The history of La Consolacion College goes back to March 12, 1919 when the first group of Augustinian sisters with Sr. Tomasa de la Sagrada Familia as superior, arrived in Bacolod, after a two year sojourn in Sibalom, Antique where the presence of a Catholic school was strongly opposed by the Aglipayans. The Bishop’s palace then became its first school building, where ten years later LCC graduated its first batch of Grade School and High School students. March of 1929 marked the first graduation.
From the Bishop’s residence, LCC moved along Justicia and Washington St. (now Galo and Gatuslao) where an imposing two storey L- shaped school building was constructed. With the rise of this new structure, LCC offered its first collegiate course, the elementary Teacher’s Certificate in 1938.
Through the war years, the school was abandoned temporarily. Then post war era followed the rapid growth of the school from its varied course offerings to the different academic and non- academic programs and services in its curriculum. For the first time in 1948 LCC departed from its former tradition and established a Boy’s High School which later commenced the entry of male population in the college halls.
In 1964 laid in the new page in the history of the school when a four- storey building which was to house the Boy’s High school was constructed in Rizal St. This was considered as LCC’s architectural contribution to the developing Bacolod. By then, LCC’s architecture department was formerly recognized by the government making LCC the lone school in Western Visayas to offer BS in Architecture.
Today, LCC stands as the bastion of Christian education, a spring flowing with graduates, equipped with academic excellence, social consciousness and Gospel values; committed to the task of social transformation as they go out to take their roles in the society.
