Classical Education:

Photo of Private School in Naples, FLThe Donahue Academy of Ave Maria offers 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. Dorothy Sayers in her important article on classical education, The Lost Tools of Learning, referred to this as "teaching with the grain." The subject matter is structured, sequenced, and repeated over a period of years, growing ever deeper into details and increased depths of synthesis.

History and literature, music and art are studied in a complementary context. Science instruction also follows a similar four-year pattern of biology, earth science, chemistry, and physics. Each iteration of the discipline and subject matter increases in depth and scope as the student advances through our school and is constantly challenged to connect existing information and ideas to new information, insights and challenges.

Dr. Dan Guernsey, Ed.D. - Headmaster:
Dr. Guernsey is a graduate of the Saint Ignatius Institute (a classical great books program) at the Jesuit University of San Francisco where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in English. He holds a Master’s degree in English from U. C. Berkeley, and a Master’s degree in school administration from CSU Fresno. He earned his Doctorate in Education at Eastern Michigan University, specializing in educational leadership.
