I am enjoying that [my son’s] mind and heart are actively and carefully engaged by his excellent teacher, and that the very brief writing assignments, which are a real challenge for him, give him the opportunity to practice difficult skills frequently, and in a format that nearly ensures success. —Regarding Level 4 Liberal ArtsSt. Raphael School Parent
This course is expertly taught and is a healthy challenge for my daughter. The teacher is incredibly responsive and helpful whenever we contact her. —Regarding Greek 2St. Raphael School Parent
I really like the flexibility of learning from home combined with the structure of a “real” classroom experience. Also [the instructor] is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and shares his passion well. —Regarding Byzantine Chant 2St. Raphael School Parent
Glory to Jesus Christ! St. Raphael School has been a blessing me to and my family for years for many reasons. The most important of which is the high caliber (both spiritually and academically) of students and families I’ve worked with. It’s nearly a miracle to see everything coming together through the dicey medium of the Internet: amazing texts, powerful discussions, excellent writing, life-changing service projects, deep friendships, and growing closer to God. May God grant our little school many more years of bridging the gap of eternity and now with the ancient faith! The support of Schole Academy (including better infrastructure, broader and deeper community, and the vast educational resources of ClassicalU) has been an extra blessing.Fr. Noah Bushelli
It is a blessing to teach at St. Raphael School! A community of lifelong learners rooted in the Orthodox Christian faith—it is here that we find family! Together we learn, laugh, love, and live in God’s presence, developing deep, meaningful relationships. Our liberal arts program introduces and shares classic literature with communal conversation, which allows each person to question, wonder, and connect with the significant aspects found there. For me, SRS is home.Presbytera Maria Koulianos
