Hello and Welcome!

Mrs. TenerI am so glad you are visiting the St. Philip Neri Catholic School website. 

I am proud to be a member of the Class of 1971. I know that I am blessed to have St. Philip Neri as a touchstone in my life. I have taken a circuitous route to return as the principal of St. Philip Neri. Many people have asked me since returning if I knew some day I would come back as the principal. I answer with a resounding, “No.” But, I did know from a very early age that I would always be connected to Catholic education somehow. And so, here I am.

God and our Catholic faith are an integral part of our daily activities and lessons here at St. Philip Neri. This is a school with committed teachers, strong academics, integrated technology, and Catholic values. I would like to invite anyone interested in our exceptional school to explore our website to find out more about us. Better yet, call us at 405-737-4496 or email me at btener@spnok.org for a visit.

Educator of the Year


October 2, 2015, Midwest City, OK: St. Philip Neri Catholic School teacher, Mrs. Monica Schmidlkofer, is the recipient of the 2015 Archbishop Paul S. Coakley Educator of the Year Award. Officials made the announcement Friday afternoon after reviewing nominations forms submitted by the entire Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.

According to nomination criteria, the award is presented to an individual involved with Catholic School education in the Archdiocese and recognizes one person who truly represents the Mission Statement of Catholic Education: the development of the whole person of the student, spiritually, intellectually, personally, socially and physically.

Schmidlkofer is a graduate of the Northeastern State University and is certified with the Oklahoma State Department of Education. “I am honored to be in the company of the other two finalists: Mr. Brian Boeckman of Mt. St. Mary and Mrs. Robin Bailor of St. Mary’s in Guthrie,” humbly stated after the presentation of the award among her colleagues.

 On the heels of the Pope’s visit to America, St. Philip Neri students began their mission to better the environment and develop the academic research needed to once more be successful in national academic competition.

St. Philip Neri Students Prepare for Future City

The St. Philip Neri Future City members are defending their regional championship title awarded in 2014 for Best Essay. According to their website, “Future City is a cross-cultural program that lets students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades do the things engineers do: identify problems, brainstorm ideas, design solutions, test and retest, build and then share the results.”


St. Philip Neri School’s Pray Walk Talk

St. Philip Neri students 1st -8th grade participated in “Pray Walk Talk” last week.  The event was comprised of three segments:  prayer and reflection, exercise and communication.

St. Philip Neri School’s Pray Walk Talk

The experience began on a perfect fall day in the school parking lot with an introduction by Community Faith Nurse, Angie Tomlinson, R.N,  “As a school, we strive to nourish our students’ mind, body and spirit.  Our Pray Walk Talk retreat gives students an opportunity to incorporate all these aspects into one activity.”

Father Fuller then provided his blessing on the student body urging the youth to challenge themselves, “May we adjust to the physical challenge, but also to experience other things as well, that we may experience time, geography, and distance differently.”
