LEADERSHIP POSITION OPEN
St. Raphael the Archangel Parish is now taking applications for the role of School Principal of our parish school for the coming 2017-18 school year and beyond.
We are searching for an outstanding candidate who will be successful with the following primary responsibilities:
- Represent and promote the Catholic identity and values of our school

Our exciting parochial school includes grades K-8th, plus a pre-school for 3 and 4 year olds. We currently have 170 K-8 students and are expecting 175-180 next year. There are about 50 pre-school students. We also have an after-care program.
Our faculty is an excellent mixture of experience and youth, all of whom are totally dedicated to providing an excellent Catholic education to our students. The parents of our students are extremely supportive of our school and its many facets. The curriculum has been updated and improved in the last few years. We are currently planning to implement some STREAM aspects into the current curriculum. Our school facilities look very contemporary, with the latest addition coming about 12 years ago. Our religion program includes all the students coming to 8am Mass, Monday through Thursday, with the opportunity prayer services, stations, or adoration on Fridays. The pastor keeps contact with the students by teaching a religion class for two grades each week.
The parish and school are on a sound financial footing, due to the generosity of so many in our parish community.
