The initial motivation behind the founding of our international schools was the inciting, ever-gnawing awareness that our region, to preserve its unique identity and to advance authentically Catholic liberal arts thinking, was in great need of a proudly professed Catholic liberal arts school system. To be faithful to its classical roots, Catholic liberal education must represent and serve bi-culturally and internationally all the citizens of our beloved Lower Rio Grande Valley/Rio Bravo cultural homeland. 

Mission: The mission of the Pharr Oratory of St. Philip Neri School System is to promote the formation of Christian character, Catholic lay leadership, Christian fellowship and community service by integrating the gospel message with a liberal arts educational program in the spirit of joy of St. Philip Neri.

Vision: Every Oratory student believes the Gospel message and lives it by making a difference in the world, as each student journeys to his/her ultimate end, heaven.

At FUMC Day School we also strive to serve parents by providing opportunities for education and fellowship.  We teach our children through play and give them the pre-learning skills necessary for later years.  We believe in child-centered play based learning which allows children to learn at their own individual pace through the natural process of play.  We also utilize “Handwriting Without Tears” curriculum, and incorporate the Weekly Reader Themes.  Weekly activities focus on gross and fine motor skills, social interaction and creative expression.  During their day, children have an opportunity to play and interact with others their age while fostering independence, curiosity and problem solving skills.
