“If you want your child to be an outstanding citizen of the world and to be prepared for the kingdom of God and if you want your child to be able to discover the talents hidden within them and to be able to find a place that will bring them out -whether it’s academics, music, or athletics – St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School is where that is going to happen.”

Monsignor John Marine, Pastor of St. Bede the Venerable Parish

Our Story

The 2012-2013 school year marked a new beginning for our school.  We celebrated a new name that honors a miracle that had its roots on the premises, and we welcomed the arrival of new students from Assumption BVM Parish, who joined with students from St. Bede the Venerable Parish in Holland, St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Richboro, and surrounding parishes to create an exceptional Catholic elementary school built for the future.

St. Katharine Drexel Regional Catholic School, located on the grounds of St. Bede Parish in Holland, Pennsylvania, includes full-day pre-kindergarten programs for ages 3-4, classrooms for grades K through 8, a state-of-the-art digital media center, an Arts & Sciences Center, a cafeteria, and a gymnasium with a stage for the performing arts. Classrooms are equipped with SMART Boards, projectors and high-speed Internet access.  Through our 1 to 1 technology initiative, chromebooks, laptops and iPads are a part of daily instruction for every student in grades K-8.

Saint Katharine Drexel Regional Catholic School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission of Elementary Schools. Though not mandatory, we believe that accreditation demonstrates our commitment to excellence and provides a strong endorsement for the value of an SKD education.
