Christian Service at St. Philip the Apostle School

Published : Monday, July 16, 2018 | 3:35 PM

St. Philip the Apostle School’s mission is to provide an exceptional education by integrating Catholic values with high academic standards and service to others. This is reflected in our School-wide Learning Expectations. St. Philip the Apostle School students are expected to become young men and women who reflect moral and religious values by serving the community, exhibiting compassion, and seeking social justice.

The Christian Service Projects are activities done at each grade level and provide our students the opportunity to make a positive impact in the world around them.
