Educating Your Child
St. Katharine Drexel School 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.
As a Catholic school, we celebrate the seasons of the liturgical year. 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. We anticipate and celebrate 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.
How is religion taught?
Religion is taught as a curriculum subject at every grade level. Additionally, as a Catholic school, traditional Catholic/Christian values are part of each aspect of our school curriculum and activities. Catholicism/religion is both a class and a way of life.
