Camiguin lies on the Bohol Sea some fifty-four kilometers southeast of Bohol and ten kilometers north of the province of Misamis Oriental, its mother province.The island is pear-shaped with a total land area of 301.64 square kilometers. It is composed of five municipalities, namely Mambajao, the capital, Catarman, Sagay, Guinsiliban and Mahinog.

Before its creation as a regular province on January 7, 1966 by virtue of R.A. 4699, Camiguin was a part of Misamis Oriental.Thus, all schools in the island were under the administration and supervision of the Schools Division of Misamis Oriental.

The School Division of Camiguin was created with four school districts, namely: Mambajao, Mahinog-Guinsiliban, Sagay and Catarman in 1968. However, the school districts of Catarman and Sagay were redistricted to compose the District of Catarman, thus, reducing the number of school districts into three. On July 14, 1988, there was another redistricting such that the districts were composed of Mambajao, Mahinog, Sagay-Guinsiliban and Catarman. But , in 2008 until to date, the districts become five in which the five municipalities are represented, namely Mambajao, Mahinog, Catarman, Sagay and Guinsiliban.

To date, DepED Camiguin is under the stewardship of Reynaldo E. Manuel, Jr., Ph.D., CESE, OIC Office of the Schools Division Superintendent.
