The Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP) is the national
association of Catholic Educational Institutions in the Philippines founded
in 1941. It now has more than 1,525 member-schools and more than 120
superintendents of Catholic Schools. It is a voluntary organization which operates
through regional educational associations located in the 17 regions
of the country.
The CEAP represents the interests of Catholic educational institutions in national
and international fora; fosters unity of action with other organizations in educational
matters; and assists members, particularly those in mission areas
to achieve common and specific aims.
The CEAP is commissioned to advance and promote the teaching function of the
Catholic Church. It contributes towards the attainment of the objective “the
total development of the human person,” through a Catholic orientation in
accordance with the norms of the Church, consistent with national development
goals as expressed in the Philippine Constitution.
The CEAP promotes religious instruction as an essential element of Catholic
education, thereby contributing towards character formation and citizenship
Moreover, it strives to respond to social, political, moral and other critical issues
based on consultations with the different regions and calls for the collective
action of its members when the situation so requires.
CEAP is a non-stock, non-profit organization. It is represented in the Coordinating
Council of Private Educational Associations (COCOPEA), Private Education Assistance
Committee - Fund for Assistance to Private Education (PEAC-FAPE),
and the various Technical Working Groups and Committees of national government
agencies working for the interest of the private schools.
It is a member of the Association of Foundations and networks with many other
non-government organizations. It is affiliated with the International Office of
Catholic Education (Office Internationale de l’Enseignement Catholique-OIEC)
and with the International Federation of Catholic Universities.


The CEAP is governed by a 22-member Board of Trustees composed of 17
regional trustees (from the National Capital Region, Regions I to XII, Autonomous
Region of Muslim Mindanao, Caraga Region, Negros Island
and Cordillera Administrative Region), five trustees-at-large, and the
chairperson of the Superintendents Commission, which in turn elects a
set of officers. The Board is supported by a National Secretariat headed
by an Executive Director. The offices of the Executive Director, Membership
and Communications, Programs, Advocacy, and Finance and Administrative
Services are currently staffed by 16 personnel.
At the regional level, the regional directors work within particular structures
set up for coordination, planning and implementation of programs and
other local concerns.
CEAP has four commissions, and their functions are as follows: The Superintendents
Commission gathers all diocesan and congregational school
superintendents and works to support CEAP’s goals. The National
Christian Formation Commission formulates policies and programs
for effective religious education in member institutions, in consultation
with the Episcopal Commission on Catechesis and Catholic Education
and other offices of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.
The Advocacy Commission is responsible for the effective communication
to all concerned sectors of CEAP’s position on current issues and
problems affecting private education. The Retirement Commission administers
the CEAP Retirement Plan which provides retirement benefits
to faculty and staff of participating member-institutions.
CEAP Board members sit in the commissions/committees which discuss
policy matters regarding Personnel and Finance, Programs and Scholarships,
Membership and Awards, and Legal Matters.

The activities of the CEAP are financed by annual membership fees and nominal
fees, special assessments and contributions from member-institutions,
and by donations, grants, subsidies from national and international
sources—public, private or Church-related.

The Association provides programs and services to its member institutions as
well as affiliate regional associations in the following areas:

CEAP has consistently maintained the importance of widening the access
to and the promotion of quality, transformative Catholic Education in
the Philippines. CEAP’s National Advocacy Commission (NAC) has been responsible
for proposing to the CEAP National Board policies and advocacy
initiatives pertinent to Catholic Education in the Philippines and the CEAPidentified
priority issues (i.e. peace, judicial reform, education reform, mining
and the environment). NAC undertakes the research and consultation
requisite for such proposals. NAC disseminates, explains and advocates CEAP’s
positions. NAC attends CHEd’s, DepEd’s, or Congressional hearings and conferences,
and those of other pertinent agencies or other forums in the interest of
advocating or formulating CEAP’s positions, especially when these are threatened
by adverse public policies. CEAP is also the lead association of COCOPEA
in the area of Advocacy and Public Policy Development. NAC continues to
push for CEAP’s legislative agenda in the 16th Congress that would help CEAP
member schools achieve their work towards quality, transformative Catholic
Education in the Philippines.

Transformational Education
Specific programs for the thrust Continuing Education for Social Transformation
seek to institutionalize the need to respond to current issues in the
socioeconomic and political sphere. The objective being to broaden members’
awareness and understanding of issues thus paving the way for relevant and
proactive response and even a change in lifestyle and worldview. Current programs
include Environmental Education; Biodiversity and Sustainable Development;
Peace Education; and Management Development.

Catechetics & Religious Education
The Association promotes Religion as the core of the curriculum. It conducts
seminars and workshops to help implement the concept and assists
member schools in reviewing and strengthening religious education programs.
CEAP also supports and champions the Philippine Catechetical Apostolate
and Religious Education (PhilCARE) Foundation in its aim to promote
the development and welfare of catechists and religious educators.

Human Resource Development
CEAP initiates and organizes programs to update knowledge and upgrade
skills of administrators, supervisors, subject-area coordinators, faculty and
non-teaching personnel. It also provides leadership training for students.

Consultancy Services
Resource generation, financial management, organizational development
and legal matters are some areas where CEAP may provide advice and guidance
to its members.

Networking and Linkage-Building
The Association maintains linkages with various groups both inside and
outside the education sector. With limited funds of its own, CEAP relies on
resource sharing and the cooperation of other organizations and companies
to achieve its goals. In turn, CEAP contributes its capacities and strengths to
achieve common objectives which will benefit society.

To serve as instrument of linkaging and resource sharing within various
concerned sectors but particularly among the Association’s members, CEAP
maintains the Quarterly magazine CEAP Bulletin. It occasionally publishes
books and monographs related to Catholic education. Every two years, the
CEAP Directory containing updated information on member schools comes

A world transformed, a Philippines renewed by the people educated in
the principles of Communion and Service as taught and lived by our Lord
Jesus Christ and shaped by the missionary mandate of the Catholic Church.
• To promote solidarity among member schools through Catholic Education.
• To foster inclusive and transformative Catholic Education.
• To serve as steadfast and effective catalyst of change through education in the
different dimensions of human life.
