Overall Rating

Overall, I believe the school is a good stepping stone towards a University degree. It is well suited for those who are not looking for a four-year degree as well. Tuition cost is very low compared to surrounding Universities. Students can count on saving money by completing their basics at this school.


Overall Rating

I've had some of my friends that have completed their classes in St Philip,and they told me that this was the best place to go and continue my education. so i have decided to go back to school in the fall.
