St. Philip’s College has a very rich history that began in 1898 by such visionary giants as Bishop James Steptoe Johnston, the founder of our college, and Artemisia Bowden, who for 52 years provided unparalleled leadership in advancing this institution.

As we move forward in our second century of student empowerment and educational excellence, I invite you to explore, discover, and pursue all educational possibilities that St. Philip’s has to offer.

Explore the endless possibilities for expanding your vision and dreams.

Discover new career options, we offer 154 degrees and certificate programs.
