The school is now offering several courses: Hotel and Restaurant Management, Culinary Arts, Care Giver Course, Information Technology, Computer Secretarial and Computer Programming, which are accredited with the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

After the school secured more permits other courses like Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management under the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the school administration decided to change the name of the school into Our Lady of Manaoag Montessori College (OLMA) as part of its expansion. This too, is a way to bringing back the glory to the founders' patron Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan, although the institution is a non-sectarian school.

Mrs. Mary Jane Capili had been the head of the HRD for 12 continues years of different hotels and restaurants and other industries before she decided to join Mr. Capili in running the school. The couple’s mission is to share to their students the skills and knowledge they have in the field of customer relations and hospitality and for their students to land on jobs both local and abroad after they graduate.

With expertise in their fields combined with achievements and experiences, the officials and founders of OLMA are certain of success of the school. Vamos OLMA!!!
