Office of the School President

Dear Friends:

president1All throughout these years, John Paul II College of Davao is fast becoming what we envision it to be: a center for academic excellence in this southern part of the country. Its leaps and bounds are attributable to a number of factors that excellently converge to make this dream a reality: our ever youthful, energetic and amiable pool of professors and non-teaching staff, our very professional and equally competent members of the administration, our industry-based curriculum and state-of-the-art educational and laboratory facilities among others.

One among the most affordable colleges in the country, JPIICD offers not only low tuition fees, but also substantial financial aid to poor but deserving students through our academic, sports and cultural scholarship programs.  You will find a complete description of all our offered courses in the Academics section of this website. We believe that excellent quality education – without being expensive – must be accessible to everybody.

Our campus, with its seven-storey building and replete with modern educational facilities, contributes to the development of a very pleasant and familiar atmosphere that is quite conducive for learning. Where can you find a college whose professors are like elder brothers or sisters, mothers and fathers to their students —teachers whose only passion is seeing their students succeed and happy? Such a familiar ambiance is especially palpable during school festivities, intramural, and outreach programs. For JPCeans, our Alma Mater is truly a second home!

But just like any happy family, what keeps our JPIICD family going is our two-fold zeal for academic excellence and the development of moral values of our students. Inspired by the moral doctrines and values of our patron, Saint John Paul II, the College embodies the spirit that has inspired me personally and my family all these years, and is contained in the motto “Ad astra per aspera” (To the stars through sacrifices). Truly, JPCeans find this spirit worth emulating!

I am particularly proud of the success each year of JPCeans making it to the top ranks in various licensure examinations and of those who are now successful in their respective careers in life. True enough, as we help form globally competent, morally upright and responsible citizens of this country, these alumni are the living legacy of a college that is slowly, but with a constant pace, making a name in the Philippine academic arena.

Through this website, we hope that those who would like to become part of this great JPCean family will find more reasons to do so. Thus, it is with great pride that I invite all students to come and shape your future with us!
