A Letter from the Principal
Welcome to St. Philip Neri Catholic School! I am Mary McCoy, principal of St. Philip Neri. I have had the privilege to be a part of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis for the past twenty-one years. My career with the Archdiocese has allowed me to be a part of St. Malachy, St. Mark, Central Catholic and St. Philip Neri School. I am currently in my fifth year as Principal of St. Philip Neri.
St. Philip Neri School has been committed to educating children in grades PK-8 on the near eastside of Indianapolis since 1910. Its rich tradition of providing academic excellence, truly rooted in the Catholic faith, has continued for over 100 years. I am blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of the St. Philip Neri tradition.
Our school theme for the year 2012-2013 is “Catholic Social Teachings around the World at St. Philip Neri”. Our goal is to model and teach our students about the Catholic Church and its teachings. Throughout the year we will learn about the Church’s Catholic Social Teachings and strive to implement these teachings into our lives. We will “travel” around the world and study how the Catholic Social Teachings are being lived out in other countries. Everyday we begin our day with prayer and teach our students the teachings of their Catholic faith so they can continue to grow in their relationship with Christ. As a Catholic school we guide our students in their faith and teach them to live each day centered on Christ’s teachings.
