Donahue Academy has a thorough and carefully selective admissions process. We are best equipped to serve those who are at or above grade level and meet our standards of behavior. Each applicant is evaluated based on their academic records, recommendation forms, standardized testing results, grade level assessments and an interview process.
Donahue Academy admits qualified and mission-supporting students of any race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
Some grades may have a wait pool established. If there is a wait pool and a seat opens, qualified applicants in the wait pool will receive an offer following the acceptance priorities:
All admission decisions follow a formal process which includes written notification from the school. Parents should not make assumptions of admissions outside of this formal process. The admissions process and evaluation may determine there is not a good fit between the applicant and the school.
Applicants who are offered admission will have seven (7) calendar days to accept their offer and submit a non-refundable deposit fee of $300 per student with a per-family maximum fee of $1,000.
If an applicant accepts an offer of admission into Donahue Academy, the following forms must be submitted before enrollment closes on June 15th or admission and any non-refundable deposit fees are forfeited.
Upon acceptance, you may set up your FACTS Tuition financial account. You can also begin the process of requesting financial aid and applying for scholarships.
Students admitted into Donahue Academy’s Pre-Kindergarten program are not automatically accepted into our Kindergarten for the following academic year. A separate admissions process is implemented for all applicants to Kindergarten. For more details, please contact our Admissions Office or review our Pre-K Handbook and Kindergarten Expectations.
Before making your final decision to attend Donahue Academy, please read the Family Handbook to ensure you are aware of and agree to our policies.
