St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School is a welcoming community that honors our Catholic identity and the heritage of our legacy schools – St. Bede the Venerable and Assumption BVM Schools. We believe in developing the potential of each human being through education, and working in partnership with God in this creative act.
We express our intellectual tradition through a fundamental openness in the search for truth that sees no ultimate conflict between religious faith and human knowing, and is receptive to other expressions of religious faith.
Who we are and what we believe permeates St. Katharine Drexel School in both visible and subtle ways.
Ways in which we integrate Catholic Identity:
- Emphasis on developing the whole person in mind, body and spirit, while encouraging kids to become positive contributors to the world.
- Classroom instruction, participation in liturgical activities, and interaction with the parish communities, develops a strong foundation in the Catholic Faith.
- Annual service projects for every class: Each grade is dedicated to helping a specific charity, teaching students how to live their faith and lead by example.
- Students receive sacramental preparation along with attending mass as a group on the first Friday of every month.
- Passion Play
- May Procession
- Religious Retreats
- & more!
SKD School offers a complete religious educational experience.
Religion is taught daily at St. Katharine Drexel School. Textbooks are approved by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and are age appropriate. All concepts are based on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
Our Students Live Their Faith with Catholic Educators
Our students live their faith with Catholic teachers who care about their entire being: spiritual, physical and intellectual. Faith-filled educators with caring, loving attitudes toward their students extend beyond their daily mission of “teaching in a classroom.” They hand their love of faith to your child to prepare him or her for the challenges of life.
Our Catholic Identity
During the school year there are many efforts to share our Catholic identity. By the time our students graduate from 8th grade they are well aware of this identity. They do understand their parent’s gift of a Catholic education to them by the time they move on to high school.
