The school and its aims
Historical notes

In Ceglie Messapica, in the school years before 2000/2001 there were only some branches of five high schools with their head-offices based in other towns, such as Francavilla Fontana, Ostuni and Brindisi.

Since 2001 these schools have enjoyed autonomy and an only school district has been set up.

Since 2002/2003 its headmaster has been Mr Francesco Caramia and the school has been named “Cataldo Agostinelli” for the famous mathematician born in Ceglie in 19th century.

For three years the “Cataldo Agostinelli” high school has enriched its educational offer with the hotel-management school.
