History[edit]

The Rizal State College was established by Republic Act Number 1560 in 1956 as Rizal National Agricultural School (RNAS) and was chartered as a state college on June 24, 1983 by Batas Pambansa Bilang 662 known as Rizal College of Agriculture and Technology (RCAT) which was later Rizal State College (RSC) making it the first state college of the Province of Rizal. The College is about 67 kilometers from Metro Manila and accessible to towns of Rizal through Manila East Road through the newly opened sea level in the Sierra Madre Mountain range and is overlooking the Laguna Lake and the surrounding lake towns. The College has five extension campuses located in four of the thirteen towns of Rizal namely: Pililla, Rodriguez, Angono, Binangonan, and in the lone City of Antipolo which were established in 1991, 1995, 1996 and 2000, respectively.

The Rizal Polytechnic College (formerly Rizal Technological and Polytechnic Institute (RTPI)) was established as a provincial high school in 1944. It is located in the heart of the town of Morong. By virtue of Batas Pambansa Bilang 469, the school was converted into a tertiary institution and on March 1, 1995, Republic Act Number 7933 converted RTPI into a state college known as Rizal Polytechnic College (RPC). The College has an extension campus in Cainta which was opened in 1999.
