In 1980, the presence of the Holy Spirit was truly in evidence in the parish of St. Raphael. A small group of parents was inspired to demonstrate their faith not only through their words, but also through their actions. At that time, there was no Catholic School in East El Paso. Soon however, this condition was to be changed by some very determined people, who desired a Catholic education for their children. This official approval was granted in 1984.
Recognizing and valuing each student’s individuality, St. Raphael School assists parents in their role as their child’s primary educator. We enhance their teaching by providing religious instruction in Catholic Doctrine, faith and values along with academic education.
We create an atmosphere which nurtures the student’s academic growth, spiritual formation, emotional, social and physical development.
St. Raphael School strives to lead our students to faith and action in preparation for their lives as members of the global community, in accordance with the will of God, through the Holy Spirit.
