World Citi Colleges (WCC) is an educational system with sister institutions and campuses. Envisioned to be centers of excellence in healthcare, business, IT, and education, World Citi Colleges have campuses in Antipolo, Rizal; Guimba, Nueva Ecija; and Quezon City, its mother campus. Also, part of the system is its aviation schools in Caloocan, North Manila and Binalonan, Pangasinan. World Citi Colleges’ roots can be traced to the establishment of the Quezon City Medical Center (QCMC) in June 15, 1971. Starting out as a 100-bed capacity hospital, Quezon City Medical Center operated a school offering the Liberal Arts Program in Psychology as its pioneer course in the College of Arts and Sciences in 1978. After the amendment of its articles of incorporation in 1979, QCMC became Quezon City Medical Center and Colleges, Inc. (QCMCC). It was also the same year that it opened its doors to students of nursing offering a two-year preparatory nursing course. The following year, the school offered a four-year course in Nursing after being granted a government recognition by the Minister of Education and Culture. March 1986 marked an important milestone in the school’s history with the acquisition of QCMCC by the Guico family. The new management ushered in a new vision of growth driving changes in the school and hospital becoming World Citi Incorporated now World Citi Group. This became the launchpad of several other colleges within the system. In its commitment to contribute to the advancement of humanity by providing excellent and holistic education, WCI acquired two more schools: Holy Trinity School in Caloocan, now WCC Aeronautical and Technological College; and Westminster College which became WCC-Antipolo Campus. It was also the same year that WCC got an ISO 9001-2000 Certification. The new millennium also saw the rise of WCC by being a key role player in the Hospitality and Management education with the establishment of its School of International Hospitality Management in its Quezon City campus. 2010 also marked the acquisition of E.R. Dizon Colleges in Guimba, Nueva Ecija to become World Citi Colleges-Guimba campus offering a full-range of basic education, tertiary education, and graduate school.

THE BE-ATTITUDES OF A WORLD CITIZEN
In my heart and mind, Christ's love and sacrifice is treasured. In words and in deeds, the love that was given to me through the cross is shown to my fellowmen. The truth that has set me free remains the light that guides me in my walk.
Inspired by the words of Christ, "I came not to be served but to serve," I help the community through an excellent, competent, humble, and righteous direction. Marked by my deep desire to look after those who are in need, as a World Citizen, I plant the seed of my youth to the fertile soil of authentic Christian leadership.
In all toil and labor, I give my best effort. Where there is a need for sacrifice, I am always ready to offer that extra-mile. I shun off mediocrity but rejoice in the success of my pursuits.
I am a person of strength, yet my heart remains broken before Jesus. I realize that God-given might shall be for those who need it the most. I am always ready to give a helping hand, no matter how costly the sacrifice maybe. I am gentle in spirit, an epitome of unconditional love and tenderness.
The love of God has made me a complete person. Being such, I cherish a life that shows the virtues of Christianity. In home and school, in every work or play, wherever and in whatever circumstances I am in, I become the salt and light that Christ commands everyone to be. I set the example of a Godly attitude.
PHILOSOPHY AND CREDO
World Citi Colleges is an institution founded in the uncompromising belief that God is the Lord of history and therefore nothing happens in human life without divine providence and intervention. WCC stands on the conviction that its educational vision and mission constitute a high calling and ministry. Bound by its dedication to educational excellence, it is mandated to lead in holistic and professional education that is Christian in foundation, nationalist in perspective, competency-based and research-driven in curriculum, scientific in emphasis, global in scope and culturally diverse in orientation. Therefore, we envision WCC graduates to be truly Christ-centered in commitment and character, proven in professional competence and Filipino in identity and consciousness. As World Citizens, WCC alumni exceed standard expectations in their fields of specialization. With superior academic training and intellectual prowess, they rise above the throng in their passion for achievement, always excelling in performance and leadership. Imbued in their WCC culture is the profound concern for ecological and socio-economic justice, human life, and dignity. Thus, World Citizens respect all people as persons of sacred worth and because of this they cross boundaries to remove all prejudices on the basis of creed, class, race, or gender. This lifestyle and philosophy is rooted in the WCC Christian vocation embodied in its college hymn: "Called to serve and to care."
