Over the last few centuries the Spanish education system has been characterised by the maintenance of a duality of education centres distinguished by the ownership model: public and private; the numerous studies carried out on these models have focused more on public institutions. This article attempts to analyse, from a historical and descriptive perspective, the origin and development of the private education model in the context of the autonomous city of Ceuta in the contemporary era. The investigation leading to this study has focused, fundamentally, on the educational action of the three private centres of Catholic religious ideology: Inmaculada College, San Agustín College and Sta. Maria Micaela College, which were founded at the end of the 19th century, and today have an important role in education. The study on these centres has been carried out applying the quantitative model, via the development of a series of questionnaires applied to the sectors most representative of the centres, in order to analyse the current situation, its relationships with ownership and thus to draw conclusions. A qualitative analysis has also been carried out via the Case study technique applied to each centre and the individuals responsible for their management.
