School Notes

  • Philosophy
  • The Donovan Community is a college-preparatory school dedicated to providing opportunities for the development of the spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual, social, and physical growth of each student.As we strive to nurture within each student the belief that we are all created by a loving God who cares for us and desires that we share with Him His life of happiness, our goal is to work in partnership with parents in developing in their sons and daughters a sense of responsibility to God, to themselves, and to their fellow human beings.We believe that learning requires a disciplined atmosphere that fosters both personal freedom and responsibility for one`s decisions.We strive to develop Christian values and to teach our Catholic heritage that all students might become examples of the ideal Christian person: A person who contributes energies and God-given talents for the well-being of self and others.We welcome students to our school who are from non-Catholic faith traditions unless attendance would cause conflict for them because of the unique Catholic dimension and philosophy of our school.We believe in One God, The Father, The Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and that every person is made in His image, deserving of respect and love. We foster these values so that our students may "Radiate the Lord" to the world.
