    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!

    Doane Academy is a wonderfully unique school with exceptional faculty and staff, and an enchanting riverfront campus. Our family is eternally grateful to have found this nurturing home away from home for our daughters. Their character building experiences, personalized guidance and support, and college prep advice / counseling over these last few years of High School have been priceless! Although it will be a bittersweet goodbye when our youngest daughter, Audrey, graduates in June, we cannot wait to see what the future holds for our girls! Doane Academy has given them knowledge, confidence, and autonomy, as well as a special sense of community, and strong work ethics. Life long friends, skills, and memories have been made at the "best school ever !"
    Doane Academy is a tight-knit community that is diverse and a safe place for students to learn. Students are able to make friends quickly, and get to know their educators on a different level, as they get older. The education is a mixture of hands on learning, group work, individual work, projects, and fun activities. Where else can you find a school whose top students are athletes, artists, members of the mock trial team, member of our band, leaders of STEAM Fair projects, and more.
