St. Philip the Apostle Catholic School is participating in
Get Up and Give! North Texas Giving Day
run by the Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT) with the support of The Dallas Foundation and the Center for Nonprofit Management. On this day, St. Philip will receive bonus funds from CFT for every donation of $25 or more that is made through
www.donorbridgetx.org to St. Philip.
The bonus percentage that we will receive will be calculated after Giving Day by taking the total amount of matching funds available (over $1,000,000) divided by the total amount donated to all nonprofits on that day. The resulting bonus percentage will then be added to the total dollar amount given to St. Philip. Last year, the Communities Foundation of Texas raised $14.4 million through 37,000 donations that day.

Our vision at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic School is to create a safe, nurturing, and Christian environment that enables all of our students to reach their highest individual potential through excellence in academics, purity of heart, soundness of body, and devotion of soul.
The Importance of Catholic Education
Being Catholic is a gift of faith, hope and love; a life-time journey to experience and to live according to the identity that it signifies.
Education in Catholic schools—which includes a parish community and faith practiced in the home—exists to implement a specific educational ideal: to foster a deepening of faith and knowledge to be used to give witness to Christ.
Following the teaching of Holy Mother Church, Catholic education, then, strengthens Catholic Christians to live and to do their proper roles in the life of the Church in the world. It provides a sound knowledge of the Catholic faith and a sure understanding of Catholic moral and social teaching in the lifelong journey of prayer and contemplation.

Why St. Philip Catholic School
St. Philip provides excellent academic programs while catering to the needs and special talents of each student individually. We offer a traditional education, with a road map to success. (Higher Education, Alumni Associations and Professional Associations).
St. Philip teaches Christian values with an emphasis on tolerance and acceptance of differences. Students at St. Philip engender the values and morals of not only the Catholic faith but also as good citizens.
St. Philip provides a safe and secure educational environment. Unlike many public school systems which often experience pervasive discipline problems and exposure to drugs and other destructive influences, as a small, private school, our students remain relatively sheltered from these negative forces.
St. Philip develops the entire mind, spirit and body of each student. They are the future leaders of our society and community.
St. Philip has manageable class sizes and are limited to provide more individualized attention and a superior education.
