Our School. Our Family. Our Community.
We take great pride in seeing our students develop into fine Christians and a part of the Catholic community of faith. We look forward to continued support from our Catholic community and our parents, teachers and students. Working together for children has made our school successful. Our school serves approximately 30% non-Catholic students with 70% of Catholic students coming from the parishes of St. Philip Neri, Midwest City; St. Andrew, Moore; St Paul the Apostle, Del City; and St. Teresa, Harrah.

Charity, Humility, & Excellence
St. Philip Neri Catholic School places a strong emphasis on the social and emotional well-being of students, teaching fundamental skills necessary for wellbeing and life effectiveness. These skills improve the quality of learning and life of young people and the communities in which they learn and grow.
Growing In Faith
We take great pride in helping our students develop into devoted Christians and active members of the Catholic community of faith. For our students and staff, prayer and faith are an integral part of every school day as we follow God’s guidance in the conduct of our daily lives.
Growing In Service
Service is one of our primary missions, be it service to others or service to God. Our students are taught to look outside of themselves with compassion and generosity toward others. Students lead community outreach projects that benefit programs like the parish food pantry and Mercy Hospital’s Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit.
Growing In Mind
The teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church and the values of Christian living permeate the school day. This high priority is expressed through worship, prayer, religious education classes, and the general climate of the school. St. Philip Neri Catholic School offers a balanced academic curriculum that includes the following subjects: religion and liturgy, science, art, music, language arts, math, social studies, Spanish, and physical education.
Students also have opportunities to extend the challenge of the curriculum by participating in academic competitions such as the science fair, the Archdiocesan spelling bee, art contests, essay contests, National History Day, and Future City.
Growing In Body
We offer a wide variety of athletic and sporting options for our students, including co-ed soccer, girls’ volleyball, and boys’ and girls’ basketball. More than just physical exercise, our athletic programs are designed to foster an enjoyment of sport competition. We also instill in our students a spirit of sportsmanship and fair play. Middle school boys have the opportunity to play football and baseball in a league against other private and public schools.
Our News & Announcements
Keep informed about the activities and events of our school with our school newsletters and announcements.
Tomorrow night Father Wood and I will be hosting a reception to share information about the Tax Credit Scholarship. Taxpayers in the state of Oklahoma can receive a tax credit on their Oklahoma taxes when they contribute to this scholarship fund. This is an easy way to donate without it costing a lot of money out of your pocket. This is a tax credit–not a deduction–up to $2000 depending on your marital status. You do not have to itemize to claim the credit. The qualifying dollar amount you give will be taken directly off the taxes you may owe or will be added to the amount of your refund. Please feel free to join us (adults only) tomorrow night (Thursday, November 18) at 6:30 pm in the Activity Center.
Two tickets remain unclaimed from the Halloween Trunk or Treat: #697410 for the Blessed Wreath and #697416 for the Read and Play Basket. I have listed the costume contest winners below–for real this time!
The Game Truck (reward for the chocolate sales) will be here on Friday afternoon, November 12. The king and queen of chocolate will be announced at morning assembly this week.
We are still addressing some of the kinks in our new dismissal procedure. I sent an email earlier today outlining modifications to the process in the south parking lot. If you have not already, please see that email. Thanks for your help in making this transition.
Students may dress out of uniform on Friday if they have had no uniform infractions since October 1. Please remember as always: no spaghetti straps, no tank tops, no inappropriate sayings, no short shorts, no crop tops, no jeggings, no leggings, no yoga pants. If you have a doubt about what your child wishes to wear, please don’t let him/her wear it. Children may wear their shirts untucked on this day.
