About Us

A Little Bit About Us

We have a mantra at Saint Katharine Drexel – What Would Jesus Do? He Would Love First. Everything we do stems from this mantra. We are continuously asking ourselves and our students how they can show His love first in every situation.

As a part of the Catholic Community School system, St. Katharine Drexel provides students of all religious and ethnical backgrounds with a strong education that will set the foundation of their lives. We believe that strong faith leads to strong families.

We provide an environment that fosters much more than a strong academic curriculum. We provide our students:

  • A foundation of faith.
  • A community that feels like family.
  • A focus on growing social and emotional skills.
  • A place to belong and grow.

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, crave, 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.

Our Patron Saint

St. Katharine Drexel

St. Katharine Drexel was raised by her wealthy father to believe that their wealth did not belong to them. Rather, it was loaned to them and needed to be shared with others.

Throughout her life, she served others as a missionary and gave her millions of dollars of inheritance to the poor.  In 1891, St. Katharine Drexel founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. These sisters were entirely devoted to the care of African Americans and Native Americans. They provided for the physical, spiritual and educational needs of the poorest of the poor.


Later in life, St. Katharine Drexel founded over 60 schools for the poor and indigenous.


We honor, admire, and aim to mirror St. Katharine Drexel’s leadership, commitment to service, and generosity.
