Catholic schools have made a significant contribution to education provision in Lebanon for centuries. In contemporary times these schools are called on to provide academic excellence while aiding in the restructuring process of Lebanese society. This mission was even more crucial during the Lebanese post war phase (after 1990). This article gives an overview of the school system in Lebanon as a background to the role, organisation and structure of Catholic schools. The article identifies the motives that shape the educational role that the Catholic church has played in schooling in a multi-faith society. In particular, the role and task of the Catholic school focuses on its unique spiritual and moral dimension.
