Methodist Pilley Institute(MPI) superceded Pilley Memorial Secondary School, which was established in 1967 in loving memory of Mr. John Pilley.
Mr. & Mrs. Pilley were both born and educated in China and served as missionaries in Fuchow, China until they were forced to leave in 1949 due to the communist Take-over.
They were strong advocates of "Education for all", especially for girls, and for the poor. This was carried over from their experience in China. Thus, they both toiled selflessly in establishing schools and churches.
In 1960, Mr. Pilley passed away as a result of a massive heart attack. He was buried in Sibu. Mrs. Pilley left Sibu and resided in Nashville, Tenn. U.S.A. until 11 July, 2002 when she passed away at the age of 93. Although Mr. & Mrs. Pilley served as missionaries in the Methodist Mission in Sarawak for only 11 years (1949 - 1960), the impact of their love, service and sacrifice for the people of Sarawak, especially Sibu and Sarikei will be for time immemorial.
That is why in the mid 1960's when the Board of Education of the Methodist Church in Sarawak (SCAC) met to set up a private Methodist Secondary School in Sibu to cater for the needs of Form 3 to Form 5 students, it was unanimously agreed that the school be named "Pilley Memorial Secondary School".
In 1991, as response to the changes in the educational policies, MPI was set up to offer tertiary education namely, Diploma in Accounting, Diploma in Business Management and Diploma in Computer Science. It was one of the pioneer higher learning Institutions (IPTS) in the state of Sarawak, Malaysia.
Over the years, MPI has grown both in size and reputation, being well respected by students, parents and the local community of Sibu in particular and Sarawak in general. Many students have graduated with professional qualifications in the fields of Accountancy (e.g. LCCI, ACCA, CAT), Business Management (ABE, ICSA) and Computer Science (IMIS).
Many have also successfully pursued their further studies overseas or at other IPTS and are now gainfully employed and contributing to the continuous development of the country.
