Kolbe Academy, like our namesake, is rooted in tradition yet relevant to the world today. We seek to harness the power of technology to offer a truly Catholic, classical, and flexible education. With salvation as the ultimate goal, Kolbe’s educational programs allow parents to tailor the formation of their children in the Catholic tradition, with a classical approach. In particular, Kolbe is the leader in online Catholic, classical education.
Kolbe offers three ways to educate: Traditional School at-Home, Live Online Courses, and Self-Paced Courses. Our goal is achieved only through the partnering of parents and a faculty and staff that is dedicated to teaching and modeling for students the good, the true, and the beautiful.
Kolbe’s Self-Paced Plus Program offers students the benefit of one-on-one interaction with an experienced Kolbe teacher, coupled with the flexibility of asynchronous lessons and assignments that can be utilized at the convenience of the student. With no live class time, and no set due dates, the student and parent are free to implement their own plan for the completion of any given course. The student has access to pre-recorded lessons, and a mixture of auto-graded and instructor-graded assignments that help the parent to assign a grade for the student, which is then reported to a Kolbe Advisor. The Asynchronous Instructor is expected to not only evaluate students’ work, but to interact with students and facilitate successful completion of the course. Self-Paced Students are enrolled on a rolling basis and have one year to complete courses. As a result, the following duties are year-round.
The positions are paid hourly and are competitive based on local market rates of the candidate.
