Saint Katharine Drexel (1858-1955) began the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament in the 1890s, an order committed to the education and welfare of Native and African Americans (and, today, to the people of Haiti). Mother Drexel devoted her life and immense fortune to this cause and, under her leadership, the sisters built, funded, supplied, and staffed over sixty schools and missions throughout America.

When our legacy schools merged in 2012, we became one family. Assumption BVM School and St. Bede the Venerable School joined as a new school community. Together, they celebrated a new name that honors one of St. Katharine Drexel's miracles that had its roots on our premises. Today, our school is a vibrant and healthy institution dedicated to forming Catholic Leaders through academic excellence, personal discipline, and Christian service. We honor our patron's dedication to education by striving to live Christian lives, like she did.

Please help to support our school by giving, like St. Katharine Drexel did, as we advance in our mission.
