School Notes:

St. Philip the Apostle Catholic School opened on September 19, 1960, with approximately 90 students in grades 1 and 2.  Classes were held in LaReine High School.  In September 1962, the present building was occupied and the school expanded through grade 6. By September 1964, the building was completed and grades 7 and 8 were opened.

Kindergarten opened in September 1986.  As enrollment grew, a new wing was completed in 1996 for grades 6, 7, and 8. The pre-kindergarten four-year-old program began in September of 1997.  The pre-kindergarten three-year-old program opened in September of 2007.

In 2010-2011 St. Philip School celebrated 50 golden years of teaching hearts and minds. We work with parents to promote the development of the whole child in a faith-filled community. We offer a well-rounded program that provides opportunities for spiritual growth and academic success for all and encourages students to share their talents and gifts with those in need.
