We Are St. Raphael!
Welcome, prospective parents of St. Raphael School. We understand the importance of finding the right school for your child, and we are thrilled that you are here. At SRS, parents are an integral part of our community, and we consider a St. Raphael education to be an extension of home. We encourage you to peruse the information provided here as well as elsewhere throughout our website. Should you have questions about St. Raphael School or would like to request a tour, please contact Julie Cress by email or at 301-762-2143 ext. 158. We are proud of our 21st-century learners—thank you for visiting us online to learn about the St. Raphael difference.
