Classical and Contemporary

Kolbe Academy, like our namesake, is rooted in tradition and relevant to the world today. We use the power of technology to offer a truly Catholic, classical, and flexible education to families around the world.

Kolbe Academy was founded in 1980 by three families who were looking for a wholesome, academically challenging educational environment. Their ultimate goal was to raise generations of young Catholic citizens who could live and defend the Faith with pride and joy. They also wanted to move beyond the increasingly standardized approach to education offered by the public school system.

In 1987, several families wanted Kolbe Academy’s help homeschooling their own children, but they lived too far away to make the commute. That’s when Kolbe Academy’s “school at home” program was born. Offering education that is Ignatian in method, classical in content, and loyal to the Magisterium, Kolbe Academy continues to thrive.
