Speaker's Message



Tabuk Institute is a church-related high school under the United Church of Christ in the Philippines. It is non-stock, Non-profit and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It was founded by the late Fr. Buenaventura Munda, first pastor of the United Evangelical Brethren Tabuk (Protestant with the help of some church leaders and Dr. Witmer of Lubuagan EUB mission and bishop Fonceca).


The school was founded as a response to the clamor of parents and local church members to have a high school in Tabuk. Since before and after World War II, there were only two high school in the sub-province of Kalinga. Student of Tabuk were for study either in Baguio City or Kalinga Academy, a Protestant school or in St. Theresita’s High School of the Roman Catholic mission. At the time there were no vehicles going to Lubuagan so students had to hike with their weekly provisions. Besides the hiking difficulties, The local church members and friends in Tabuk clamored to have a high school opened in Tabuk. Pastor Munda responded to the express felt needs of the people by initiating the plan to open a school of the local church in Dagupan with the help of the missionary Dr. Witmer, Bishop Fonceca, and local church leaders like Pedro Balacang, Leon Bangisan, Marcos Diasen, Marcos Malaggay, Ceferino Ramirez, and may others who donated the first financial requirements to open high school.


             In July 1948, the high School, Tabuk Institute was formally opened with 23 students and their first classroom was the local church building walled with bamboo and roofed with cogon grass. Their first principal was Lauro Arizala.
