Our goal is our students’ strength and freedom. We want them to fully actualize their powers and potentialities: both those powers and potentialities they share with all men and those that God has particularly gifted them with.
Donahue Academy’s Catholic identity is forged day by day in our classrooms and all school activities. Here is Mr. Mark Jahnke, one of our Rhetoric stage teachers, briefly explaining the five pillars of Catholic education at a Community & Culture Night. Please feel free to watch the entire evening’s presentation and all other Community & Culture Night recordings.
Donahue Academy is a leader in Catholic education. Our school’s leadership has been instrumental in articulating and promoting the principles of Catholic identity on a national level. These five principles are the elements the Church expects to find in all Catholic schools and which distinguish them from other schools. The principles are derived from Church documents related to education, including the documents of Vatican II, documents from the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education and the writings of various Popes.
