The story of Bulacan Agricultural State College, a product of decades of educational and sociopolitical metamorphoses, is humble and remarkable. It is a 60-year old state-funded institution of learning situated in Brgy. Pinaod, San Ildefonso, Bulacan.

 

     Established in 1952, the Institution started as the Plaridel Community Agricultural High School (PCAHS) located in Brgy. Bintog, Plaridel, Bulacan. Soon after, PCAHS was renamed Bulacan Provincial Agricultural High School (BPAHS) having just about 100 students. A growth in the student population occurred as students arrived not just from local communities but from other municipalities in the province as well. On 20 June 1953, its name was again changed to Bulacan National Agricultural High School (BNAHS) by virtue of Republic Act 948.

 

     On 8 June 1955, then Pres. Ramon DF. Magsaysay signed Proclamation 163 reserving around 192.5 hectares of the Buenavista Estate for BNAHS. By virtue of Republic Act 2416, BNAHS was converted to Bulacan National Agricultural School (BuNAS) on 21 June 1959.

 

     In 1960, the two-year Associate in Agriculture program became part of the curricular offerings of BuNAS; the first tertiary education program offered in the school which eventually led to the offering of the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture degree with majors in Agronomy and Animal Husbandry.

 

     Cognizant of the prevalent agriculture education and training needs of Bulakeños at the time, Hon. Ricardo C. Silverio, then Representative of the 3rd District of Bulacan, authored House Bill No. 2389 which proposed for an expanded educational program for BuNAS. With the bilateral approval of both Houses, then Pres. Fidel V. Ramos signed Republic Act 8548 officially converting BuNAS into a chartered state college known as the Bulacan National Agricultural State College (BNASC) on 24 February 1998. Over time, its name was changed to Bulacan Agricultural State College (BASC) by virtue of Republic Act 9249 signed by Former President Gloria M. Arroyo on 19 February 2004.

 

     Situated between the country’s capital Metro Manila and the Province of Nueva Ecija, it opened its doors in 1952 and 60 years later, it continues to be devoted to discovering answers to the profound challenges of this generation and training students for leadership in today’s multifaceted world. Furthermore, BASC has grown to be a regional leader in higher education and remains to be recognized for offering excellent agricultural education, interdisciplinary partnerships and innovative research programs.

 

     The College still supports competent collaborators from different backgrounds to work together with the Administration in the direction of feasible targets. It advocates alliance and modernization across conventional hindrances of education, generating exceptional individuals who pass on their mark to the world. Most of all, BASC continues to uphold its pledge to students, viable research and education.

 

     Like every distinguished education institution, BASC equally pondered and operated upon the bigger world. Its groundwork later became potent and creative. Personnel, students and alumni, partners and stakeholders, and allies have united for this grand educational endeavor. BASC would not be BASC without their dreams, service and allegiance.

 

     Now, its educational calling is to help students by coaching them with leadership and problem-solving proficiency and principles of quality, moral conduct, responsibility to humanity and faithfulness to their potential jobs. Everything is being done to train students for sensible global citizenship and leadership by combining sustainability, public responsibility and esteem for varied outlooks all throughout their curriculum while they acquire deep professional competence.

 

     At present, the College has two campuses, both of which are located at the 3rd District of Bulacan. The Main Campus is located in Brgy. Pinaod, San Ildefonso while the satellite campus was established in Brgy. Sapang Bulak, Doña Remedios Trinidad (DRT) in 2005 which is aptly called the DRT Campus.

 

     At BASC, we believe that every student, staff and client brings a unique aspiration. All are welcomed and encouraged to carry out accomplishments they feel can play a part to self, community, country and international progress.
