Saint Raphael School Registration

Today we will begin our Early Childhood and Kindergarten registration for the 2022-2023 school year.  It is for these grades only at this time. We will do the rest of the school re-registration in January after the Christmas Break. If you have a child that will be starting Preschool (3 by Sept. 1, 2022), PreK( 4 by Sept. 1, 2022), or Kindergarten (5 by Sep 1, 2022), current families the forms are on SchoolSpeak.  Please return the correct application for either Early Childhood or Kindergarten.  If it will be the first-time attending St. Raphael for that child, please include a copy of the birth certificate & copy of the baptismal certificate if applicable.  If the child was baptized at St. Raphael, then we will just need the month and year at the bottom of the form. At this time, you will not pay any fees.  All registration fees will be billed through FACTS when we do the re-registration for the remaining grades.  If you have any questions and want a copy of the packet if you are a new family, please contact the school office at 630-355-1880.
