Mission

Kolbe Academy & Trinity Prep is a Catholic school in Napa, CA for families with children in Grades Pre-K – 12 providing a high-quality, classically-influenced Catholic education in an academically challenging, faith-filled environment. The school is dedicated to forming the whole person—mind, body, and soul—in order to renew the world through children and young adults who possess the highest educational, moral, civic, and spiritual values.

Kolbe-Trinity is a rare educational institution in that it combines an outstanding curriculum and educational approach with a thorough focus on the Catholic Faith, virtue, character development and leadership. The school is smaller than public schools and provides a stronger moral and character foundation than these schools are able to provide. It offers smaller class sizes and a distinctive curriculum and focus compared to other private schools. Kolbe-Trinity is a combined PreK-12 school, which offers the opportunity for younger students to learn from older students and for older students to learn how to be good role models and leaders.

Our objective is to form well-rounded individuals with high educational, moral, civic, and spiritual values who are capable of transforming our society and world through faith in action. We desire for all of our students to develop into life-long learners and critical thinkers who can grow to their fullest potential, both intellectually and spiritually. We accomplish this by a challenging academic environment combined with individualized and intensive instruction in basic education in the lower grades and a superior college-preparatory high school program utilizing the greatest works of Western Civilization.

Saint of the Month

May is the month of our Blessed Mother Mary

The Catholic Church firmly believes that Mary was immaculately conceived. Since God rejects all sin, and the purpose of Christ’s incarnation was to release man from the grasp of Satan, it was not suitable that our redeemer be personally associated with sin. This means that unlike the original sin that we as humans inherit at the moment of conception, Mary was exempt from this sin, and in like manner, was not subject to sin throughout her life. In Luke 1:28, The Angel Gabriel addresses Mary “Hail, full of grace!” The fullness of grace would not have been hers, had she any stain of sin. In the Apostolic Constitution by Pope Pius IX on the Immaculate Conception, he iterates this teaching:

“Above all creatures did God so loved her that truly in her was the Father well pleased with singular delight. Therefore, far above all the angels and all the saints so wondrously did God endow her with the abundance of all heavenly gifts poured from the treasury of his divinity that this mother, ever absolutely free of all stain of sin, all fair and perfect, would possess that fullness of holy innocence and sanctity than which, under God, one cannot even imagine anything greater, and which, outside of God, no mind can succeed in comprehending fully.”
