Mission/Catholic Identity



Saint Raphael School is a Catholic Community where we live our faith, strive for life-long academic excellence, and leave the world better than we found it. 




At Saint Raphael School We Believe...

  • in God and the integration of Catholic values into daily life.
  • each person is a unique and precious gift from God.
  • life-long success begins with parents as primary educators working in partnership with the St. Raphael community.
  • that we model our faith through our actions and through service to others.
  • that all students can learn and achieve in a safe and disciplined environment.
  • quality education actively engages students in meaningful and challenging work that develops confident and self-directed learners

Catholic Identity   


 As a worshipping community, we recognize our obligation to accept, assimilate and transfer the message of Jesus in the Catholic tradition in loving partnership with the parents of our students.




Since its inception in 1948, the philosophy of Saint Raphael School remains the same at its core, but always open to new insights, discoveries, and directions.  We approach our Catholic education over a nine year period. In that span of time, we foster a strong Catholic identity in all areas of studies. We are proud of our strong spiritual foundation, our positive moral development, and are blessed to see our students grow into fine young Catholics. 
Students have frequent and varied opportunites to experience and express their Catholic faith each and every day.
