In 2010-2011 St. Philip School celebrated 50 golden years of teaching hearts and minds. We work with parents to promote the development of the whole child in a faith-filled community. We offer a well-rounded program that provides opportunities for spiritual growth and academic success for all and encourages students to share their talents and gifts with those in need.
Accessible, Safe, and Secure
We are geographically accessible to as many students as possible. Our campus is located in Camp Springs, Maryland, near Branch Avenue (MD Route 5), the Capital Beltway (I-495), and the Branch Avenue Metro Station. Our close proximity to Andrews Air Force Base allows us to educate many children of the men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces. Within our schools, the programs we offer meet the needs of a wide variety of students. Our students are able to learn, immersed in a nurtured and safe environment.
