Bishop Donahue has been celebrating its commitment to educating young men and women for 51 years.
In 1955, we opened our doors and quickly became the benchmark of a quality Catholic education.
We provide a rigorous academic program which challenges its students to use their intelligence creatively, constructively and orginally.
We strive to prepare our students not only for school but for life.
The Marist tradition exists primarily to foster our students' growth in the Catholic faith.
Committed to the education of the whole person, Bishop Donahue offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities which help to broaden and deepen the academic and spiritual development of our students.
Bishop Donahue is a Catholic high school that exists to create a safe student centered community that fosters academic achievement; help students grow intellectually, physically and socially; respond to our changing world by providing current technological and educational resources; instill the Gospel and Marist values of respect, love and compassion; serve the poor and unfortunate everywhere and teach all students to be adaptable, productive and responsible global citizens, so that all may enter to learn Christ and exit to serve Christ.
