About MVC

MVC’s History

Mountain View College (MVC) is a Seventh-day Adventist institution envisioned to serve the educational needs of the young people in the South Philippines. However, as the College grew, students from all over the Philippines and from foreign countries came.

Located on a 2, 500-foot plateau, MVC faces Mt. Kalatungan and Mt. Kitanglad. The College sits on 1, 024 hectares, which includes farmlands, forests, and ranch lands ideal for industries and, more importantly, for a training ground for students’ hands-on experiences. The land has an ample supply of water that makes it possible for MVC to have its own hydroelectric plant providing the campus populace with enough electricity besides abundant water supply for all college facilities.
