Technically, the Vatican is the city-state in Rome where the Roman Catholic Church has its headquarters. But it is also commonly used to refer more generally to the Holy See and its various departments. While education is under the responsibility of the Congregation for Catholic Education, several other departments within the Roman Curia have responsibilities that are relevant for the aims of Catholic education.
In case this may be useful to some readers, this page provides links to selected Holy See institutions, regional Conferences of Bishops, and the Unions of Superior Generals.
The Holy See refers to the government of the Roman Catholic Church which has permanent observer status with the United Nations. The Roman Curia consists of the departments that assist the Pope in managing the Church.
