HISTORY OF DYCI




Dr. Yanga’s Colleges, Inc. (DYCI) started as a non-sectarian secondary institution.  It was established in 1950 as the Francisco Balagtas Academy (FBA) by the former owners, the late Mr. and Mrs. Gerardo Samson, Sr.

In 1974, the Yanga family purchased the FBA from its former owners and Dr. Ismael E. Yanga, Sr. became its first President. 

In 1977, the Secondary institution expanded to include tertiary courses. The initial courses offered were Midwifery, Secretarial Education, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Agriculture, Commerce, Nursing, Seaman Training Course and Vocational Courses.

In 1987, the name of the institution was changed to Dr. Yanga’s Francisco Balagtas Colleges (DYFBC).

The current President, Dr. Marciano D. Yanga was installed as the second President of the school in an investiture ceremony held on August 12, 1993. 

From a small institution with only a few hundred students in its initial years of operation, the College steadily grew in enrollment and gradually expanded its curricular offerings.  At present, many additional courses are offered by the Institution. These are Education, Arts and Sciences, Computer Science, Computer Technology, Accountancy, Marine Transportation, Marine Engineering, Hospitality and Restaurant Management, Tourism and Caregiver Course.

Inspired by the increasing recognition of the school and its educational programs by the community, the Administration then decided to open Pre-Elementary and Elementary Education Departments.

Through the years, the school has been an integral part in the formation of many young men and women of Bulacan, metamorphosing into successful practitioners in their various fields of interest.

In 2001, the name of the institution was changed again and became Dr. Yanga’s Colleges, Inc.

At present, the Institution with its new name has grown into a complex of different departments/colleges with a population of over four thousand students.

To date, the Dr. Yanga’s Colleges, Inc. is continually pursuing notable programs and plans which are all geared towards the successful attainment of its avowed mission.

Indeed, from its inception in 1974, the school has tirelessly involved itself in providing an encompassing, relevant, quality and affordable education that has helped many Bulakeños in transforming their simple lives into successful and inspiring stories and whose dreams have turned into inspiring realities today.
