St. Raphael School

Welcome!

St. Raphael Catholic School educates preK through eighth grade under the authority of the Diocese of Joliet, Illinois.  Established in 1961, St. Raphael School educates the whole child. In addition to providing academic excellence, our faculty fosters Catholic values, morals and principles to prepare each student for a life of faith, service and integrity. St. Raphael students learn and grow in a Christ-centered loving family environment in small classes where they and your family are known by name throughout the school. Our students and families are part of a community who have similar values that shape who they grow up to be. St. Raphael provides a place for education and Catholic values to co-exist. In today's world, a Catholic education teaches children to live like Jesus. Together, with parent involvement, we guide children to be the best they can be academically and spiritually. We Teach More.
