St. Katharine Drexel Academy (Grades TK-8), is a diverse, Catholic school that individualizes instruction by blending mobile technology with student learning needs. We develop servant leaders who put others before themselves by empowering great hearts and minds to reach their full potential. Our small class sizes and caring, creative, qualified staff make learning mobile, fun, and personal.

All are welcome to our Next Generation Catholic School where we work with parents to make enrollment affordable. Located in the College Area of San Diego. Come learn and grow with us!
