A Doane Stuart education is rigorous and rooted in the fundamentals; our students consistently rank among the region’s best. But our emphasis on creative, critical thinking is equally essential. That, in combination with a strong foundation, gives our students an immeasurable advantage—in college and for life.
For more than 150 years, the Doane Stuart School has been inspiring and educating students from the ground up. From a very early age, our students are encouraged to develop learning skills, to master the facts and then to dig deeper.
The Doane Stuart School seeks students who are academically talented and motivated, and who will offer significant contributions to activities and programs.
The true measure of a Doane Stuart education is our great success in graduating hallmark individuals, people who really are capable of functioning in a global economy, in a world of difference and with a real understanding that the opinions of others are our most valuable way to learn about ourselves and our world.
Our Alumni/ae are the backbone of Doane Stuart. Each graduate has paved the way for our students today and for the generations of young people in our future. Doane Stuart carries on the great traditions of our past, embodying the full legacies of both St. Agnes and Kenwood and moving enthusiastically into the 21st century.
