Academic workshop classes will include mostly in-class work with some outside reading and/or homework. Academic workshop classes are Pass/Fail and are added to a student's transcript/report card only by request of the parent after the class is complete using this form.

Our Study Skills mini-workshops meet 6 times over the summer.  This class may require a little outside reading and work, but most of the material is practiced within the workshop.  Mini-workshop classes are Pass/Fail and are added to a student's transcript/report card only by request of the parent after the class is complete using this form. Mini-workshops will receive 1.25 credits and will receive the OS (Kolbe Summer Course) designation on the Kolbe transcript.

Academic Semester Classes

Academic Semester Credit classes are worth 5 credits of academic credit in the discipline indicated and are graded by the teacher on the A-F scale.  A Kolbe transcript will be generated automatically for any student who completes an Academic Semester Credit class.  Students should expect the typical amount of outside work in these classes, including papers, reading, exams and/or final projects, and other assignments.  All Academic Semester courses may be counted toward the subject requirements of the Standard or Magna Cum Laude Diplomas. Students pursuing the Summa Cum Laude diploma may count the Fine Arts courses toward their fine arts subject requirements, but the remainder do not fulfill any of the Summa diploma's subject requirements. All Academic Semester classes will receive the Kolbe Summer Course (OS) designation on the student transcript.

The following are Academic Semester courses being offered during the Summer 2016 term.
