SPN SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY The administration and faculty of Saint Philip Neri School hold as Primary, belief in a loving God who is Creator and Father of all, in Jesus, who is our Savior and Brother, and in the Holy Spirit who continues to guide and give life to His people. We believe that parents have the primary responsibility for the education of their children. The school, Church, and civic community are obliged to support and assist them in this process. We believe the Catholic School is a model Faith community which teaches Catholic values and provides opportunities to practice a Christian way of living. It is also a learning community, which offers an environment in which students can develop their potential. We believe that the faculty has a specific responsibility to instill in each student an awareness of the value and rights of each cultural group. We must protect these rights by preparing our students to become aware of their self-worth as well as their responsibility to their fellow man.
