St. Philip’s is a small, independent elementary school with one classroom of each grade, PK-3 through Fifth Grade. This is a community that prizes learning for learning’s sake, and where students, faculty and administrators strive daily for improvement and meaning. By means of traditional disciplines, St. Philip’s academic program builds a solid foundation for continuing education beyond Fifth Grade.
The School aims to encourage the natural curiosity of children and to foster a genuine love of learning. This is a school that seeks not only to provide children with the tools, methods and strategies necessary for the acquisition of learning but also to engender in each student a sense of wonder; an insatiable curiosity and a deep appreciation for the ideas, emotions and values expressed through the rich curriculum and community relationships.
