The institution which was known before as Our Lady of Assumption School’s coming to existence was conceptualize in 1988 and was made possible in 1989 by Dr. Maximo C. Acierto Jr and Dr. Ethelwyn A. Acierto, both doctors of education, in the pursuit of their dream of providing Christian education to the young men and women of San Pedro, Laguna and to cater to the growing needs in the Education sector of a fast-growing population in the Southern Tagalog region.

During the first year of its operations, the first batch of classes housed at the San Pedro, Laguna campus in Villa Olympia Subdivision was composed of 377 students in the Pre-Elementary and first year high school levels.

In 1994, its founders decided to put up another campus, thus giving birth to the Santa Rosa, Laguna branch located in San Lorenzo South Subdivision in Santa Rosa, Laguna offering a complete program from Pre-Elementary to High School.

In the succeeding years, the third and fourth campuses in Phase 2 and Phase 6 Mabuhay City Subdivision, Brgy. Mamatid, Cabuyao City were established in 2000 and 2004 respectively to make educational services available in Cabuyao City, Laguna. One of the big leaps of the institution was the change of its status from Our Lady of Assumption School into the Our Lady of Assumption College of Laguna Inc., granted on (date) by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports. The initial tertiary programs were BSBA Major in Entrepreneurship, Management, Information System, BS in Computer Science, Bachelor in Elementary Education, Bachelor in Secondary Education, BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management, BS in Customs Administration, BS in Tourism and AB Political Science and two Associate two-year courses: Associate in Computer Secretarial and Associate in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

In 2009, the fifth campus opened in Batangas located at N. Gonzales Street, Poblacion II,Tanauan, Batangas. It is located in the heart of the city and is very accessible to all public amenities.

School year 2016-2017, the school started its operation on the new educational system with an overwhelming number of students enrolled on the first year of implementation of the Senior High School curriculum.
