The Cuncolim Educational Society was established on 2nd October 1963 with the objective of imparting quality education to the students to foster their development through knowledge that would make them enlightened citizens in a progressive society.
The first move in this direction was the establishment of the Cuncolim United High school in the year 1964. The Cuncolim United Higher Secondary School with Arts and Commerce streams was opened in the year 1981, followed by inclusion of Science Stream in June 1986. The gradual expansion is found with the introduction of Vocational courses in the year 1993. The Cuncolim Educational Society’s College of Arts and Commerce was established in the academic year 1987-88. The College offers Degree course in Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce. Today it is one among the premier Educational Institutions in Goa.
The CES College saw the light of the day mainly due to the vision, untiring efforts and dynamism of late Adv. Pio F. Lawrence, the Chairman of the Cuncolim Educational Society.
