Dr. Pablo R. Olivarez and the late Dr. Rosario de Leon Olivarez pioneered in the development of the community when they put up Olivarez General Hospital in 1975. Being medical practitioners themselves, they established the Olivarez School of Nursing on April 30, 1976.

In 1980 the school became Olivarez College and began offering Graduate School Programs in 1992. In 1993 Liberal Arts, Commerce and Nursing programs were granted Level II accreditation status by the PACUCOA. Likewise the Basic Education Department was awarded PAASCU level I status in February 2002 and level II accreditation status on May 14, 2004.
