Holy Family Cathedral School was established in 1899, just one year after Tulsa became a city, by St. Katherine Drexel, with a mission to provide a quality, Catholic education to traditionally underserved populations, such as girls, children of color, non-traditional learners, and those without adequate financial resources.

Continued Dedication to St. Katherine Drexel’s Mission

We have continued to remain dedicated to this mission of inclusion and diversity, a mere 119 years later. Most recently, we have focused our efforts on further expanding the diversity of our community by welcoming a large number of immigrant families from Myanmar and by creating the Petra Program that serves students with academic or intellectual challenges in fully inclusive classrooms. In addition, we added diversity to our curriculum by our efforts to create an excellent, hands-on science curriculum and technology curriculum and through our addition of fine arts programming as an Oklahoma A+ School.

Focusing on The Future of Tulsa

As we enter into our 119th school year, we are continuing our mission by turning our focus to create stronger connections with our community, especially our immediate Downtown Tulsa neighbors.

We recognize that our students are the future, and we are providing for the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of each student, preparing them to be lifelong learners and achievers. This has been evidenced in our legacy of students that have become lawyers, healthcare professionals, engineers, entrepreneurs, professional athletes, civic leaders, and humanitarians.

We desire for our students to be the future of Tulsa.

In partnering with our Tulsa community, we hope to inspire our students and families to engage with and support our neighbors, to establish deep roots and connections in Tulsa, and to be contributing members of the vibrant, diverse, and growing Tulsa community.

Sponsor A Student

Due to our mission to provide a quality, Catholic education to all who desire it, we rely on generous donors to subsidize tuition so that we can continue to offer affordable tuition rates, scholarships, and reduced tuition to our families. Your donation will close the gap between what we charge our families and our operating costs, allowing us to continue to serve Tulsa and provide a quality education to traditionally underserved students.

Provide an event space

This year, we are met with a unique need of an event space for our many community events as our regular event space at the Holy Family Cathedral is undergoing repairs and renovations. These events include a monthly family dinner and student performance (estimated 150 attendees); our Christmas Program, Christmas Around the World, where our students present visual and performance pieces about how Christmas is celebrated in other countries (estimated 200+ attendees); and other student performances or community gatherings.

Provide an Educational Experience

We believe that there is an opportunity to learn everywhere we go. That’s why we love to partner with businesses and individuals of all types! In the past, we have partnered with the Garden Deva, Beck Design, Master Gardeners, Tulsa Glassblowing Studio, City Hall, and many others. We do not want to limit the opportunities for an educational experience and would love to start a conversation about how you can help connect our students to their math, science, cultural, art, history, business, and civic education in a tangible, real way.

Portion of Proceeds

Host an event for a limited amount of time where a portion of your proceeds will be donated to Holy Family Cathedral School! This type of cause marketing can be adapted for retail, service, or food service businesses. We will promote your business and the event both before and after the event to encourage our families and friends to support you. This is a valuable option for businesses that would like to expand their customer base.

Support the Fine Arts

As an Oklahoma A+ school, we are constantly looking to expand and grow our fine arts programming.

Monetary donations will provide art supplies; instruments; trips to museums, galleries, and studios; artist visits through ahha’s Artist in Schools program; and professional development for our educators. In-kind donations may consist of art supplies, instruments, and/or famous or local pieces of art to add to our Art Gallery. Due to the age of our students, we ask that any planned art donations be approved by the principal to ensure that all art is appropriate for our students.

Support our Urban Garden

A few years ago, Holy Family planted its first Urban Garden using a variety of alternative planting configurations, including raised beds and wooly pockets. This project enhances our science curriculum, and provides the opportunity for hands-on-learning for students of all ages. Additionally, this project results in the beautification of our campus and playground. Soil, plants, and other gardening materials are an ongoing cost of this project. Contributions to this project can be made via monetary or in-kind donations.

Contribute to the Mike Petzet Scholarship Fund

This fund is in honor of our beloved 1st Grade teacher Mike Petzet who passed away over ten years ago. Scholarships are awarded to children who demonstrate the attributes that Mr. Petzet worked to instill in his students. This year four students will be recognized for receiving the Mike Petzet Scholarship at our Annual Spaghetti dinner. Through the first two years of the event the Mike Petzet Scholarship Fund has raised over $13,000 towards providing scholarships for students.
