Saint Katharine Drexel School, as an extension of St. Katharine Drexel Parish, is a child-centered, caring community. SKDS is dedicated to educating the whole child in the Catholic Christian tradition, offering a Christian message and a faith-filled environment to its school family through worship and service. The St. Katharine Drexel School Family, with parents as the primary teachers, shares the joint responsibility of serving our school and others as well as building faith, knowledge and a cooperative spirit. All students, teachers, staff, parents and administration are vital to the educational program. At the St. Katharine Drexel School we teach the whole child. We encourage him/her to develop a personal and communal relationship with God. We foster a loving and secure environment. We challenge him/her to work thoroughly in all the disciplines. Finally, we encourage a sense of pride in oneself, leading to pride in St. Katharine Drexel School which plays an integral part in the Beaver Dam Community.
