St. Philip's Episcopal School provides learning through exploration, scrutiny, and self-reflection. In every class, our teachers emphasize the strategies and processes involved in learning and self-growth, creating a unique opportunity to prepare our students to live thoughtful, creative, and fulfilling lives in a rapidly changing society. Below are the enrichment classes offered each week at St. Philip's.

Students attend Godly Play once a week. Godly Play is a method of a Christian education and spiritual direction for children ages 2-12. The goal of Godly Play is to teach children the art of using religious language-parable, sacred story, silence, and liturgical action to help them become more fully aware of the mystery of God's presence in their lives.
