Curriculum

Kolby’s curriculum is designed to prepare all of our students for college. Honors Programs are available in all major disciplines including the study of Religion.

Students follow a 4x4 block schedule consisting of four classes per day, each 80 minutes long. There are two semesters per year, which allows students to choose eight courses per year. We have found that this schedule provides a more efficient and effective learning environment, and gives our students time to gain a more in-depth focus and understanding of each academic area in our curriculum.
