Jim and Felicia Coffey have been involved with Regina Angelorum Academy (RAA) since the founding of the school in 2007. Jim and Felicia live in Havertown, PA, and are active members of St. Denis Parish. Four of their children attended RAA and their daughter Mary Coppa Coffey, who entered into eternal life July 15, 2009, has been a powerful intercessor for RAA. The Coffeys pour their hearts and souls into our school. Their countless hours of service have included Jim's service as a member of the Board of Directors, Felicia's service as a math and music teacher, and her incredible feats in all types of weather to bring her harp and provide music for school Mass. They have rolled up their sleeves to mop floors, move furniture, stay after school to help students with their studies, and continue to do countless other acts of kindness.
Felicia says, "RAA provides a place where our students are free to completely be themselves and grow into who God created them to be. This is achieved because they have the comfort of learning and knowing, through Catholic Classical Education, who created them, where they came from, where they are going, and that they are each loved uniquely by God the Father."
