For New Families
The first educational years are absolutely critical to your child's development. St. Katharine Drexel School serves your child with care for their whole being - mind, heart, soul, and body - reflecting the timeless tradition of values-based education.
St. Katharine Drexel is dedicated to passing on the beliefs and traditions of the Catholic Church. Religion class is part of the daily schedule. Prayer is said at the beginning of the day, before and after lunch, and at the day's end. Students often ask for prayers for personal intentions.
After Thanksgiving the religious focus is on Advent. Students are involved in daily scripture readings and weekly all-school prayer services around the Advent wreath. St. Katharine Drexel anticipates and celebrates the birth of Jesus. This focus is reflected in school decorations and community service projects.
In the spring, students observe Lent and then celebrate Christ's resurrection at Easter.
Why choose St. Katharine Drexel? Children need St. Katharine Drexel. Faith gives life meaning; it defines what is acceptable and what is not. The Catholic faith is a constant guide.
