Kolbe Academy homeschool uses the Baltimore Catechism to teach the Catholic beliefs in its home school curriculum. Saint Maximilian Kolbe is its patron saint.
Kolbe Academy's Religion program recommends the Baltimore Catechism (a most concise source of the Roman Catholic beliefs).
Catholic homeschooling parents can have audio and print tutorial help with the memory work and drill.
"Kolbe was founded in 1980 by three families who experienced first-hand the rapid decline of the public school system and the weakening of the parochial schools. The founders anticipated the need to form young Catholic citizens who could effectively defend their Faith through a thorough understanding of doctrine and regular reception of the Sacraments....
This education is specifically ordered by the Jesuit precept of a 'ratio studiorum', or course of study. This course of study provides an early foundation in reading, writing, speaking, and arithmetic, while introducing the student to the studies of history and science.
As Kolbe’s curriculum progresses, students read as many original, unedited, and unabridged classics as possible.... Throughout the course of study, Kolbe provides a thorough catechesis and in-depth study of theology, so that all students will know and understand the Catholic faith."
