Our Mission
The School of St. Philip is a Catholic community dedicated to educating the whole child to greatness of mind, body, and spirit.

Our Philosophy

The School of St. Philip is a Catholic community that makes faith and high academic standards the priority. Our goal is to challenge the mind and inspire the soul of everyone who enters our building--students, staff, families, and visitors. Our mission is based on the following beliefs: 

  • We believe that each child is a unique gift from God with varied abilities and we strive to meet them at their level to reach their full potential. 

  • We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and we value the family-school partnership. 

  • We believe in educating the whole child -- academically, spiritually, morally, physically, and emotionally. 

  • We believe each child will grow in their relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ and a knowledge of the Catholic faith through participation in prayer, liturgy, and instruction.

  •  We believe that values such as honesty, responsibility, compassion, and empathy should be modeled and infused in daily instruction.

  • We believe in promoting self-esteem in a nurturing environment where all feel welcome and secure.

  • We believe in the value of good study habits, time management, and lifelong learning.

  • We believe that children be encouraged to be engaged in social justice and service to school, home, community, and world.

  • To encourage each child to foster a relationship with God and a knowledge of the Catholic faith through prayer, liturgy, and instruction.

  • To lead children to make choices and judgments in the light of the Gospel values taught by Jesus Christ.

  • To model and teach the value of good study habits and life-long learning.

  • To teach the basic skills and content as developed in the curriculum.

  • To open as many avenues of exploration as possible to allow each child to express his/her ideas.

  • To promote self-esteem in a loving environment where each child feels secure.

  • To teach and exemplify that a Christian shows courtesy and respect to others.

  • To promote awareness of social justice and global issues.

  • To develop strong spiritual and moral values in each individual.

  • To promote a healthy life-style through awareness of the value of good physical fitness.
