Catholic. Classical. Flexible.

At Kolbe Academy, we offer an authentically Catholic, classical education in the Ignatian method. We seek to form the whole person in Truth and Goodness so that every student may find salvation in Jesus Christ. 

Ignatian education is founded on the principle that man is "born to praise, reverence and serve God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.” Its goal is to form children into adults capable of being Christian leaders in the world. It achieves this goal by teaching children how to think clearly and communicate effectively and discern and act upon the will of God in their lives.

Our classical curriculum puts emphasis on reading original sources wherever possible. We teach and celebrate the greatest works of Western civilization so students can learn to make connections between the ancient and the modern—which is also the spirit of the Church!

Kolbe Academy Building

We are committed to total Magisterial fidelity! Our staff is made up of faithfully Catholic, experienced, and dedicated individuals. You’ll never have to worry about whether we are holding true to Church teaching: it’s the basis for every single thing that we do.

We know that no two students learn in exactly the same way. That’s why flexibility is a critical element to our educational philosophy, enabling each parent to adjust, modify, or substitute materials based on what is best for the student while still receiving credit for the course on the Kolbe transcript.

We embrace flexibility as part of the principle of subsidiarity and, therefore, respect and encourage parents’ decision to embrace their role as the primary educators of their children. We're there to offer whatever level of support parents choose for their families.
