St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory School is a Catholic, private college preparatory school that provides for the holistic development of Christian young ladies through the harmonious blending of spiritual, moral, intellectual, and physical strengths. Drexel Prep stresses academic excellence while cultivating students' self-esteem & leadership skills to improve local and global communities.
Prep bases its philosophy on the belief that the total educational program nurtures and challenges the students, each of whom has unique gifts & talents. Preparing students to live with compassion, dignity, and responsibility in a constantly evolving world is Drexel Prep's ultimate purpose. This includes preparation for a variety of post secondary options. A strong discipline program, a challenging curriculum, varied co-curricular activities, and a community service program provides an integrated means for fulfilling this mission.
Now, more than ever, your donation will maintain our mission and tradition. We are hosting our first fundraiser for the 2023 - 2024 school year. Fundraising is a critical part of supporting Prep's Mission. It allows us to designate funds to the areas of greatest need. Our mission and tradition of providing the best Prep education possible is challenged each year by rising costs to operate the school - books, supplies, salaries, electricity, gas, COVID protocols, and Hurricane Ida, etc. - just like the rising costs you face at home and in your business. Tuition doesn't cover the full cost to educate each student.
Fundraisers are at the core of covering the shortfall between the full cost to educate our students and the tuition that we charge. Every gift makes a difference, your gift, large or small, supports the day to day operations of Prep - from curriculum development to campus ministry, teacher's salaries, athletics, Christian service, fine arts, student activities, building maintenance and more. Your gift helps keep tuition costs down for all students.
Make a donation in lieu of purchasing popcorn and still supporting SKDP's mission.
