If you are looking for an outstanding and challenging school for your child, St. Philips is one you should strongly consider. The class size is important but its the individual attention the educators give that has contributed to much of their success. Our child is excelling far beyond what other children are doing their age. The teachers are extremely creative and the lesson plans engage the students 100%-they are fun for them while challenging their minds to learn about science, the world around them and understand and master important math concepts. They also instill a love for literacy and reading. It's truly a joy to see our child run to class!

St. Philip's Academy provides children with a worldly education. The staff works on educating and developing the spirit of every child. The Academic Dean at SPA is very knowledgable about the latest teaching strategies and does an excellent job of training the teachers on these teaching principles. Frisco is very fortunate to have such a wonderful school.

This school is great! The teachers and Academic Dean insure each individuals childs needs are meet. The student to teacher ratio is low. I have 3 children who attend St. Philips Academy and I am very pleased with their academic enviroment.

Our daughter has been at St. Philips for Kindergarten and she is reading at a high first grade level already. I know that is due to the small class size and teacher involvement. Her maturity and confidence is great and she has excelled beyond what we could have even imagined for our child academically. The support from the teachers is exceptional. Everything from science to math is high caliber and well worth every penny we spent.

St. Philip's Academy offers an excellent academic program. My child was reading above her grade level by the end of the first semester. Children are given individual attention and challenged to learn in an environment that makes them enjoy learning. Children grow spiritually in a setting that is loving and welcomes all those of Christian faith. They are taught the value of serving others. My child receives instruction in Spanish, art, PE, and has independent learning time on her own iPad. The school extends the learning experience beyond the classroom to include numerous field trips to pumpkin patches, the Dallas Puppet Theatre, area assisted living homes, etc. Parental involvement is encouraged and welcomed.

St. Philip's Academy may be new but the people there know what they are doing. From the way they greet the children in the morning to the way they plan and teach to the way they communicate with parents, the staff at the school show that they are doing what they do because of their love for God and children. If they had a second grade class this year, we would have chosen St. Philip's because there is nothing better around. You would have to drive to downtown Dallas to even come close to what they are doing at St. Philip's Academy.

My son is in the kindergarten class and we all love it!! St. Philip's Academy has an excellent curriculum with small group learning in many subjects including reading and math. They will be offering K and 1st grade for the 2012-2013 school year and adding a grade each year after. The class sizes are small with 2 teachers full time and frequently a 3rd teacher. Students receive a lot of individualized attention. Daily Christian chapel worship time with Father Clay and Mrs. Holton is as fulfilling for me as a parent as it is for the intended student audience. Parental involvement is welcomed and encouraged. Every child has an iPad as a supportive learning tool. Computers are located in the classroom as well. We look forward to starting our youngest child in the 2013 kinder class!

We moved our son to St. Philip's Academy mid year after being very displeased with our local public school. It has been the best decision we ever made. This school just started this academic year (they will have a K and 1st Grade in 2012-2013) and will grow to grade 5. The classroom size is small, there are always 2 teachers in the class, and sometimes 3. The kids get a LOT of one on one attention, christian faith is a part of every day starting with chapel each morning, they learn Spanish, and each get an Ipad to use for educational purposes. It is a loving environment and I can't say enough good things about this school. Come check them out if you are looking for an option to public school!
