St.Philip the Apostle School Board

The St. Philip School Board is a board of limited jurisdiction that supports the School through strategic planning, budgeting, communications, fundraising, and policymaking.  The School Board regularly works on these areas of responsibility and advises the Pastor and Principal in other areas upon request.  The Pastor has the ultimate discretion to ratify or not ratify policies and decisions formulated by the Board.

For 2016-2017, the School Board is comprised of 21 voting members, the Pastor, the Principal (ex officio), and former Board President (ex officio). Two-thirds of the Board members are parishioners/community members and one-third are parents (including the PTO President). Members are elected for one three-year term with the possibility of a second three-year term.

The Board meets monthly during the school year.  Meetings are generally at 4:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Parish Center.

Strategic Plan

The current Strategic Plan approved by the Board has six goals related to:   (1) communicating to the St. Philip community and beyond; (2) creating a development plan to ensure the School's sustainability; (3) nurturing and supporting School faculty and staff; (4) becoming a top Catholic school nationally in using technology to better the educational experience; (5) generating revenue while maintaining affordability; and (6) evaluating the Archdiocesan vision of an extended school year.  The Plan was approved by the Board in 2011 and will be in effect from 2011-2017.  The full Strategic Plan can be found here: St. Philip the Apostle Strategic Plan

Board Committees

The Board works through the following standing committees and subcommittees:  Policy & Planning, Finance, Executive, Development (umbrella committee for PTO, Blessed Are the Children, Endowment and Advancement), Public Relations, Board Affairs, and Technology.


The Board welcomes applications and nominations for committee and Board membership. Applications are generally sought in the spring for the following school year.  The Board is grateful for your feedback and involvement as we work together with the School administration, faculty, staff, PTO, and the St. Philip Parish to provide the best Catholic education possible for the children of our community.
