A Letter from the Principal
As principal of St. Philip Neri Catholic School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school. 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 who began our school, our theme for the 2013-2014 school year is “Breaking Boundaries, Creating Hope by following the Saints”. Our goal is to model and teach our students about the Catholic Church and its teachings. Throughout the year we will learn about many of the saints of the Church and strive to use them as models as we work to break through the boundaries that limit us and create hope in our lives, our school, our families, and our community. Everyday we begin our day with prayer and teach our students the about the saints and 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.
St. Philip Neri 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 current best practices as well as deep-rooted traditions, we are dedicated to equipping our students with the necessary skills and tools to be successful 21st century learners, active in their faith who grow 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.
Thank you for considering St. Philip Neri School for your child’s education. Please take a moment to review our website and join us in celebrating the blessings here at St. Philip Neri School.
