Integrating Gospel values with academic excellence in a multicultural environment

Drexel Neumann Academy is a Catholic school located in Chester, Pennsylvania. The Drexel Neumann Academy is co-sponsored by Neumann College, Saint Katharine Drexel Parish, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and the Sisters of Saint Francis of Philadelphia.

Drexel Neumann Academy is an independent school with a Franciscan charism. In the spirit of Saint Francis of Assisi, we see Christ in each other and seek to be witnesses of the Gospel message.

The uniqueness of the school lies in the small class size, a multiple intelligences approach to instruction which recognizes the giftedness of each child, and a curriculum which will prepare the students for future academic endeavors. We will provide our students with an extended school day and extended school year.

We will welcome approximately 225 students in grades pre-kindergarten through eighth on September 5, 2007.

The opening liturgy will be celebrated at Saint Katharine Drexel Church on September 9, 2007. The day will begin with a concert by the Saint James Alumni Choir at 10:00 a.m. followed by a Mass of Thanksgiving celebrated by Bishop Joseph McFadden beginning at 10:30 a.m. There will be an open house of the school following Mass.
