Saint Raphael Academy is one of the finest and most challenging Catholic, diocesan, coeducational, college preparatory high schools in the area.
Here, every student feels welcomed.With a 15-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio, a student population of about 500 students, and a 7-building campus, we are a school that is just the right size.
We are large enough to offer our students a comprehensive and competitive college preparatory high school experience, but we`re small enough so that we know all of our students.
At Saint Raphael Academy, we are more than just a school community, we are family.

St Raphael Academy has been a wonderful high school for my daughter. She transferred as a sophomore and had enjoyed 3 wonderful years there. At the open house, we felt a warm and welcoming attitude of everyone we met. At her interview, I was quite impressed with the time taken by all involved to get to know her as well as answer any and all of our questions re: such an important move for her. She has had strong academics with honors and AP course offerings, as well as been involved in their exemplary drama program. The supportive environment at SRA is really amazing—the staff, faculty and administration know who these students all are---not just the top of the class students, or the top athletes, or the "trouble" students, but all of them! The campus style environment is unique and great for the kids too — I wasn't too sure of it at first, but it works well.

Saint Raphael Academy has given me wonderful opportunities throughout my high school career. I have been able to perform many times with the Dance Team and with the award-winning Drama Program. Coming in as a transfer student my sophomore year was smooth, and I was welcomed. I have not only grown academically, but spiritually as well. I have made many wonderful friends at the Academy, and I am so thankful to all the teachers, administrators, and staff who have given me a great high school experience. I feel better prepared for college, and wherever my future takes me!

Saint Raphael Academy is a welcoming community full of diverse students and amazing learning opportunities. The teaching at the school is exceptional, and every teacher cares about their students very much. We are pushed to reach our greatest academic potential, and the guidance department helps us to choose potential college choices. Saint Raphael Academy prepares us for our future colleges in every way they possibly can, and the school is filled with faculty that want to see every student succeed. Not only that, but Saints do whatever they can to help families financially so that they can afford the tuition.
