St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory School is an all-girls Catholic school offering a quality education to young students in grades 8th through 12th.

Founded in 2013 by a group of alumni dedicated to preserving the legacy of its founder to continue the "Drexel Dream" of educating minority students. Drexel Prep is located at 5116 Magazine Street, formerly the site of Xavier University Preparatory School. Drexel Prep provides an advantageous environment for both education and self-development by encouraging students to exercise analytic and creative thinking to develop students' leadership skills.

Katharine Drexel realized her dream of establishing a school in New Orleans, Louisiana to educate African and Native Americans. St. Katharine Drexel's legacy of love, courage, service and the belief of providing a quality education for all is the hallmark of St. Katharine Drexel Preparatory School.

More than anything else, students and graduates of the Prep say the school nurtured their individuality. "It's a place where you can find yourself," - Jaz Hall SKDP Graduate C/O 2016

I appreciate the fact that a high percentage of students go on to attend college/university and that there are apparently a good deal of scholarships awarded to the students.- SKDP Parent Review C/O 2015
