St. Philip & St. Augustine Catholic Academy

Founded in 2015, SPSA takes pride in being the number one elementary and middle school option in Southeast Dallas.
We are driven by our mission to promote Gospel values, inspire a love of learning, and uphold academic excellence in a nurturing community. As the only Catholic elementary and middle school option south of Interstate 30 (I-30) and east of Interstate 35E (I-35E), it is our commitment to our families to create an uplifting student-centered environment focused on individual learning styles to promote a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
Our legacy is grounded in providing a SAFE (Saints Advancing in a Faith-Based Environment), rigorous, whole-child education with a holistic, family-centered approach.
We understand the value of a strong community and its ability to help everyone succeed, and we cherish the unique opportunity we`ve been given to fundamentally elevate the trajectory of our 350 students and their families' lives.
Central to our efforts to provide a nurturing community is having the lowest tuition rate in the area with tuition assistance and scholarship opportunities for qualifying families.
Our vision is to graduate students who are critical thinkers, productive moral citizens, and spiritual leaders.
