TAYABAS CITY - Bishop Mel Rey M. Uy, D. D. led the groundbreaking ceremony for the Junior and Senior High School Building of Maryhill College Avida Campus on October 4, 2019, at Tayabas City.

After the ribbon-cutting, the construction location was blessed by Bishop Mel Rey. The signing of the cornerstone was done by the different stakeholders who will have great contributions to the fulfillment of the construction and expansion plan.

Stakeholders and attendees are Rev. Fr. Edilberto H. Jarapa; Rev. Msgr. Romel Ansay; Rev. Fr. Edwin Baruelo; Dr. Mary Rose Cabangon; Sr. Praxedes Tonogbanua, MCST; Rev. Fr. Roderick Mercurio, Parent Teacher Association President Christopher Ililigay; Alumni President Dr. Rolando Correa; Architect Bonifacio Magalona; Education Program Specialist II Joan Kathleen T. Brizuela with the administrators, teaching staff and parents.


The decision to expand the offering to junior and senior high school is due to the request of the parents who prefer to enroll their children near their house locations.

School Principal Hazel Hernandez explained that there will be three (3) additional buildings for the junior and senior high school. However, construction will be done in phases and the first building is expected to be finished by the next school opening.

Mary Hill College Avida Campus is currently in process of applying for government permit school year 2020-2021 and the first building will serve as classrooms for grades seven (7) and eleven (11) next school opening.
