As our oldest students continue to advance in their studies at St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School, they are also preparing intellectually and spiritually for life in high school and beyond. Students in grades 3-8 change classes for select subject areas, allowing the students to interact with many different teachers and groups of learners. Students in the upper school participate in a one-to-one technology initiative with the students having personal Chromebooks that they bring to and from school each day. Through the use of the Google Education suite of products, technology is woven into each subject area. Students also choose from more than twenty electives that give the students an opportunity to study or participate in new activities throughout the year.
All grades are enriched with classes in Spanish, Science, Music, Art, Computer, Library and Physical Education. Technology is integrated in many areas and students learn to use approved, grade-appropriate search engines for research and learn
