Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"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.
