St Philip Nerl School

Tel: (610)828-3082
Grades: PK-8 | 464 students
  • The purpose of St. Philip Neri School is to provide a foundation on which to build Catholic Christian values in each student.
  • Our first priority is to build Catholic beliefs, as handed down by the church, and to foster faith experience.
  • We educate our children for this world and the world to come.
  • We strive to give our students a solid set of religious, cultural, moral, and social values, which they can share with others.
  • We believe that for Christian values to grow, they must emanate from the home, be confirmed in the school, and provide the basis for a strong, vibrant Christian life.
  • Therefore, each student is "celebrated" as God's creation.
  • We see the Risen Christ in ourselves and others.
  • Parents, as primary educators, share their child with us.
  • We see and commit ourselves to provide the best possible development of the child.
  • Parents and teachers work together as a team for the benefit of the child.
  • Together, our goal is to build a community of faith and trust in which we can grow and learn.
