Why St. Raymond School?

Dear Prospective Parents,

One hundred years ago, Fr. Scanlon, with the help of the Sisters of St. Francis of Mary Immaculate had a vision to educate children in the faith.  Year after year, our faith community has helped to shape people who are changing the world for the better.  Throughout our years of existence our graduates have gone on to be teachers, tradesmen, executives, business owners, but most importantly hard working, respectful, God-centered people. 

Today, our mission remains the same—to provide an unparalleled educational experience rooted in the Gospel values.  Each day, I have the privilege of leading our school to a bold vision of being a model school of critical thinking, student engagement, and joyful, action-oriented learning.  I do this with families passionate about Catholic education, students who care deeply about sharing Christ’s love with the world, and teachers who are committed to their practice as caring professionals. 

Outside of the family, school is the most important influence on a child. Therefore your school choice is critical in shaping your child.  Partner with St. Raymond School and together we will guide your child to live a purposeful and honorable life.  We are confident in all that we offer!

Please take advantage of the opportunity to reach out to us for conversation and questions, both before and after applying.  We are always happy to help. 

Respectfully,

Ms. Marjorie Hill
Principal
