What are non-Kolbe courses? 

Non-Kolbe courses are courses not provided by Kolbe Academy.  Most PE, Fine Arts and other non-academic courses are considered non-Kolbe courses.   

 

How do I add non-Kolbe courses to my student's course registration?

Adding non-Kolbe courses to your student's list of courses is a benefit of any full-time enrollment status. When submitting your student's course registration, please indicate what non-Kolbe courses you will be submitting for review and approval to your family advisor. Once the course registration form is submitted, you can add the complete non-Kolbe course information to the Course Change Request Form, which is located in your student's Kolbe Portal account under the "Registration" tab. If you do not originally indicate which non-Kolbe courses the student is taking on their course registration form, you can always add the non-Kolbe course information onto the Course Change Request Form.

 

Once the advisor reviews the non-Kolbe course information you provided in the Course Change Request Form, the course will either be approved and added to the student's course registration form, or the advisor will contact you regarding why the course cannot be approved and what additional information may be needed.

 

What types of non-Kolbe courses does Kolbe accept? 

Kolbe accepts courses from many other curriculum providers or courses created by parents for grade and credit (credit is awarded for high school courses only). Courses at or above your child's grade level from major publishers should not present a problem, however, all non-Kolbe courses need to be approved before they become a part of your student's official course registration. 

 

What information does Kolbe Academy need to approve a non-Kolbe course?  

Provide the following information when submitting the non-Kolbe course information in the Course Change Request Form: 

 

  • Course Title 

  • Course Text(s) 

  • Course Description 

  • If not using a grade-level textbook, please be sure to confirm the hours of coursework involved and the materials that will be used.  

  • Provide a link to the curriculum provider/material.

    • If the provider you’re using offers many different courses, please provide a link to the course your child will be taking to help your Family Advisor determine course length, subject area, and grade level. 

 

What are the requirements for high school credit?

Please see the Parent and Student Handbook for a detailed outline on the criteria for high school level courses we use to evaluate non-Kolbe high school courses.

 

What type of support does Kolbe offer with non-Kolbe courses?

Kolbe Advisors cannot offer the same level of support we do with Kolbe courses.  Advisors are able to review non-Kolbe courses to determine if they can be approved and added to the student's course registration form and can accept the grade submissions for those courses. 

 

Approved Non-Kolbe Providers 

Below is a list of some of the providers Kolbe has approved curriculum from in the past. The list is not exhaustive. If you have a question, please contact your Family Advisor for more information. Please be sure to include the exact textbooks/materials you plan to use, even when using the providers below, so your Family Advisor can confirm whether it will work as you plan.

Note: These providers are listed for your convenience. Inclusion on this list does not indicate endorsement by Kolbe Academy, nor is it intended to endorse views expressed, or products or services offered, by these other providers.
