Donahue Academy of Ave Maria is 501(c)3 charitable organization licensed by the State of Florida and owned and operated by an independent Board of Directors.  We are a Catholic school operating in the Diocese of Venice, Florida. We are officially recognized as an independent Catholic school in the diocese. While sharing a common vision with Ave Maria University and benefiting from its support, the Rhodora J.
