Uptown Catholic School Is Reborn

No longer closing, an Uptown school will stay open with a new name and renewed spirit.

In honor of its founder, Xavier prep is changing its name to St. Katharine Drexel preparatory high school.

When the all-girls catholic school announced they will close due to financial issues, six attorneys hammered out a plan to buy the catholic school and keep it open.

St. Katharine Drexel will remain an all-girls catholic school and operate under its own governing body.

The archdiocese has supported this effort to save the school since the beginning.

The yellow jacket mascot and school colors will remain the same.

The school currently enrolls 245 students with a capacity of nearly 400.

Xavier Prep was founded in 1915.
