St. Philip’s School and Community Center, founded as a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas, acknowledges that next to God, an excellent education is the most effective means of developing human capital. As a school we provide an unparalleled exemplary college preparatory education fueled by a confluence of spirituality, self determination and service to others. As a Community Center we provide services and resources that assist families in enhancing their quality of life. We embrace the potential schools have to impact their neighborhoods through the provision and accessibility of compatible social services.
WE BELIEVE children and families have the right to a neighborhood that provides safety, opportunity and hope. Healthy neighborhoods create opportunity pathways for people of all backgrounds, improving well-being and providing access to quality housing, good schools, jobs and amenities.
– A person’s zip code is the most powerful single predictor of health and opportunity.
– Socio-economic and racial diversity provides cognitive, social and economic benefits for ALL children and families.
– Intergenerational neighborhoods—where people of different ages reside together—create safe, stable communities that support overall well-being.
A healthy, economically vibrant & diverse community that celebrates its rich history and provides opportunities for residents of all backgrounds to live, work, play and thrive.
