The Foundation was conceived and founded by the late Commodore JAIME C. JIMENEZ, Sr., a retired officer of the Philippine Navy, Chief Marine Officer, and a serious campaigner for quality education. He was the former President of the Philippine Maritime Institutions (PAMI), a conglomeration of maritime education in the Philippines and Chairman of Philippine Commission on Government Reorganization (PCGR). Commodore Jimenez, believed that the youth must be given the best education so they will become effective leaders of tomorrow. Hence, in 1974, he opened the Mariners Polytechnic School in Manila with an initial enrollment of 35 students.

Commodore Jimenez decided to transfer the school in the Bicol Region to help fellow Bicolanos develop into quality seaman. From the first batch of 52 Bicolano seaman cadets, the enrolment continuously grew that paved the way for the birth of the three school campuses at Naga City. Despite its being identified as a maritime school, the three schools offers both land and sea-based courses.
