BLC INTERNATIONAL/INTEGRATED SCHOOL (Formerly Bataan Learning Center- BLC) is managed by BLC INTEGRATED SCHOOL, INC. a non-stock, non-profit organization using its own resources and that of his friends to operate a school which aim for high academic and behavioral standards to produce fully integrated students guided by Christian principles and Filipino values.
It has been founded and organized in 1985 as a preschool by and educator and an entrepreneur. MAGDALENA F. DUMLAO.
During the first three years of operation, BLC held its office and classes in the residence of the founder at #16 Guadalupe St., Ma. Fe, Orani, Bataan.
The increase in population from the first batch of 32 pupils to 175 in SY 1989-1990 caused BLC to transfer to a more spacious place.
A college within the subdivision, Bataan Educational Institute, with several idle rooms was leased for ten years to house the BLC increasing population.
But, after three years of leasing, BLC building was constructed in the 2976 square meters of land owned by the founder. In June 1993, BLC classes were transferred to its own building (10 classroom, 7x9 sq. m) at Apollo, Orani, Bataan.
Living up to its goals of providing quality education, BLCIS graduates who transferred to private schools in Manila and abroad proved that its curriculum and teaching are comparable with the accredited schools like Ateneo de Manila University, University of the Philippines, University of Santo Tomas, De La Salle University, St. Paul College, St. Scholastica College, Assumption College, Collegio De San Juan de Letran, University of Cebu, International School, Sta. Isabel College, to name a few. Our pupils adjusted easily and outstand in schools where they enrolled.
