St. Katharine Drexel School | History

To serve the growing need for Catholic education in the west area of Sioux Falls and its surrounding areas, St. Katharine Drexel School opened its doors to students in preschool and first grade in the fall of 2008. Since then, the school has added one grade every year, and now offers classes from preschool up to the 6th grade.


St. Katharine Drexel School | School Program


The school offers flexible preschool programs for children aged 3 to 5. Its preschool curriculum address faith development, fine and gross motor skills, pre-reading readiness skills, language development, and technology, music and art exploration. The students are fostered in a faith-filled, creative and nurturing learning environment under the hands of highly qualified teachers.


Full day, every day Kindergarten is offered at St. Katharine Drexel School, with students attending class Monday through Friday. The program considers student maturation in their curriculum, and the need for enrichment and play through family, daycare or other extended opportunities. Success in grades are made to come hand in hand with faith development.


The school offers education for children up to 6th grade, with one section for every grade. The average class size of 12-28 allows the community to easily gather for prayer and worship, as well as for fun activities. The students are taught to earn high scores and show excellent growth in academic areas on informal, formal and standardized tests.
