Saints Philip and James School is a parish school where Catholic tradition affirms that young people best realize their potential in a caring and loving environment.
The academic focus is aimed at the child's full development in mind, body, and spirit.
Since 1875, our tradition has encouraged the pursuit of excellence in a Christian value-centered learning environment.
We, the faculty, students, and staff of Saints Philip and James School are a Christ-centered community seeking to achieve the ideals of education and learning guided by a living faith and common worship.
Each person within our school is viewed as a unique and gifted individual made in the image and likeness of God, and chosen to be a brother or sister in Jesus Christ to those around them.
As we value this truth, all our endeavors, whether academic, spiritual, physical, or social, are dedicated to building up unity within our school, based on the hope of a better world, founded on the knowledge, promises and friendship of Jesus Christ.
In a particular way we seek to live out our Catholic Christian faith by participating in works of charitable service sponsored by the local churches and communities around us.
