Principal's Letter

Welcome to St. Raphael Catholic School!

St. Raphael Catholic School is a faith-filled parish school that provides a Christ-centered learning environment dedicated to developing the unique qualities of each student. We provide an emotionally and physically safe environment where mutual respect and cooperation are a priority. The administration, faculty, and staff work in partnership with parents to build a solid foundation that helps each student develop to his or her fullest potential. In our school the unique qualities of each student are recognized. Children are encouraged to be life-long learners, and are taught to be active Christian leaders throughout their lives.

Catholic values and teachings are fully integrated throughout the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten through Grade Eight curriculum. Religion classes are taught daily and our classes attend weekly liturgy. Our fully accredited program includes a full range of traditional academic instruction complemented by art, music, technology, foreign language, physical education, and competitive athletic programs. Students who graduate from St. Raphael Catholic School excel at area high schools. We are proud of our many successes and warmly invite you to consider learning more about us.

Please call 727-821-9663 to schedule a school tour to discover if St. Raphael is the educational community for your child and you - we look forward to meeting your family!

Yours in Christ,
Lissette Drinkwater
