Steps to Enrollment

We offer a wide range of courses and programs to meet the individual needs of our community. Courses can be found through Scholé Academy, dual enrollment with the University of St. Katherine, the Scholé Academy Tutoring Center, and the St. Raphael School.

Our goal at Scholé Academy is to help match prepared students for new course challenges and provide them the best opportunity for success. To help families, instructors, and administrators in this endeavor, Scholé Academy administers placement assessments in order to get to know each student and find the best learning environment for him or her, as we seek to educate our students well and wisely.

Parent Testimonials

We like that the courses help the students strive for excellence while at the same time keeping them engaged and happy in their work. I truly don’t know how you do this! The balance of rigor and ease is amazing.

Scholé Academy Parent

We do not have any local Christian classical schools and I love that we have the opportunity to attend one of the best from our own home. Having a little less on my plate allows me to have some space to care for my own soul, which is necessary in the marathon of homeschooling.

Scholé Academy Parent

Scholé Academy has been life-changing for our homeschool. Thank you for introducing my family to the idea of scholé, or restful learning. It is wonderful to learn from a place of rest and peace and joy.
