St. Raphael Elementary School
Saint Raphael School was founded in 1948 as an extension of the worshiping community of St.
Raphael Parish. Today, it is one of the largest Catholic elementary schools in the Cleveland diocese.
Nearly 800 students in grades K through 8 from communities like Westlake, Bay Village, and Avon Lake are being educated and nurtured in a vision of life, which is truly Catholic.
At the school we are committed to teaching the whole child.
