Saint Raymond School, as a parish elementary school, is an integral part of the Faith Community of Saint Raymond de Penafort.
We educate and form children in a solid core educational curriculum while instilling within them the values and teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a deep appreciation and understanding of our Catholic faith.
We teach and model respect for one's self, for others and for all creation.
We regard each child as a unique gift of God.
We are committed to being partners with parents/ guardians in helping to develop young people who will be well prepared academically and socially, spiritually and morally to become responsible and contributing members of God's people, in the larger world.
