Who We Are

St. Philip’s School educates young people for lives of hope, joy, meaning and purpose to serve the common good. Rooted in Catholic faith and values, our outstanding faculty, staff and parents work together to create a warm and nurturing learning environment that attends to the development of the whole child and instills a lifetime love of learning.  

Located in the heart of Noe Valley, but with students from all over the Bay Area, we offer a K-8 rigorous academic curriculum that includes Spanish, Art, Music, Technology and Physical Education, along with an array of after-school enrichment activities offered on-site and a comprehensive K-8 sports program. Our students graduate to attend San Francisco’s top high schools. We invite you to find out more about our special school community.

Distance Learning

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Philip’s School has implemented a new distance learning model to continue providing a high quality educational experience for our students during this challenging time. Please follow the embedded link to learn more.

Strategic Planning

In March 2019, our community initiated a robust and inclusive strategic planning process to guide the future for St. Philip School. Please use the embedded link to read more about the plan.

School Wide Learning Expectations

As part of the strategic planning process, our community has also codified a set of school wide learning expectations known as the BRUINS criteria which are the basis for the Bruins Awards that are presented each month to one student in each grade.
