          Filamer Christian University has a student population of more than 4,000.  Its school site is located in the 5th most livable provinces in the country, in Roxas City, Capiz, Philippines, as cited by the  In more than five hectares, its main campus situated on hilly terrain with several Centenarian buildings, declared “historical landmark” by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) are interconnected by steps and cemented walks.  Of late, it acquires properties for its annex campus and built new buildings for its needed expansion. The surrounding trees provide a healthy “pollution free” environment. Added to it is a 17-hectare university property developed into an eco-tourism farm located at the Brgy. Dinginan, Roxas City.
           Claiming rich and momentous historical existence, Filamer, short of Filipino-American, began in a small and unpretentious way as a home for orphans in August, 1904. Modest as it may until now, but Filamer has been granted an autonomous status and most of its programs are accredited ranging from level 2 to level 4.
 Today, Filamer Christian University, with its core values of Spirituality, Service Excellence and Social Responsibility, and where “Quality Education under Christian Nurture” became its way of life, envisions itself to be globally-linked Christian university as it initiates collaborative linkages and partnership with the national and international organizations.
