St Philip's is an independent, co-educational day/boarding college run by the Uniting Church. It offers secondary education from Years 7 -12.
A vibrant community characterised by the diversity of students' backgrounds and aspirations, St Philip's is renowned for its diversity of programs and opportunities.
The student body reflects Alice Springs' multi-cultural mix of people, most of whom have come from somewhere else. Their families include scientists, linguists, teachers, nurses, tradespeople, sociologists, anthropologists, palaeontologists, computer experts, defence personnel and a large American community servicing the US-Australia joint defence force facility at Pine Gap.
Conscious of its geographic isolation St Philip's works hard to ensure this is not a limiting factor for its students. From Years 7 to 12 students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities and opportunities which broaden their horizons.
