The plight of San Isidro’s youth, who had nowhere to go for secondary education after World War II, was the prime factor that led to the founding of General de Jesus Academy. It opened in June 1946 and became General de Jesus College in 1997.
With excellence as one of its core values, the school submitted its High School program to voluntary accreditation in 2002. Its application was approved by the Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities-Accrediting Agency, Inc.(ACSCU-AAI). On February 16-20, 2004 the High School was granted Level I Three-Year Accreditation Status.
A Resurvey visit of the High School Program was conducted on February 5-9, 2007. The High School was granted a Level II Five-Year Reaccreditation Status with Interim Visit. On May 10, 2012, ACSSU-AAI granted the High School a Level II Five-Year accreditation status. In May 2014, the High School Program this time was granted a Level III status.
Side by side with its accreditation status is the provision of different avenues in order to produce graduates who are instilled with nationalistic, moral and spiritual values and who are equipped with Life and career competencies. The following are some of its additional offerings:
Free Enrichment/Remedial classes in English and Mathematics from Grade 7 – 10.
Free Reading program in English and Filipino for slow readers
