Established on March 12, 1919, as Colegio de la Señora de la Consolacion by three Augustinian sisters Sor Tomasa de la Sagrada Familia, Sor Maria Teresa de Jesus and Sor Alfonsa de la Santisima Trinidad, the college is the oldest institution of higher education in the province.[1]

LCCB offers preschool, elementary, junior & senior high school, short-term, undergraduate and post-graduate courses. The school has three patrons - Our Lady of Consolation, St. Augustine of Hippo and St. Monica.


Upon the request of Jaro Bishop, Dennis Dougherty, the three sisters began apostolate work in Negros due to the significant Aglipayan presence in the province. On July 15, 1919, Colegio de la Señora de la Consolacion accepted its first 86 students, 36 of whom were interns who lived in the school dormitory. It started as an all-girls school back then.

The school is named in honor of the Virgin Mary, Consoler of the Afflicted.
