School Profile


Why Choose Saint Raphael School for your child's education?


We educate and care about the whole child; academically, spiritually, emotionally and socially.  Each child is viewed as a unique individual, but also as a contributing member of a group, which is an important part of the educational process. We offer parents the opportunity to educate their child in a school that serves as an extended family. The same values taught at home are taught at Saint Raphael School.  There is a common agreement on what is believed and what is vital to the moral decision-making process. Discipline is seen as a positive.  It develops self-control, harmony, and acceptance by others.
