Welcome from the Head of School
Greetings Prospective Families,
We are excited that you have chosen to explore the wonder that is St. Philip’s Episcopal School! St. Philip’s is a vibrant community, filled with educators who are passionate and eager to stimulate young minds. Our Early Childhood curriculum capitalizes on the natural curiosity that is inherent in our youngest learners, while providing a variety of opportunities for exploration, discovery, and meaningful play. While academic rigor characterizes our curriculum and prepares our students for success beyond their time at St. Philip’s, our faculty and staff remain committed to providing opportunities for students to construct personalized learning at every level. Additionally, we are a community who worships together, and our Episcopal tenets and values are interwoven throughout our academics and extracurricular activities.
Our mission is to educate each child intellectually, physically, and spiritually in an atmosphere of acceptance and inquiry. It is a privilege to carry out that mission, and we hold ourselves accountable to that standard on a daily basis. There are many reasons to make St. Philip’s your child’s academic home. Our intimate class sizes, student-driven educational approach, and exceptional faculty and staff lay the foundation for student success. At St. Philip’s, all students learn, thrive, and grow.
While this school year may feel a bit different as we reimagine ways to introduce you to all that is SPES, we invite you to attend a virtual Open House to hear from a small cadre of our community and allow us to learn more about your family. We look forward to meeting you and discovering how we may partner with you on your child’s educational journey.
Jasmine B. Harris, EdD
