St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory School Reviews

I am currently entering my senior year at St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory High School, and we are a school whose very roots and founding are about coming over adversity. In my seventh grade year, the school started as St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory after having to leave it's name of Xavier Prep, which existed since 1915. We are not fortunate to have the updated resources of many schools, but we do not let our circumstances hold us back from achieving the goals we wish. In the past 2017-2018 school year, we received two State Championship titles, one in basketball and the other in track. I am blessed to be a fourth generation Prepper and proud that I attend a school that teaches you to use what you have to get the results you desire.

I graduated from St Katharine Drexel Preparatory High School in 2017 and I am so glad that I did. Prep is a school built on tradition and high Christian morals. Even though we may not have the best resources, we make up for it in academics and pride!
My experience at St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory School was fun, but I did come across some difficult tasks. I am a upcoming senior and I believe St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory School has me for prepared college. I like St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory is that they challenge us. They are preparing each of their students for success in the real world. If I can change or fix anything about St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory it would be to have activities outside of school that involves helping others.
