Reporting Home School Grades to Kolbe

  • A grade report is a sampling of the student’s work sent to the advisors by the parent, along with a report card of grades.  An advisor reviews the work, verifies the grades assigned, makes comments, and sends a report to the parents.  Grades are verified by sending work samples.  Please see “Reporting Grades to Kolbe Academy” in the Parent Handbook for more details.
  • Grade reporting is a service, not a requirement.  Parents are not required to file a year end grade report before enrolling for the next school year.  However, if no reports at all are filed, or if the required elements are not sent in, Kolbe Academy cannot validate the grades given by the parents on official transcripts.
  • Kolbe recommends filing reports quarterly for grades K-5 and at the end of each semester for junior high and high school.

Homeschooling Help

Home School Legal Defense Information

Kolbe Academy recommends joining the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA).  HSLDA’s primary goal is to bring together a large number of homeschooling families so that each can have a low-cost method of obtaining quality legal defense. 

Registering for the PSAT, SAT, & ACT

Students will need Kolbe’s CEEB code when registering for standardized tests.  Students may also choose to enroll using the standard homeschool code.  When registering for the PSAT, Kolbe suggests using the homeschool code so that student’s will be put in the running for the National Merit Scholarship program through their own state instead of through California where Kolbe is based.  

  • Kolbe Academy’s CEEB Code: 052084
