We are a proud and highly satisfied St. Raphael family. Our son is becoming the type of young man we pictured him becoming on the day of his birth. So much of that has to do with his entire school environment reinforcing what we teach him in our household. Our daughter will start in the kindergarten class next fall and we cannot wait. This school is a blessing and I would not trade it for anything. Thank you for featuring our school. – Amanda

Thank you for providing the opportunity to feature our school, St. Raphael. We hope this podcast encourages and inspires others to contact the school to learn more and take a tour to see if it is the right fit or better fit for their child(ren) and family. Many families in the Chicago Suburbs forget that we do have school choice. And while yes, many of the public schools are rated highly for academics, how do you rate cultural and moral values provided at a school. With all that is happening in our world today, we feel blessed to be sending our children to St. Raphael. What school will you choose? – Natalie
