Shaping Spirits, Minds & Futures
Welcome to Saint Philip Neri!

As principal of St. Philip Neri Catholic School, it is my pleasure to welcome you.  Educating students since 1910, St. Philip Neri School has been committed to educating students in its rich tradition of providing academic excellence truly rooted in the Catholic faith.

 Borrowing from the Sisters of Providence, our theme for the 2015-16 school year is “Breaking Boundaries, Creating Hope through the Gifts of the Spirit.  Emphasizing the Gifts of the Hoy Spirit, we will reflect each of the seven gifts and use them as a guide to break through the boundaries that limit us and create hope and  in our lives, our school, our families and our community. We begin each day with a Scripture reading and prayer so that our students can grow in their relationship with Christ. As a Catholic school we guide our students in their faith and to live each day centered on Christ’s teachings.

St. Philip Neri School welcomes students of every religious belief, race, and ethnic origin. Our faculty and staff are committed to providing the highest quality Catholic education for each student. Using best practices as well as deep-rooted traditions, we are dedicated to equipping our students with the necessary skills and tools in order to be successful 21st century  learners who are active in their faith and grown to be contributing adults.

We recognize that each child is unique. Our faculty is dedicated to providing meaningful, student centered learning experiences that are tailored to the needs of each child.  All faculty members have been trained in teaching children for whom English is a new language as well as native English speakers.

Please take a moment to review our website and join in celebrating the blessings here at St. Philip Neri School.  If you have comments, questions, or would like a tour of the school, please email me at or call 317-636-0134.
