Dear Saints Alumni,

During the past decade, the Academy has grown in so many wonderful ways. We built a beautiful new theater (Coutu Theater), remodeled both academic buildings, updated two wonderful cafeterias, built a new student center (The Mills Family Student Center), and purchased a new building (193 Walcott Street, the former Christian Brothers’ residence). Additionally, we just concluded the most successful capital campaign in the history of SRA. A large portion of the campaign will be used to start a multi-million-dollar endowment to insure the future economic viability of the school. The SRA alumni made these dreams into a reality. I have been overwhelmed with the support the Academy has received from the SRA alumni! It could not have happened without you. Today, there is a very special group of SRA alumni I would like to acknowledge and highlight.

The Academy is very excited to announce the formation of The Saint Raphael Society. This Society celebrates alumni, parents and friends who wish to support Saint Raphael Academy through an estate provision, beneficiary designation, or life income gift. There is no minimum requirement. Through your gift, you become part of a distinguished group of individuals dedicated to preserving and enhancing the quality of education at Saints. Today’s Saint Raphael Society members have a passion for the Academy and are willing to make commitments today that will benefit Saints for many generations to come and create their own Legacy at Saint Raphael Academy.  We are grateful for all our alumni and want to honor and recognize, the following individuals who have made us aware of their planned giving intentions and, as a result, are now members of The Saint Raphael Society.

“I can honestly say, without a doubt, Saints had the greatest impact on my life.  The school was not coed when we attended, and we came here as boys and left as men.”

Chuck Walker, Class of 1964

“I support St. Raphael Academy because it is as true to the mission today as when I attended.  Lessons that I learned from caring teachers, coaches, and classmates continue to serve me today.  I know that today’s students are proud to be a part of the Saints family and value the extraordinary spirit at Saints like I do.”

Peter Miniati III, Class of 1980
