Sts. Philip and James has a long history of educating children from the Bronx and Westchester. It opened in 1948 and today serves Pre-K through eighth grade students from the neighborhood as well as children whose parents work in the area.
As a small Catholic school with one class per grade, Sts. Philip and James has the feel of a close-knit family. All children are offered individual attention in our constructive, nurturing, and safe environment.
