To educate all children in preschool through eighth grade in mind, body and spirit by imparting the values of Jesus through a rigorous curriculum, devoted faculty, and an actively involved parent community.
Our preschool program follows the same hours and school year calendar as the St. Raphael Elementary School. Parents will be given a list of holidays and vacations at the beginning of each school year. A child may attend regardless of race, color, or religion, providing he/she will benefit from a preschool experience. Children may be enrolled 2, 3, 4, or all 5 days of the week. Our weekly schedule is Monday from 7:50-2:00 and Tuesday through Friday 7:50-2:50.
Parent Volunteer Program: Each St. Raphael Preschool Family is required either to devote a minimum number of hours of approved service to the school or pay a non-participation fee. Other extended family members are welcome to participate in the volunteer program.
Staff: All staff members are certified and experienced in the field of Early Childhood Education. All are members of the National Association for the Education of Young Children. We believe that the most important qualification of the staff member is a genuine and visible love for children.
