Rhodora J. Donahue Academy of Ave Maria:
The Donahue Academy of Ave Maria in Naples on the west coast of Florida, is a classical day and boarding school in the Catholic tradition. We offer a freshman through Senior high school (9th-12th grade) boarding option, in addition to our K-12 day program. Freshman and sophomore boarding students are considered for placement with a Host Family in the Town of Ave Maria. Juniors and seniors live in the Ave Maria University dormitories. Our housing program is for college prep students with strong academic credentials and who will be completely "on Mission" with us academically and spiritually.
The Classical education imparted in Rhodora J. Donahue Academy of Ave Maria will be structured and integrated so as to effect not only the mastery of facts and ideas but also to provide the students with the tools of learning and a general disposition toward intellectual virtue.
Classical education is not just about subject matter but also about the integration of various disciplines and the development of intellectual faculties necessary to fruitfully and fully pursue truth and to appreciate the unity of all truth.
The means toward this end include a carefully structured curriculum, focusing on the great books, emphasizing reading and language (including Latin) and delivered with a pedagogical emphasis appropriate to the students' developmental abilities.
The boarding program will serve students from Florida who may want to stay just 5 nights a week as well as students from Florida and beyond who may need a full seven day boarding program.
Students will benefit from a full cafeteria available for meals, as well as walking distance to restaurants, a grocery store and medical facilities. Many of the non-boarding high school students live in the small town, so boarders will have a chance to engage with many of their classmates, not just those living in the residence hall.
Where will Freshman and Sophomores be housed?
The Academy will assist you in finding housing with a family in the town of Ave Maria. You will be living with a host family as one of their household members. Depending on the family, you may share a room. You will pariticipate in household chores and activities as the others in the household.
