- Kolbe Academy was founded in 1980 by three families who experienced first-hand the rapid decline of the public school system and the weakening of the parochial schools.
- The founders anticipated the need to form young Catholic citizens who could effectively defend their Faith through a thorough understanding of doctrine and regular reception of the Sacraments.
- They also foresaw the growing need for better, more individualized and intensive instruction in basic education.
- With a focus on providing an education that is Ignatian in Method, Classical in Content and Loyal to the Magisterium in a small-class size environment or at home, Kolbe Academy continues to thrive.
- At Kolbe Academy, our goal is to develop the whole person mind, body and soul to form effective agents for Christ in the world.
- To develop the mind to its fullest potential, we use the Ignatian Method, which focuses on training the memory, understanding and will with a goal of being able to speak, write and act well.
- Especially in high school, we utilize a classical, literature-based curriculum, which elevates the mind and soul by studying the great works of Western civilization.
- We stand by high educational standards by expecting the best and always encouraging excellence there is no grade inflation at Kolbe.
- Finally, we emphasize public speaking, as we must be able to communicate effectively to win souls for Christ.
