The school is dedicated to the youth of the land eager to search for educational opportunities and challenges for responsible citizenship and leadership by developing the potentials of the youth to the end fruition of their learned skills and competences, thus, enabling them to become assets of the nation and global community.
When Sucat Road, Paranaque was still surrounded with rice fields and salt beds, Dr. Pablo and the late Dr. Rosario Olivarez pioneered in the development of the community when they put up Olivarez General Hospital in 1975. The following year, the spouses envisioned to establish a school in which its graduates shall be immediately hired in the said hospital and, at the same time, contribute in the formation of the youth dedicated to the service of God, country and man. Being medical practitioners themselves who were aware of the great demand for nurses in the Philippines and abroad, they established the Olivarez School of Nursing on April 30, 1976
Due to a dramatic increase in the student's enrollment the following year, additional programs like Liberal Arts and vocational courses were offered. The name Olivarez School of Nursing was changed to Olivarez Junior College.
In 1978, it instituted the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, College of Commerce and other Health Related Courses. The school began accepting high school students in the following year. In 1980, the school changed its name to Olivarez College and has kept the prestigious name until now.
The school began accepting first and second year high school students in school year 1979. It also started to offer complete elementary courses from grades one to six. The Academic Council was composed of the Executive Vice-President, Dean of the College Department and the department heads who make internal decisions regarding school operations and academic innovations and developments.
Currently the school is offering graduate programs such as Master of Arts in Education, major in Educational Management, Guidance and Counseling, Master in Business Administration, Doctor in Business Administration and Master in Public Administration, respectively.
