Positive School Environment

To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.

Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.

St. Philip Neri School achieved the BRONZE PBIS award in 2016-2018 and SILVER in 2019.


St. Philip Neri School is dedicated to educational excellence, and as a means to verify our continued success we have been reviewed since 1983 by an outside accreditation agency.  In 2010, having met the requirements established by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission and Board of Trustees. St. Philip Neri School was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement.

What does it mean to be an accredited school?

An accredited school:

  • Is devoted to its mission.
  • Knows itself.
  • Keeps its promises.
  • Accepts an objective peer evaluation.
  • Is recognized internationally.
  • Plans for the future.
  • Actively participates in the responsibilities of the profession.

Accreditation is not required by any state or federal law, instead, AdvanceEd accredited schools are making a voluntary commitment to an on-going school improvement process designed to assure the public of the quality of a school’s offerings. Accreditation is a peer-review process in which members of the educational community, who understand what makes a good school good, lend their experience and expertise to validate a school’s vision of itself.


All Archdiocesan high schools and elementary schools are accredited as a system through Cognia. Every five years, the Department of Catholic Schools completes a system-wide accreditation review, which culminates with a visit by a Cognia External Review Team. Each school is evaluated based on the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.

Governance Model

St. Philip Neri is an Archdiocesan Collaborative School (ACS), which is a model of shared governance developed by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The ACS model utilizes a shared governance model that fosters unity through the collaboration of stakeholders in support of Catholic schools. The model allows decisions regarding day-to-day school operations to be made at the local level, while individual schools and school administrators are supported centrally from the Department of Catholic Schools and the Catholic Center’s Central Services in areas such as academics, finance, development, enrollment management and marketing.
