The college was initiated and established by Late Rev. Pastor Peter Pevi. (The founder of Calvin College of Education Service Ltd) in 1997. The school obtained approval to take off, at least with arts based courses from NNCE Abuja in the same year. However, due to lack of infrastructure and other logistics, the official take off was in the 2000/2001 academic session at its temporary site (the Calvin Foundation Sec. School) running an evening session. Although, it started with less than thirty (30) students, it operated under the schools of Arts and Social Sciences and Education.
Presently, the school of languages has been created and the College offers eleven (11) subjects with education combined into different courses. These include: CRS, Social Studies, Economics, Political Science, History, Primary Education Studies, Geography, English Language and Mathematics. Students enrolment has also increased to a greater number. Part of the College has now been moved to its permanent site located at KM4 along Naka/Aondoana Taraku Road.
For now that the College has not obtained its autonomy, it is affiliated to the Kogi State College of Education, Ankpa which moderates all the examinations written in the school and awards certificates to deserving graduates. It is also working towards the accreditation of more courses in addition to the ones offered.
