    An amazing school that will prepare you for whatever you want to achieve after. Small size makes it feel like a family and allows for each student to really personalize their experience at the school. Doane has incredible teachers who are intelligent, experienced in both teaching and the professional worlds, and have passion for their subjects. Many choices of clubs and sports. Lots of special traditions that go back generations. An overall amazing school that I would highly recommend to anyone!

    My daughter received an excellent education at Doane Academy. She was regularly challenged and actively encouraged to expand her horizons. She was accepted to a number of good universities, and she has been very successful in her first year in college at a major research university. Her mother and I are very happy with our choice to send our daughter to Doane!
    We have been thrilled with our experience. Our son is on his eighth year at Doane and is happy and at home there. The school works hard to create a true family atmosphere where your child is known, loved and encouraged to discover their unique potential as their mission states. The staff has taken their time and care to direct our son through the many challenges of academic life. We could not be any happier with our investment in a good education and the character development of our child!
