    VERY family oriented! The high school is on the same campus as parish church,nthe preschool, grade school and middle school so all school-age children have a chance to interact during holidays, concerts, and other occasions. The clubs, performing arts programs and athletics are dynamic. There is something for everyone!

    While the school works with students of various abilities, special emphasis is put toward the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs- the latter of which is only offered at 14 other school in the whole state of NJ!

    DON'T let the idea of tuition stop you from sending your child here! There are many options for payment plans, financial assistance, work-study, etc. DEFINITELY worth a look!

    Both of my children attended Donovan. One has made a seemless transfer to college and felt prepared and ready for because of the AP English, Advanced Calculus classes and the many honors classes offered. My current senior is loving the Economics Honors class offered. The teacher not only brings his personal knowledge of finance and the stock market but engages and encourages the students. Beside the challenging course schedules there are many extracurricular activities offered. As a Junior my daughter had an amazing opportunity to build houses in the Dominican and all students contribute to local families through community service. Donovan makes a difference!
    My daughter was attending Lacey High School and was not being taught anything. She decided to go to a better school. She visited 4 different schools and she chose Donovan Catholic High School and has been thriving there ever since. She loves all of the teachers and is learning with ease. She made principal honor roll with a 98.25 average and is now taking IB, Honors and AP classes. She is very glad that she made the switch from a school that has no accountability to a school that thrives. Thank you Donovan Catholic High School!
