Did you know that you can make St Philip Neri School more affordable and receive a substantial Oklahoma Income Tax credit? The Catholic Schools Opportunity Scholarship Fund was created to take advantage of the OK Equal Opportunity Scholarship Act that allows both a 50% tax credit as well as an itemized deduction on Federal and State income taxes.
Furthermore, you can designate up to 75% of your contribution to specific Catholic schools, including St Philip Neri or one of the 3 Archdiocesan high schools, or split the 75% among schools.
Scholarships will be awarded based on financial need.
- The limit of the credit is $1000 for individuals and $2000 for married filing jointly.
- The Oklahoma Legislature has appropriated a set amount to tax credits under the act. If the amount of credits claimed exceeds this, the credit you receive can be reduced.
- To preserve the intent of serving those with financial need, designated amounts may be redistributed.
- There are slight changes this year. If using a brochure form, be sure it is the Spring 2016 version.

Since we first opened in 1954, our goals have remained steadfast. Our mission is to serve families in developing and nurturing the whole child to achieve academic excellence. The School community provides a safe, Catholic Christian environment in which each child can grow to be a contributing member of the Church and society.
For more than 60 years, St Philip Neri has carried on a tradition of excellence, preparing students for upper-level coursework while building a strong foundation of faith. Jesus Christ will always remain at the heart of all we do, whether in academics, athletics, or community service. St Philip Neri is more than a place to learn, it is a place to grow.

Many people expressed strong interest in plots and pairs of plots, and so far no one has asked for something wanted by another. For assistance in selecting a plot, call the church office and they or Larry Hopper will help you. A Cemetery Map shows the plots, but you must see Larry or visit the office to see which are available. Lots numbered in red are currently being sold, those numbered in blue are in a wooded area to be sold later. Orange and green shaded areas indicate walkways and areas reserved for the altar, Columbarium, and trees.
Plots are $500 each (no tax), please call the church office before you come down or mail in a check.
