Ss Philip & James School
- Saints Philip and James Elementary School is an academic institution, which provides students, with a strong moral and intellectual foundation, within an, essentially, Catholic-Christian environment.
- We are committed toward growth in leadership, as well as in fostering, academic opportunities, which will enable our students to develop spiritually, intellectually and socially.
- Administrators, teachers and parents are mutually supportive in emphasizing the implementation of contemporary pedagogical state and archdiocesan standards, as pertains to teaching content and methods.
- The mission of Saints Philip and James Parochial School is directed toward providing a solid academic foundation, for our students, so as to prepare them for a personally fulfilling, successful and value-based future.
- These values are based in the humanist tradition of the Catholic-Christian faith.
- We believe that quality Catholic-Christian education is an education of the entire human person and as such requires a particular set of educational priorities, which serve to address the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical needs of our student body.
