In the center of a 35 square-mile-city amid a town of 33,600 families is the tight-knit community of St. Raphael Catholic School. Through the shared value of enriching their children's lives with a Catholic education, 185 school families partner with the school faculty to create a unique learning environment in which the otherwise large town of Naperville, Illinois seems a little bit smaller.
St. Raphael Catholic School educates Kindergarten through Eighth grade with an average enrollment of 310 students under the authority of the Diocese of Joliet, Illinois. The school was established in 1961 and consists of thirty-eight talented faculty and staff. St. Raphael believes in educating the whole child spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially. We believe in providing our students with opportunities which will develop a community of faith in service to our parish community as well as to others.
What makes St. Raphael one of the premier schools in the Joliet Diocese? Is it the faculty? The students? The parents? The answer, to all, is a resounding, "Yes!"
The belief in this educational philosophy is the reason for the continued success of the school. It is the reason the classrooms are full each fall. It is the reason for the active parental involvement in the Home & School Association. It is the reason that our teachers continue their vocation at St. Raphael, and it is the reason that parents are willing to make the financial commitment to Catholic education in a town so highly regarded for its own commitment to public education.
We invite you to see for yourself what makes St. Raphael Catholic School so special. We hope your family will soon be joining our school families in calling St. Raphael Catholic School your community.
