A Little About Us

YOU Matter at St Katharine Drexel.

At St. Katharine Drexel, the foundation of our educational journey is built upon strong pillars that guide our every endeavor. We pride ourselves on being a united team, working collaboratively to ensure that each student thrives and flourishes. With a dedicated staff that is both movemindfully and Barton trained, we prioritize the holistic development of every student – addressing their physical, mental, and emotional needs.

Our unwavering commitment lies in nurturing the whole child, fostering an environment where feelings are understood, emotions are regulated, and stress is managed. We instill in our students the values of compassion and support, encouraging them to extend a helping hand to others.

Safety and encouragement form the cornerstones of our learning environment, where high rigor academics challenge young minds while maintaining a nurturing atmosphere.

As a close-knit community, we prioritize the strength of family bonds, recognizing that they play a vital role in a child’s growth.

Join us on this enriching journey of creating well-rounded individuals who not only excel academically but also thrive emotionally and socially. We look forward to showing you and your family our school!

What is different at St. Katharine Drexel?

With our small class sizes and family-type learning environment, your child will receive the personal attention they need and deserve.

We specialize in the Barton learning method for Dyslexic students, and meet each child where they are in their own learning process.

Your child will be seen, known, and loved at St. Katharine Drexel. Their SKD class will soon feel like family, giving your child the comfort they need to succeed in learning.

Meet our Principal, Sheri Rutar

Hi friends and families! I’m Sheri, the Principal here at St. Katharine Drexel. When you come to visit, I’m confident you’ll experience an environment where friends feel like family and the school feels like a welcoming home.

We have strong academic standards at SKD, and we really focus on developing the whole child, including emotional and social skills. We specialize in the Barton Dyslexia system, a great tutoring system for children who struggle with spelling, reading, and writing due to dyslexia or a learning disability. Our exceptional team leads by example and instills strong values in our students.

We love what we do and who we serve. We hope to see you and your students in our hallways soon!
