Dear Families,

Thank you for your interest in Saint Philip Neri Catholic School! The environment at our school is a truly special one and I am honored to be the principal. We are a community that works together to educate the whole child – academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

Our academic program is rigorous and promotes the vital skills of communication, collaboration, problem-solving and critical thinking. We use technology with intent, infusing it throughout the curriculum to deepen student learning. All students benefit from enrichment classes, which include Spanish, Art, Music, Garden Science, Library, and Physical Education. In Middle school, students can choose elective courses like Broadcasting, Media Design, Public Speaking, Foreign Language, Genius Hour, Robotics, Programming, and Drama.

Additionally, we emphasize the role of leadership and community for all our students through service learning.  By participating in service learning our students learn how to help others locally and globally.

After school, sports programs abound! Whether it’s basketball, volleyball, cross country, track and field, or sand volleyball, we hope your child will join one of our teams. Other after school options include Math Club, Peer Tutoring, Chess, Choir, and Band. If you need extended care, our onsite Share and Care program is open before and after school.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like a personal tour of the school.

I hope to get the chance to welcome you in person soon.
