Saint Raymond Academy is a great school! My daughter graduated from there a few years ago and I can't say enough about this school. The teachers are very concerned and the atmosphere is family- like. All students are college ready by graduation and many go to top colleges.

St. Raymond Academy is an excellent all girls Catholic HS. It's one of the best in the Bronx. The students are friendly and nice with each other. The teachers are amazing and the leadership is excellent. You won't regret having your daughter attend this school!
