|School of excellence and quality education today for the future
COLEGIO DE SAN PEDRO was founded by Atty. and Mrs. Maximo R. Abesamis (nee Erlinda V. Pampolina) school year 1980-1981.
"All so suddenly we are on our 26th year. We look back to our humble beginnings, our hearts filled with gratitude to God. And we realize how much responsibilities go with these blessings," said the Abesamis couple.
The enterprising couple established the Pacita Complex Learning Center, a nursery/kindergarten school. Their vision: Service to God and Country. Opening date: School year 1981-1982.
In school year 1982-1983, Grades 1-4 were organized. In 1983-1984 Grades 5 was added and in 1984-1985 Grades 6 was opened.
In 1986, the school was renamed COLEGIO DE SAN PEDRO, now with complete high school. Mrs. Atanacia B. Malsi, former general supervisor in the Division of City Schools, Manila, was high school principal, from 1986 to 1991 when she left for the United States.
Through the years, COLEGIO DE SAN PEDRO has kept pace with the changing needs and conditions of the time and society.
The high school department became COLEGIO DE SAN PEDRO SCIENCE HIGH SCHOOL at the start of the school year 1996-1997, with the addition of the science-oriented curriculum.Computer Education was offered from Grade I-VI, through high school.
In the same school year, the college department was established giving way to the COLEGIO DE SAN PEDRO INSTITUTE OF COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY.
Mr. and Mrs. Abesamis, together with the key teachers and known educators, conceived the Institute of Computer Technology because of the felt need to produce world-class graduates or professionals who can live effectively in the fast developing high-tech century.
A new 5-storey college building was built in the 2-hectare ground of CDSP.
Initially, two courses were offered, namely, Associate in Computer Secretarial and Associate in Computer Science.
CDSP has a well-defined/emerging culture composed of the shared beliefs, expectations and values. This is shown in the following creed:
Culture is consistent with the current objectives, strategies, policies and programs. Instructors, teachers and other school personnel have a common goal. All are instruments in the accomplishment of objectives and implementation of strategies, policies and programs.
All honestly believe that productivity (success) depends much on the quality of their performance and that of their students/graduates.
The school easily adapts to changing conditions since its curriculum offerings keep pace with the needs and conditions of the society.
Today, the CDSP INSTITUTE OF COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY is a landmark in Pacita Complex, San Pedro, Laguna. From its fifth floor multi-purpose rooftop can be seen the panorama of surrounding towns and villages.
COLEGIO DE SAN PEDRO is committed to the total quality education of its students by offering them the best in computer-related courses and the chance to a high-paying career.
This can only be achieved with highly qualified and experienced educators, multi-media laboratories with full internet connectivity, detailed step-by-step instructions and exercises.
Focus is on delivering relevant training to the way companies work. This training will lead students to "achieve excellence and quality education today for the future". It is also the CDSP’s commitment to deliver the most effective and efficient way to acquire immediate computer skills through instructor-led, hands-on training and preparing the students for global competitiveness.
In order to attain the objective of Colegio de San Pedro’s global competitiveness, the College Department has established various organizations whose main function is to study, make research, and participate in the on-going trend in Computer Education. The Society of CDSPians in Information Technology (ScITech) works from the latest discoveries and innovations in Computer Technology. It adapts these in their curriculum agenda so students can acquire or learn the most modern and state-of-the-art computer operations.
The Supreme Student Council (SSC) promotes the welfare, discipline, camaraderie, and well-being of the students. Officers are the source of help, assistance, advice and solution to students’ problems. They act as role models to the students in particular, and CDSP in general.
The officers and members of Math Society (MathSoc) offer their expertise in tutorial services to students for free. They provide guidance in mathematical/statistical problems.
The Teatro Batingaw is responsible for performances in various school programs promoting the school particularly in theater arts. It takes charge of all college activities such as Foundation Week, Buwan ng Wika, Christmas Celebration, Graduation, etc.
The National Service Training Program (NSTP) is a requirement for graduation as provided by R.A. 9163.
In compliance with the latest rules in the conduct of NSTP on Green Philippine High-Way, CDSP has launched its Tree Planting Activity. NSTP students planted various seedlings at the main road of Pacita Complex in coordination with Chairman Norvic D. Solidum of Barangay San Vicente, San Pedro, Laguna. These trees will be thoroughly maintained by the members of the barangay, the Homeowner’s Association and the NSTP students of Colegio de San Pedro.
