Doane Academy, an independent Episcopal day school, age 3 through 12th grade, provides an exceptional college preparatory program while cultivating character development and nurturing the emotional maturity essential in preparing students for life. We develop intelligent, capable individuals within a community where all are known, loved, and strongly encouraged to discover their unique potential.
Our beautiful, historic campus rests on the banks of the Delaware River and offers students a unique environment for rigorous academics, extra-curricular opportunities, and student life enriched by traditions that have developed over more than 180 years. Our classrooms are exciting learning environments, where students from age 3 to Grade 12 are engaged, challenged, and encouraged.
Doane seeks to attract curious learners, who strive to impact the school and the world beyond. While we take pride in the rigor of our academic and extracurricular programs, we also value each students character development. Our goal is to inspire our students to discover their unique potential and to define their personality and character. We encourage students to be significant - to add value to the people and places in their lives. A Doane student is one who respects the relationships in his or her life; has a passion for an area of academics, the arts, leadership, athletics, or service; and shares his or her distinct perspective to enhance and strengthen the learning experience for all.
