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.
