Saint Katherine Day School opened in 1953. We were the first day school for special needs students in the United States and the first of its kind in Philadelphia. Saint Katherine Day School strives to meet the unique needs of a diverse student population. We are the only Archdiocesan school that provides a school program for students with multiple impairments. We choose to use our school resources to meet this need because of our deep belief and respect for the dignity of all God’s people.
