MOST INNOVATIVE CATHOLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN SAN DIEGO
See what our parents, teachers, students and supporters have to say about SKDA!
In May of 2020, St. Katharine Drexel Academy received the Re-Imagine Catholic School Award by the Diocese of San Diego at the Annual Catholic Educators Banquet! This Award is a huge honor for our school and a tangible reminder of the good work we are doing to create an innovative, faith based school for our families. Our school was nominated for this award by members of our community. It acknowledges a school who recognizes the needs and interests of the 21st century student, and one that makes innovative decisions that are based on research to establish sound rationale and foundation for new and creative programming or strategies. Lastly, this award specifically focuses on the uniqueness of the school’s program which empowers learners, increases student interest and drives achievement. We are so excited and honored to have SKDA be chosen among all schools in the Diocese for this prestigious award!

WHY OUR STUDENTS LOVE SKDA
