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 important 21st century skills. Starting even in our youngest grades, we teach our students to communicate, collaborate, problem solve, and think critically. We also recognize that technology plays a key role so we infuse it throughout the curriculum to deepen student learning. All students benefit from our enrichment classes, which include Spanish, art, music, garden science, library, and physical education. In Middle school, students can choose elective courses like broadcasting, public speaking, robotics, programming, and drama.

Additionally, we emphasize the role of leadership and community for all our students through service learning. With volunteer hours, as well as school and class projects, our students seek 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. There is also 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.
