Donahue Academy Building Project

Preparing Students for Personal and Spiritual Success

The quality of Donahue Academy’s Catholic, classical education is renown. That’s why we welcomed 50 new students this year and have 110 more who have already inquired for next year.

Families are moving to Ave Maria so their children can attend Donahue Academy, but more than half of our classes are already waitlisted.

We’re at capacity with 340 students. Next year’s additional, new students have nowhere to go.

The Church and nation need more Donahue Academy graduates. It’s time to complete Phase 1 of our planned expansion to start the next school year with 400 students.

With your partnership, we can make it happen!

A Life-Changing Opportunity

We have unprecedented, nationwide demand from parents and students flocking to the rapidly-growing haven of Ave Maria.

Now is the time to complete Phase 1 of our building. There is enough unused space to add four new classrooms and enable Donahue Academy to serve 450 students.

Cost to Complete Current Building: $600K by January, 2022

Equipping Children for Life and Eternity

Donahue Academy challenges you to stand up in front of an entire community, make a claim and then boldly defend it … something I’ve relied on heavily in the face of all the new viewpoints I’ve encountered in college.
