Aklan Catholic College (ACC)
is a private educational institution in the municipality of Kalibo
. The school formally opened in 1945 as the Aklan College
, with programs for elementary and for college students. In 1958, the College of Law was established, and this was followed by the Graduate School in 1964; Aklan College became the first higher education institution to offer law and graduate programs
. During a period of challenges, the school was aided by the Catholic Church; and, with the integration of religion classes in its programs, the college eventually became a Catholic institution.
ACC currently has four academic units providing higher education programs—Nursing, Information and Computer Studies, Business Education, Teacher Education, Law,
and Graduate Studies
. It also offers a complete basic education program that includes curricula for Special Education (SPED)
and for Senior High School (SHS)
. SHS students can choose from selected strands under the Academic
and the Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL)
tracks. Additionally, the college is a TESDA Accredited Training and Assessment Center
with various courses in the areas of Hotel and Restaurant Services, Healthcare Services, and English Language Proficiency.
