A Message From the Principal

Thank you for exploring your interest in Catholic education at Saint Raphael Catholic School. I am grateful that you have decided to learn more about our community.

At Saint Raphael Catholic School, we pride ourselves on the Jesuit tradition, where all staff and faculty strive to provide holistic formation for our students in grades K-8. Not only do our students excel when they graduate from Saint Raphael, but they are able to comfortably and confidently rely on a strong spiritual and social foundation that has been developed during their time here as a student. Whether your student is entering kindergarten or later in the educational journey, the faculty and staff at Saint Raphael Catholic School are ready to welcome students and families who prioritize a rigorous academic setting with a strong foundation in Catholic values.

Please contact Mary Morgan, Director of Enrollment, at to schedule a tour of our school. We look forward to sharing our campus with you.

Mr. Joseph Whitmore


The Saint Raphael Catholic School Community provides a safe and nurturing environment that educates each unique child of God spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally.


Our Guardians attend weekly Mass as a whole student body and actively participate in the congregation, as grade-level hosts, singing from the choir loft, as readers, altar servers, and gift bearers. We integrate our faith throughout the day and through our religion curriculum. Reconciliation is scheduled for our school students during Advent and Lent. We go above and beyond the religious curriculum through service projects and faith clubs after school.


With 49 teachers and staff, our students are offered a full complement of academics including, but not limited to, specials, electives, two languages, leveled math in middle school equivalent to a high school sophomore level all with the rigor to prepare them beyond graduation from SRCS. We offer standardized testing once a year for grades 2-8.


Here at Saint Raphael Catholic School we offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities for all grade levels as part of a well-rounded education. Activities may change from year-to-year, and are offered to enrich our students’ interests, physical abilities, and God-given talents. Whether it be chess club, Battle of the Books, art club, elective courses, or any of our formal athletic teams, your student will find opportunities they’ll enjoy and grow as a Guardian.
