In the authors’ opinion, socio-cultural analysis can serve as a theoretical platform for comprehending pedagogical experience and providing an understanding of the theoretical and methodological basis of the educational models under consideration. The results of the analysis allow the authors to come to the conclusion that a comparative analysis of secular and confessional education provides a wide variety of options that are analyzed in close relation with the genesis of culture, science, and social thought, based on different priorities, and thus, to identify the main models of education. Carrying out the research of the specifics of the secular and confessional education models’ functioning, implemented in various world educational practices, the authors came to the conclusion that there is a «coordinate system» that determines the nature of existing models.
