Rooted in Catholic faith and values, faculty, staff and parents partner to create an inclusive and nurturing learning environment. St. Philip’s School attends to the development of the whole child, through the pursuit of academic excellence and personal enrichment.

St. Philip’s is a Catholic school that offers a comprehensive, rigorous educational program that incorporates faith and values into the curriculum and student life. In partnership with parents, we provide opportunities for all students to achieve success. Our students are encouraged to be well-rounded individuals and life-long learners who practice respect, responsibility, and empathy. We challenge each child to reach his/her potential and to demonstrate spiritual, intellectual, social, and emotional growth.

Our Parents Community
As a new family coming into the school during COVID, we have been really impressed with the dedication and creativity of the principal and the staff dealing with an unprecedented situation with professionalism and grace. Very happy to be part of this community and our daughter is thriving!
St. Philip is more than a school, it's a community. In addition to the high amount of familiarity and friendliness, there are festivals, discussion groups, information sessions, volunteer opportunities, and other ways to participate in the community. The teachers put the students' best interest as their first priority. I frequently recommend St. Philip to everyone I meet in Noe Valley (independent of faith)
The strong community is why we choose to send our children to St. Philip School! We love that our little ones feel happy, safe, and excited to go to school each day! What more could a parent ask for?
St. Philip’s offered everything that we were looking for, a school within walking distance, strong academics, a warm and welcoming parent community, and caring teachers. We were especially impressed with how the school quickly adjusted to COVID offering distance learning and then safe in-person learning. We now have all three of our children at St. Philip’s and could not be happier!
