Kolehiyo Ng Subic (KNS) is the first community college in the province of Zambales. Mayor Jeffrey D. Khonghun, the President Emeritus is the acknowledged founder and father of the school. With the spirit and fervor of the pioneering members of the faculty the clamor of the Subiqueños to have a college of their own was realized. KNS is primarily built and meant for poor students.

When the good mayor assumed office in 2001, one of his administration’s development pillars is focused on the improvement of education. The future of the youth was not so promising during that time as Subiqueños find difficulty in acquiring decent and stable jobs after graduating from high school. It was a disheartening experience for the Mayor to see his constituents turned down for employment due to academic deficiency. This sad experience led the Mayor to entertain thoughts of starting a community college. Hence, consultation with the department heads and researches were done, resulting to that bold dream of establishing a local college.

School operations would require professionals and so the Board of Trustees was formed. “Pamantasan ng Subic” was created and operated as a special project under the Mayor’s Office. Immediately after the enactment of the Ordinance, the Board of Trustees was convened and compositions, functions and appointments were stipulated in an Executive Order. To ensure its sustainability, the funding of the College was appropriated under the Mandatory Operating and Other Expenses (MOOE) of the Municipality’s fund. The Community College “Pamantasan ng Subic” was established through Regulatory Ordinance no. 2002-05 enacted by the Sangguniang Bayan of Subic, Zambales last September, 2002 at Subic Municipal Hall under the administration of Former Mayor Jeffrey D. Khonghun.

After some deliberations between the Commission of Higher Education (CHED) and the Sangguniang Bayan of this Municipality, Regulatory Ordinance no. 2002-06 was enacted last November 20, 2002 at Subic Municipal Hall that has the provision of changing the College’s name from “Pamantasan ng Subic” to “Kolehiyo ng Subic“. It was Mayor Jeffrey D. Khonghun who thought of the name “Kolehiyo ng Subic“. The pioneering themselves conducted high school visitation and rode bancas just to inform potential enrollees. The people of Subic were at first hesitant and wary of such a huge project.

On 2003-2004, the first batch of KNS students stayed at EDO building located at the Sta. Monica Subdivision, Brgy. Sto. Tomas for two years. The courses offered were: Bachelor in Elementary Education (GEED), Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSED), Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA), Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), and Bachelor of Arts in Social Science (BASS). The number of students was around 300. In 2004, KNS found a home in Wawandue, Subic, Zambales. TESDA courses were added: Computer Programming (ComProg), Computer Secretarial (ComSec), Computer Technician (ComTech) and Tourism and Restaurant Management Operations (TIIRO). Initially ten new classrooms, a computer and THRO laboratory, a library and a separate building for the Admin were constructed. Another additional thirteen classrooms followed and the latest structure to be built is a school stage. Indeed, more conducive compared to the rented campus at Brgy. Sto. Tomas.

On its tenth year, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) informed the Mayor’s Office of the need to create Kolehiyo Ng Subic as a special Department of the Municipal Government of Subic, Zambales. In compliance to CHED, the Municipal Government of Subic, Zambales enacted Regulatory Ordinance No. 2012-05, creating the Kolehiyo ng Subic as a department and economic enterprise of the Municipal Government of Subic, Zambales. The ordinance further stipulates that, the President Emeritus, Mayor Jeffrey D. Khonghun shall be consulted on major decisions that may affect the overall direction of the institution.

The stability of Kolehiyo ng Subic was further strengthened as the next Mayor Jay Khonghun, envisions the school in a more lasting perspective. He firmly believes that it would be more beneficial for Subic to invest on education because the “return of investment” will be more enduring with educated and skilled constituents.

As of school year 2018-2019 the original number of 300 enrollees ballooned to 2,459 enrollees as of 1st Semester, A.Y 2019-2020. Many students who enjoy the privilege of studying at KNS also came from nearby localities. To accommodate the continually increasing number of students, classes are held in three sessions: morning, afternoon and evening classes. The Business Education Department already produced CPA’s and what is phenomenal is the big number of LET passers compared to other colleges in the whole region. Employment rate has increased as job seekers coming from Subic now have additional academic background in their credentials. Truly the fulfillment of the founder’s vision of “Giving Access to Quality Education for All” in consonance with the DepEd objective Education for All (EFA) 2015. First was a dream, then a vision, now a reality.
