ICAJE
INTERNATIONAL
COMMISSION ON THE
APOSTOLATE OF
JESUIT
EDUCATION
ICAJE
• Advisory council to the Secretariat.
• The members of the Commission are appointed by
the Secretary for Education, with the recognition
and approval of the respective Conferences of
Provincials.
ICAJE Mission
1. To serve as a link between the Secretariat and the
regions.
2. To communicate the Jesuit Conference, the Provincial
Delegates and the School Presidents or Rectors the
concerns, challenges and possibilities of Jesuit
Education as it is perceived by Fr. General.
3. To communicate to the Secretariat the concerns,
challenges and accomplishments of the Jesuit schools
in the world.
ICAJE Mission (cont.)
4. To contribute to the challenge, for Jesuit Schools,
to become a global network. TODAY WE WANT
OUR SCHOOLS TO BE SEEN AS A NETWORK
IN A WAY WE WERE NOT BEFORE. Not just as
an association, not just as one school reproduced
many times. We need to keep the tension: being
active part of a global network and being local.
5. To contribute to the renewal of the Apostolate of
Jesuit Education.

Educational Strengths
• A mosaic of
– committed people
– cultures and traditions
– languages (more than 15)
– school systems
– projects
• Ignatian Pedagogy is the substratum that enables us to work
together
Main Challenges
• HOPE : bring support and vision to the different provinces in a
morose European context
• CREATIVITY : strengthen the Jesuit European school network
without forgetting the local realities
• MISSION : deepen the link between Ignatian pedagogy and
spirituality
Major New Projects
• Conference for Deputy heads on the theme:
“Ignatian deputy, freedom in the everyday”
February 2013, LOYOLA (Spain)
• Conference for Primary heads on the theme:
“Time for ecology, time of hope”
October 2013, EL ESCORIAL (Madrid)
Asia Pacific
Statistics
• Countries represented: Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan,
Philippines, Timor Leste
• Total number of schools: 34
• Total number of students: 51,460
• Total number of staff: 3552 (Lay) + 82.5 (Jesuit) = 3,634.5
Educational Strengths
• Networking and Mutual Support among Provinces and Regions
in the Conference given the rich diverse cultures and developments
in the Region:
– Student Leadership Network to cultivate lgnatian leadership
among students. The fruit of the Fukuoka Colloquium in 2010
– The Advanced Teachers Program team from Riverview went to
Hong Kong and Manila to train our teachers
– IPP workshop in EAPI, Manila for teachers and regents of
Myanmar and East Timor. Teacher workshop of Japan Province
held in EAPI
Main Challenges
• Lack of Jesuit presence in some schools due to a shortage of
Jesuits and very few young Jesuits interested in the apostolate. This
leads to inadequate formation of our lay collaborators
• Very few Jesuit personnel carrying out considerable amount of
responsibilities while a good number in formation needing
mentorship in provinces/regions where Jesuit vocation is
relatively plentiful
• Impact of urbanization across Asia. Pop culture creating new
social values not fitting in our traditional values. Culture is changing
fast across generations. Big drop in vocation and church attendance,
especially in the traditional Catholic regions.
• The way we teach religion is not effective in sustaining our young
people in their faith practice. There should be a new way to teach
religion and celebrating the Eucharist.
Major New Projects
• Identifying the new Secretary for Education of the Conference and
setting up a working group to help the Secretary for Education
• Colégio de Santo Inácio de Loiola, Kasait, Timor Leste (CSIL),
being one of the three JCAP’s Frontiers in Apostolic Engagements.

Regional Context
•
Varied school contexts – Some of the Jesuit Secondary Schools in Africa
are situated in urban, middle class, professional and affluent contexts while
others are located in small towns, rural, unskilled and poor areas.
•
Fees – The schools located in the affluent contexts and are fully owned by
the Society charge school fees as high as $6, 000 (six thousand dollars) per
annum whereas schools in small towns and rural settings charge as little
$36 (thirty-six dollars).
•
Ownership – Most of our schools are owned by the Society of Jesus. They
are easier to run and they are the best performing of the Jesuit run schools.
But some of our schools are categorized as public schools, especially those
in Central Africa Province i.e. Congo Democratic Republic.
•
Public schools – The State pays teachers’ salaries and often employ and
fire the teachers. Where the State pays the salaries of teachers, it also
determines the schools fees students pay.

Main Challenges
•
Finance – Since we do not get any financial assistance from the
Government, we have to rely on the tuition. However, we cannot raise
school fees that much because many parents won’t be able to afford.
Fundraising for new projects and scholarships is a big challenge.
•
Staff development and Staff Formation – due to lack of resources
(financial and personnel), Jesuits and lay staff do not get that much of staff
development.
•
Political instability and prolonged political crises in some Provinces
affect school policies negatively.
•
Jesuit Personnel in our secondary schools are still very few.
Educational Strengths
•
Quality education – Our schools still provide excellent allround education. Some have become model schools that other
private school owners learn from.
•
Contextual needs – They also pay attention to the contextual
needs of the places they are located.
•
Model Students – Students are highly self-motivated and
disciplined.
Major New Projects
•
The Regions of Mozambique and Rwanda are planning to begin
secondary schools in the next couple of years. ACE Province has
plans to establish a secondary school in Angola.
• Some Provinces are setting up full time education teams, education
offices and pedagogical centres. They are also looking for funds for
these major projects.
• Networking and collaboration among schools are becoming
stronger.

Regional Context
Our Schools
• A voice for 2.5% Christians in India – Our presence and service
acknowledged.
• Service in Establishing the Kingdom of God – promoting the gospel
values, creating a better human society.
• 85% of our schools are aided-vernacular medium-providing
education for the poorer and lower middle class
• Various forms of educational Services- Eradicating illiteracy of our
country.
• Providing preference for Catholics- Building the Faith
Educational Strengths
• Small Steps - Every year at the PCEs meeting province-wise
reports on the implementation of targets are assessed, and new
targets and educational thrusts are set for the following year.
• Zonal Networking - Provinces within the zone are exhibiting
greater collaboration and networking.
• Meeting with School Core Team - The JEA Secretary visits
every province at least once in two years for appraisal on
educational thrusts.
• Formation programmes for students and teachers.
• Admission - Catholic students given preference.
Main Challenges
• Paper working, government approvals and bureaucratic roadblocks
are sapping the physical and emotional energy of many principals.
• Long-term Planning of schools is missing. Hence personal thrusts
and interests get priority rather than the province policy.
• Lack of affirmative actions in fostering collaboration
• There is lack of updating and innovation among the core team
members
Major New Projects
1.
Jesuit Schools Accreditation/Assessment - The focus is on
achieving benchmarks.
2.
Value Education/Catechism Classes - To ensure effective
Value Education/Faith Formation classes, Provinces will study the
current content and methodology and evolve effective strategies
to achieve the desired outcome.
3.
Eco-Concerns & Dialogue - Studies and projects to promote
eco-sensitive values, and educating students for dialogue.
