St. Raphael School is a coeducational parish school, providing students with a Catholic education rich in tradition enhanced by a 21st century classroom.
Our academic standards and Catholic virtues provide students with the tools essential to lead lives of service to God and our community.
Being an integral part of the parish community, St. Raphael School offers a warm and welcoming environment enriched by the time and talents offered through our partnership with parents.
Recognizing parents as the primary teachers in life, we welcome and value their ideas and interest.
Our goal is to prepare our students to lead lives of service while embracing the love of God and neighbor.
We work to develop a strong sense of self-worth in each of our students, enabling them to reach their full spiritual, intellectual and emotional potential.
