A cultural experience like no other
Welcome! We are pleased that you are considering applying to Saint Raphael Academy. The Academy is a college-preparatory, co-educational, Catholic high school with a university-style campus located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. This New England state is also known as “the Ocean State” due to its miles of coastline, and the city of Pawtucket is approximately one hour by train from Boston, Massachusetts, and three hours by train to New York City. Part of our mission is to provide a comprehensive secondary education to students from diverse backgrounds. We believe that international students are an integral part of our school community.
The international program is designed for students who seek to enroll for at least one semester. We welcome students to apply on their own or through an educational agency. (Housing is not guaranteed if applying without an agency.) We accept students in 9th through 11th grade and welcome them to graduate from the Academy in 12th grade. Our international program has attracted students from Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Germany, Guatemala, Italy, Laos, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, South Korea, Switzerland, Ukraine and Vietnam. International students live with host families, where students are immersed in American culture and increase their English language skills. You will be welcomed, challenged, and inspired at the Academy.
