San Felipe Neri Catholic School started as a privately owned school located in the backyard of San Felipe Neri Parish in the year 1963. In the same year, Miss Rosa Salazar, President of the Confraternity of our Lady of Lourdes opened the San Felipe Neri (Parochial School) as a nursery center . In the year 1965, the school opened as an educational institution with the government permit to offer elementary education from the Department of Education.

In 1999, the management of the school was formally turned over to the Archdiocese by the Religious Missionaries of St. Dominic. Msgr. Salvador Jose was appointed as the director while Msgr. Gerardo Santos was appointed as the Principal. When Msgr. Salvador Jose was assigned to a parish in Makati City, Msgr. Reynaldo Celso was appointed as director of the school. Major renovations on the electrical system of the school including purchase of a generator and converting the electrical connection into three phase system took place.
