CEIST

What is CEIST?

Five Catholic Religious Congregations engaged in post primary education for over three and a half centuries – Daughters of Charity, Presentation Sisters, Sisters of the Christian Retreat, Sisters of Mercy, Missionaries of the Sacred Heart – have, in the spirit of their Founders, together established CEIST – Catholic Education, an Irish Schools Trust, thus providing a new moral and legal trustee framework enabling their schools to continue to offer post-primary Catholic education into the future as a viable option and as an integral part of the Irish school system.

CEIST is built on the founding vision of the five Congregations, emphasising the dignity and rights of the human person, empowering the most vulnerable in society and enabling young people to become catalysts for social transformation throughout the world.

Mission

To provide a holistic education in the Catholic tradition.

The core values of CEIST promote the dignity of the human person, inspire a Christian vision of the world, encourage the search for truth, wisdom and beauty, and lead to the formation of mature personalities.

CEIST post-primary schools, through the whole process of teaching and learning, promote the Gospel ‘fullness of life’

  • by lighting the fire of faith, hope and love, in their students,
  • by leading them to forgiveness, compassion and peace making,
  • by developing in them hearts hungry for wisdom, spirits restless for justice, and minds inquisitive for learning.
