1977  Liberal arts and vocational courses were added due to dramatic increase in student enrollment.  Eventually, OSN renames into Olivarez Junior College, with Mrs. Petronila Ignacio as the first academic vice president.

1978  Colleges of Commerce and of Liberal Arts and Sciences were instituted, along with additional paramedic courses. Kindergarten and grade one classes were also offered to kickstart the Elementary Department.

Dr. Pablo Olivarez purchased a two (2)-hectare lot adjacent to Olivarez General Hospital.

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.

This became the present site of the two-storey high school building which was completed in 1979,

1980  In 1980, the school changed its name to Olivarez College and has kept the prestigious name until now. Third and fourth year high school students were admitted in the following year.

October 1990  OC invites the academic accreditation pioneer Philippine Association for Colleges and Universities on Accreditation (PACUCOA) to orient its administrators on the accreditation process.

February 1991  A PACUCOA team arrives for consultation meeting with administrators, faculty and staff.

1992  Colleges of Commerce and of Liberal Arts receive their Level I accreditation status from PACUCOA in July. College of Nursing gets the same accreditation status two months after.

28 May 1993  the College of Commerce and Liberal Arts were granted by PACUCOA their Level II accreditation status.

Students converge in their respective nooks in the student lounge which is a venue for them to bind with their friends and for their academic activities.

Perhaps, no other school or universities in the Philippines can outdo the athletic facilities of Olivarez College. The five (5) indoor and one (1) outdoor tennis courts are comparable to leading country clubs in the country, not to mention the twenty five (25) indoor badminton courts. The semi-Olympic sized indoor swimming pool is one of a kind. The five thousand (5,000) seating capacity coliseum is also state-of-the-art. The school prides itself with its own resort that offers leisure and serenity for the students, faculty, staff, and visitors alike.

In 2008 the new building which houses the College of Business, College of Arts and Sciences, and the main library, apart from the three (3) other libraries has been completed.

The areas of faculty and instruction are just two (2) of the attestations of the accolades of Olivarez College. A highly qualified and competent faculty pool is maintained. Majority of the professors in the College Department attained their graduate degrees from prestigious colleges and universities. In the Basic Education Department, all teachers have passed the Licensure Examinations for Teachers (LET). Faculty members incessantly pursue their quest for learning through research which the school administration supports through the allotment of annual budget for research.

Consistently, the average passing rate of the students in the National Board Examinations is over and above average the national passing rate especially in Radiologic Technology, Midwifery, Physical Therapy, Nursing, and Education. Many of the Olivarian graduates are now gainfully employed in the country and abroad. These are only but proofs of the Olivarian excellence.

The extent that the school facilities, services, and resources support the school’s objectives certainly passes the test of excellence. Olivarez College is committed to and is an active participant in community services, growth and development. The school has established linkages with various colleges, universities, agencies, and other institutions. Residents of Sitio Sto. Nino located in San Dionisio, Parañaque City was the beneficiaries of the various outreach programs of the school. Moreover, a free preschool program is offered to the children of this adopted community. Likewise, they avail of the use of some of the school facilities. Other community programs include cleaning and greening, livelihood and entrepreneurship, computer literacy, health and sanitation, and physical and spiritual development.

2003  It was in the year 2003 when the Board of Trustees decided to put up another campus in Tagaytay City, thus, the birth of Olivarez College – Tagaytay (OCT). According to Dr. Pablo Olivarez, OCT will serve as the key to the advancement of the educational, cultural, moral, economic and social well-being of the community.
