Set the Foundation

The first education experiences for your child are so exciting! Watching them learn new skills and develop new interests is rewarding for both of you. These early education experiences are also critical to their physical, academic, and spiritual development. At St. Katharine Drexel, we help children develop their whole being - body, mind, and spirit. We hope you and your family join us on this important journey. Below, we have outlined our simple admissions process. If you have any questions along the way, we'd love to hear from you. Reach out to our Principal, Erin Hatlestad, at 320-251-2376 or See you soon!

Step 1 // Schedule a Tour

People always tell us that they can feel the difference when they walk through our doors. We’d love for you to come feel the difference for yourself! Once you’re here, the family feel and personalized education environment we talk about will come to life. Bring your questions, and we’ll be sure to answer them, so you can feel comfortable and confident that you’re making the best decision for your child.

Step 2 // Fill Out an Application

Let’s get started – this is so exciting! You can grab an application at your school tour, or you can apply online. The application helps us get a better feel for your child and your family. Within a couple days of receiving your application, we’ll be in touch with more information!


Step 3 // Learn about Faith Based Covenant

Is a Catholic education worth the investment? Absolutely yes. Our mission at St. Katharine Drexel is to make quality Catholic education available and accessible to all who value it. We will not turn away families due to financial need. Instead, we offer a Faith Based Covenant rather than charging Tuition. Faith-Based Covenant asks parents, in gratitude for blessings received, to make a prayerful financial investment in their child(ren)’s education. Learn more about Faith Based Covenant.

Step 5 // Celebrate!

We’ll be working with you and your child to help ensure you all feel comfortable and welcomed here at St. Katharine Drexel. We are SO happy you’re here. Want a sneak peek into being an SKD Crusader?
