La Consolacion College – Novaliches (formerly known as La Consolacion College - Deparo), is one of the 24 schools owned and administered by the Augustinian Sisters of Our Lady of Consolation (ASOLC). It was founded in February 1995 and incorporated by the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 30, 1995, and is the first Catholic Educational Institution in Novaliches.

The LCC-N is also known as LCC-Deparo, but its name was changed into LCC-Novaliches to avoid misconceptions about the difference with the LCC Deparo, Caloocan and the LCC Caloocan (near the City Hall), the LCC-N is a member of the ISBVL or the Inter-School Basketball and Volleyball League.

Location and Facilities[edit]

LCC-N has the largest area among all branches of ASOLC Schools, it is a 5-hectare campus situated along the Villa Maria Subdivision, Bgy. 168 Deparo, in the boundary of Novaliches, Quezon City and Caloocan City that has 3 buildings. The Sto. Nino building houses the pre-school and primary and primary grade school pupils, the Mother Rita Barcelo Building that houses intermediate and high school students, Science and High School Computer Laboratories, T.H.E laboratory and Student Service Unit, the Our Lady of Consolation Building, also known as th Administrative Building houses the Internet and College Computer Laboratories, School Library, CIMC, Admin. Offices, Registrar, Faculty Room, HRM and TSM Laboratories, and Speech Lab.

The campus offers Catholic education for the children of the nearby areas of Bagumbong, Deparo, Llano, and even the near portions of the province of Bulacan.

Misconceptions[edit]

Since there are two La Consolacion College campuses in Caloocan, the one in Novaliches is commonly mistaken to be the campus in front of the Main City Hall of Caloocan in District 2. A reason why LCC-Deparo has changed its name into Novaliches is to avoid the misconceptions since the term Novaliches which covers north Caloocan and north Quezon City is much more familiar to many than to Deparo which is the name of the big Barangay in District 1 Caloocan.
