Villanueva, Prof. Alicia Mateo, Mrs. Luisa Mariano, Prof. Mary Ann Marcelo, Prof. Rhia Sarmiento and Prof. Carmelita Almario, have gathered on December 8, 2014 to establish Immaculate Conception Polytechnic, few months after the official signing of the Republic Act 10533 also known as the Enhanced Basic Education Curriculum, of the then Philippine President Benigno Aquino III.
A number of preparations and requirements were set out such as classroom and facilities, academic personnel, marketing and promotions, and recruitment of students. After thorough evaluation of the Department of Education, in March 2015, government permit to operate was issued to the institution.
In August 2015, Dr. Neil Mateo together with his marketing team was invited by various public schools to provide orientations to the then Grade 10 students regarding senior high school education curriculum. Early registration was conducted and more than 1,800 Grade 10 had expressed their intentions to enroll in ICP. Official enrollment ensued from January up to June 2016.
And enrollment count was finalized to 1,348 official enrollees, all from public schools. ICP had rated as the biggest senior high school in the DepED Bulacan Division, second in the entire province.
ICPians had also discovered pool of writers as the school sent students to join the District, Division and Regional Press Conference, DepEd’s most prominent academic contest. A group of writers was recruited as staffers of ICP’s publication -Katha. Several organizations of different interests were established such as ICP Student Council, ICI Dance Group, bands, track and strand clubs, etc. Other special events were successfully organized such as acquaintance party, sportsfest, and anniversary celebration during the school year 2016-2017.
On June 6, 2016, ICP opened its doors to the first Grade 11 ICPians. The institution joined the prestigious Bulacan Association of Private Schools as member school. And during the academic, cultural and sports competition of BULPRISA in August 2016, the ICPians have showcased their talents, skills and innovations, luckily, most of them brought home the bacon.
