Secretariat for School Education (CSSE)


The Conference Secretariat for Education (legal title: Jesuit Conference of India-Educational Section and later known as JEA) was constituted in 1961 with the aim of guiding and animating all Jesuit schools to be ‘schools with a difference’ through the Jesuit way of education in the context of a changing socio-political-cultural scenario in South Asia. All Jesuit schools of South Asia are members of the Secretariat. The Secretary works in close collaboration with the Province/Region Coordinators for Education (PCEs/RCEs) in order to animate Jesuit schools to a deeper understanding of the Jesuit vision in Education especially through the implementation of the Characteristics of Jesuit Education (1986), Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (IPP – 1993), and 10 Global Identifiers of Jesuit Schools (2021). Every year the Province/Region Coordinators meet with the Secretary to review this apostolate and plan for the future. The Conference Secretary is the ex-officio National Coordinator of the Federation of Jesuit Alumni Associations of India (JAAI).
