*Parishioner status is granted to those families registered in the parish for at least one year (since January 2015). The family must have a parish budget and must have contributed a minimum of $12.00 per week. Families contributing less than that amount ($624) will not be granted parishioner status for the 2016-2017 school year.
With approximately 210 students from Pre-School through Grade 8, our current student body is primarily comprised of students from:
- North Smithfield
- North Providence
- And several other communities
The majority of the students are parishioners of Saint Philip Church; a small percentage of them are parishioners of other area Catholic churches; and approximately four percent of this year’s students are either non-Catholic or non-affiliated

Saint Philip School does not discriminate against students on the basis of race, color, ethnic origin or handicapping conditions with regard to admission policies, educational policies, or any other school-administered programs.
