Welcome from Principal and Pastor

Letter from our Principal: Catherine Deehan

Dear Friends and Families of St. Raymond School,

Welcome to the school website. I hope it will answer any questions you may have about the school.

St. Raymond School is a Catholic elementary school in the Diocese of Oakland and has served families for over 30 years. We have children enrolled in preschool through eighth grade from the parish of St. Raymond and the greater tri-valley area. Each year we welcome a new class of kindergarteners along with several new families across all grade levels. We are fortunate to have active and involved parents at St. Raymond School.

The school is accredited with the Western Catholic Educational Association and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges through 2021. We continue to make the School Mission the basis of our work. Students continue to work toward meeting the St. Raymond School Student Learning Expectations.

We welcome inquiries and visits. To tour the campus or request more information, call (925) 828-4064. 

Thank you for the many ways you assist us in making our school mission a reality.

Blessings to you and yours,


Letter from our Pastor: Father Lawrence D'Anjou

Dear Friends and Families of St. Raymond School,

As the Pastor of St. Raymond Parish, I welcome you to the St. Raymond School website.

Our Catholic faith tells us that life means more than achieving and succeeding. What really counts is using our God-given talents to bring about a better world for God’s glory. Jesus teaches us the essentials for what counts for success in God’s eyes. It is about faithfulness to His gospel, about loving in truth, about giving and forgiving, and about service to those in need. At St. Raymond School we seek to foster these values while providing students with an excellent education.

With our Principal Catherine Deehan, I wish you well in your exploration of this website, and I look forward to welcoming you personally to our parish and school community.

Sincerely in Christ,
