St. Philip's School and Community Center, founded as a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas, acknowledges that next to God, an excellent education is the most effective means of developing human capital. As a school we provide an unparalleled exemplary college preparatory education fueled by a confluence of spirituality, self-determination and service to others. As a Community Center we provide services and resources that assist families in enhancing their quality of life. We embrace the potential schools have to impact their neighborhoods through the provision and accessibility of compatible social services.
We provide a stellar academic experience to children ages 2-12, while focusing on their spiritual, social, and emotional needs in a fun and nurturing environment. The St. Philip's student loves learning, enjoys school, and is intrigued with mastering developmental skills along the way. Our mission makes it possible for us to expose children to a rigorous faith-based education while promoting the need to not only serve our community but also be involved.
The philosophy of St. Philip’s School is to accept students from a range of abilities and backgrounds, recognizing each child as a unique creation entitled to love, respect, and opportunities for safe and challenging passage through the early years. The school’s small class sizes and varied educational techniques enhance and develop the unique learning style of each child and aims to install and strengthen qualities that promote a secure and responsible adult life.
The core curriculum is enriched with specialty programs such as Spanish, music, physical education, chapel, art, library and theater. Technology is appropriately integrated at all levels through our Early Childhood computer labs as well as technology courses for Kindergarten through 6th grade. Each classroom is equipped with an interactive smart board panel. This increased technology enables supplemental enhancement to the reading, math, science, and social studies lessons. It provides opportunities for students to practice skills and build their understanding of concepts covered in class.
Through our project-based learning curriculum students in all grade levels are challenged to become not only problem solvers but to be problem seekers that are able to contribute to their community by making a difference. Additionally, the curriculum has a strong emphasis on 21st century skills where collaboration and critical thinking are essential components to the learning process.
