Welcome to Saint Raphael Academy! For many young people, high school represents four of the most formative years of their lives. At Saint Raphael Academy, we attend to the development of the “whole child.” Our students are welcomed and known as individuals, they are inspired every day to discover their God-given gifts and talents, and they are challenged to build the foundation that is needed for future success. Our dedicated faculty, staff, coaches, and administrators are committed to ensure that the Academy continues to respond to the needs of our students through advancements in teaching, technology and scholarship.
Through its commitment to our Lasallian tradition, Saint Raphael Academy guides the development of each student’s unique talents by attending to their religious, academic, social, artistic and athletic needs. We provide a safe learning environment that places a priority on mutual respect and self-discipline.
You might ask, “What makes Saint Raphael Academy so special?” For me, the most evident reason is the way the students bond together to support and nurture each other. It is on display every single day at the Academy. I see students daily reaching out to assist one another in the classroom with a difficult project or task. I watch the athletes working synergistically on all of our sports teams. At student retreats, I am always amazed how the students validate and confirm their peers when they share their personal stories. And in all of our SRA drama productions, you know that our thespians and crew members have each other’s back.
I am not certain that these are common practices at every high school in Rhode Island. All of these lessons learned are what makes us Saint Raphael Academy; they are great experiences to learn as students, and wonderful attributes to possess as an adult!
I invite you to talk to friends and family who are Saints, and then come visit us and see for yourself!
Live Jesus in our hearts forever!
