Lower School (1st through 3rd Grade)

The lower school program is focused on academic, moral and spiritual development in an environment that fosters each child’s natural love of learning. Ample opportunities to excel within a challenging and rigorous academic program include basic skills in reading, writing, mathematics, technology, social studies and science. The low student/teacher ratio of 1 to 12 allows teachers and students to work closely together, greatly enhancing the learning process at every age level.

By means of traditional academic disciplines integrated with opportunities in the arts and athletics, St. Philip’s emphasizes self-motivation while providing a solid foundation of skills and concepts for continuing education in the Intermediate division.
