Physical Education Credit

As a result of keeping with Kolbe Academy’s philosophy that the ultimate goal of education is that of forming the whole person—mind, body and soul—there is an extensive amount of physical education credit required for all three diploma types. The purpose of the physical education requirement is most obviously to help form the body. Physical education credit can be achieved through a formal physical fitness program such as organized sports, weight training, or a rigorous exercise regime. However, physical education credit can also be achieved through less formal avenues such as daily walks, outside chores, or running. Kolbe Academy is not particular to the way in which PE credit is obtained, so long as something regular is done by the student each semester to help form and improve the body.

Non-academic courses earn 5 credits for a full year and 2.5 credits per semester. Students should spend approximately 4 hours a week total (or 60 hours per semester) on each required non-academic subject such Physical Education. Non-academic subjects are recorded on the report card with a Pass/Fail grade and are not calculated into the GPA.
