Our National Blue Ribbon designation indicates that Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic School ranks high in academic achievement, and we are among the most successful schools in the nation. I can not begin to tell you how absolutely thrilled we are to not only be recognized as a National Blue Ribbon school, but to receive this award in our first year of eligibility. This reflects our school's commitment to high standards and the climate of high expectations.
Please know that the hard work of our students, the commitment to excellence of the wonderful faculty and staff, and the good fortune to have such amazing and positive parents like you- all contributed to our school receiving this distinction.
During this time of celebration, we thank our Lord for showering His abundant blessings on Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic School and our entire school community! Each day our students learn the importance of their faith, the endless love of our God, and the love we have for one another. With our Lord's unconditional love for each one of us, let us continue to be lifted up to be the best that we can be!

Healthy Hands, Healthy Heart
Fall is here, and with the cool breeze comes the unfortunate cold and flu! If your child is sick, please keep him or her home. Please remind your child to always remember to wash his or her hands. Studies have proven that hand washing (next to the flu shot) is the BEST way to avoid colds and flu. A healthy diet and sleep also keep your immune system going, so be sure that your child gets plenty of rest!
Student Safety First
Please enter the morning drop-off car line with caution. The morning drop off is an express line; parents may not stop and get out of their cars. Students must exit from the PASSENGER SIDE only. Students MUST be ready to exit the car once pulling into the car line drop-off in order to eliminate back-up traffic. DO NOT DRIVE OUT OF THE CAR LINE. PLEASE WAIT FOR THE LINE TO MOVE SLOWLY TO EXIT.
If you need to bring your child into the school building, you MUST park your car in the front of the school and enter through the main school entrance. You must report to the office. No cars are permitted to park or idle in front of the school in the fire lane.
