Textbook List 2019-2020
Students are responsible for making sure they have all the required books for the courses they are scheduled to take prior to the start of the academic year.
Once a new student registers to attend Saint Raphael Academy, a listing of the courses that they are scheduled to take is provided to them. For most students, this course listing is given to them at the New Student Welcome Night held each May. For students who register after the New Student Welcome Night, their course list is mailed to them. If you are a new student, and do not have your course list, please contact the Admissions Office as soon as possible to obtain it.
Current students will be mailed a copy of their course listing over the summer.
Once a student has a copy of their course listing, then they simply have to refer to the textbook list to see which books they will be required to have for the start of the academic year.
If you are a resident of Rhode Island, your city or town will provide textbooks for the following subjects: Math, Science, Foreign Language, Social Studies, and English. (“State Books” are marked as such on the textbook list.) If you are a resident of East Providence, Pawtucket, or Providence, these “state books” will be given to you by Saint Raphael Academy at the August orientation. If you are a resident of any other Rhode Island city or town, you must pick up these “state books” yourself by contacting the appropriate city or town office. Links with information regarding where, when, and how you can pick up your “state books” will be added here as they are received from each district in the spring, so check back often:
If your city or town is not listed to the right, please contact them directly to determine where, when, and how you can order and pick up your “state books.” Most cities and towns require you to order “state books” by mid- to late-June.
Please note that Rhode Island cities and towns will not provide you with certain books (for instance, books for Theology classes, workbooks, and other reference books). These books can be purchased online from Follett Virtual Bookstores.
If you are a resident of Massachusetts, all books must be purchased and can be purchased from Follett Virtual Bookstores or any vendor you prefer. When purchasing books, please ensure the ISBN matches the one listed on the textbook list.
