundation Day of ACC.

In the year 2010 the school partnered with the Genetic Computer college. These days mainly computer college offer study of internet like freelancing. The school offered a robotics subject for those who are willing to learn. And also this year the school competed in robotics and placed third.
