Religious study, practice, and belief are at the heart of daily life at Saint Philip the Apostle School. Faith development is presented through the study of scripture, the Catechism, and Catholic Church doctrine at developmentally appropriate levels. The school follows the archdiocesan Religion standards.

Daily prayer, weekly school Mass, Prayer Services, penance services at Advent and Lent, May Crowning, and the celebration of Feast Days are part of the school curriculum. The academic year is integrated with the liturgical year.

Students are encouraged toward Christian action and awareness of the needs of others by participating in a variety of activities such as cross age tutoring, Christian Service projects and Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Lenten projects.

Non-Catholic students are expected to participate respectfully in the religious program and activities.
