Dr. Jennifer Groves

I am thrilled to be in my 8th year serving as the principal at the Cathedral of St. Raymond School.  I am a product of Catholic education from our diocese having graduated from St. John the Baptist in Winfield.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Bradley University, a Master's Degree in Special Education and a Doctorate in Administration from Loyola University.  

I absolutely love being a member of the Cathedral family.  I consider it a tremendous honor to work with teachers, students and parents who demonstrate and live our mission inside and outside of the classroom.  The Cathedral of St. Raymond School truly is a faith community that develops life-long learners by teaching and living Catholic values within a strong tradition of spirituality, academic excellence, service to others and social development.  

I have the privilege of being a member of this family not just as an administrator, but also as a parent.  Both my son and daughter attend the Cathedral of St. Raymond School.  Like all parents, my husband and I had a choice as to where we would send our children.  While we explored other schools, including my former school and schools closer to our home, we knew in our hearts that we wanted our children to have the educational experience that the Cathedral of St. Raymond School has to offer.  While it is not always easy having my children at my work place every day, I cannot convey the number of blessings our family has received by being a part of the Cathedral community.  I know that the education my children are receiving at the Cathedral is forming them not only intellectually, but spiritually and emotionally as well.  

I am happy to answer any questions that you may have about our school, our programs and what we have to offer.  Feel free to contact me at:
