Welcome to Kolbe Academy! We are the nation’s first and only Catholic recovery high school, and we are honored by this distinction.

Part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Allentown, Kolbe is a unique environment where we work each day to serve our students’ needs – not only academically, but, spiritually, socially, psychologically, physically, and emotionally. We offer a rigorous academic program, as one would find in any high school, but complement our studies with group and individual counseling, healing through art, 12-Step meetings, alternative peer groups, and building the skills necessary for successful long-term recovery. We collaborate closely with many of the recovery organizations in the Lehigh Valley, and take full advantage of our community resources and partnerships. In addition to our dedicated faculty, we have a full time Certified Recovery Specialist on staff, as well as an in-house counselor from Mid-Atlantic Rehabilitation Services (MARS). Students are treated with respect and concern with a focus on developing a mature social conscience and the building blocks essential for being a life-long learner.
We encourage you to call, email, or visit our school in Bath, PA, to learn more about how we can work together to ensure your student is afforded every opportunity to maintain sobriety, and excel in life!
Saint Maximilian Kolbe, pray for us!
Wishing you peace and all good,
Mr. Andrew D’Angelo
