Mission & Shared Values

St. Rafael the Archangel School is committed to prepare all scholars to be virtuous leaders in our community by providing high academic instruction, instilling Catholic values and developing the whole person: mind, body and spirit.

Centered in Christ

We recognize that each person is a unique creation of God, and are dedicated to the development of the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. St. Rafael encourages positive self-growth and respect for each person’s dignity. At St. Rafael, we embrace our diverse community and encourage all students to apply — no matter their race, color, religion, creed, and national or ethnic origin.

Teachers and staff actively work with our students to create a school community centered around Christ and His teachings. Together, we explore academic opportunities that develop our individual God-given talents and build skills that bring value to both our school and city.

Our approach to education is pure “St. Rafael” and based on a model to develop a student’s social and communication skills. Individualized teaching time is a huge component of the model.

Beacon of Light

This individualized, faith-driven, high-quality education supports our students through their studies at St. Rafael and prepares them for their future joys and challenges. We truly believe we are nurturing the next generation of civic leaders and thoughtful innovators.

Our commitment to students and their families extends to the neighborhood as well. St. Rafael commits itself as a “beacon of safety and light” in our neighborhood through a supportive community committed to Christian values rooted in the Catholic faith tradition.
