Vision

Aldersgate College was founded in 1965 by pioneering Methodist lay-leaders led by Mrs. Pilar D. Galima and Mr. Froilan B. Calata. The school was named ALDERSGATE, after the street in London where John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, felt his heart strangely warmed, and realized that salvation can be attained only by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

The Experience at Aldersgate Street was the inspiration of this College, that whoever passes through its portals comes out transformed: morally upright and spiritually awakened- a brave and sagacious leader, with an enlightened mind, a compassionate heart, and able and ready hands.
