CEAP is the national association of Catholic educational institutions in the Philippines. Founded in 1941, it now has 1,345 member-schools and 120 Catholic school superintendents. The schools include 44 Higher Education Institutions (HEI), 107 graduate schools, 266 combined basic education and HEI, 709 basic education, 280 pure high schools, 622 elementary and 642 pre-elementary schools (SY 2010-2011).
CEAP is a voluntary organization operating through national commissions and committees and regional educational associations located in the 16 regions of the country.
It represents the interest 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, constituent 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 building.
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), Fund for Assistance to Private Education (FAPE), Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC), and Private Education Retirement Annuity Association (PERAA).
It is a member of the Association of Foundations and networks with many other nongovernment organizations. It is affiliated with the International Office of Catholic Education (l’ Office International de l’Enseignement Catholique-OIEC) and with the International Federation of Catholic Universities.

The CEAP is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors composed of 16 regional trustees (from the National Capital Region, Regions I to XII, Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, Caraga Region, and Cordillera Administrative Region), five trustees-atlarge, 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 9 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 Commission on Religious Education 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 is the voice of Catholic education. It brings to the attention of government, NGOs and the general public, the collective views and proposals of the Catholic education sector, discusses problems affecting the development and survival of member schools, as well as critical issues affecting the social, political and moral life of the nation.

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 out.

An Association which upholds quality Catholic education in the spirit of communion and service, guided by Gospel values and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

CEAP seeks to
• Advocate for government and NGO support to small member schools on issues affecting Catholic education
• Ensure effective and efficient delivery of services and programs in the national and regional levels
• Work towards financial viability of member schools
• Find ways for collaborative efforts among member schools
• Increase its visibility in national and regional levels while maintaining credibility and integrity in projecting its views and positions to the general public. It will work for empowered and self-reliant CEAP regional associations.
