Grades: PK-8 | 208 students
At Saint Philip, each child is guided and cared for as a very special and unique creature of God who has been loved and forgiven through Jesus' death on the cross and resurrection from the dead.
Within our Christian environment, the spiritual needs and moral development of each child is the center from which our living, loving, and learning together is planned.
"Jesus Time" is an integral part of each day's program as our children learn about and experience God's love.
Saint Philip recognizes and supports parents as each child's main teacher.
The role of both the parents and Saint Philip is to support the child's decision-making capabilities.
Since children learn by doing, the Center focuses on the process of learning rather than the product.
