Education in Virtue

Donahue Academy is pleased to provide for the formation of its students through the incorporation of the Disciple of Christ – Education in Virtue curriculum.

“The Disciple of Christ – Education in Virtue is a Christian curriculum structured on the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas regarding the virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit. It aims to provide a consistent structure and systematic instruction for youth to learn about the virtues so that that they may form the habits and dispositions necessary to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. This curriculum emphasizes Christian discipleship as indispensable toward human flourishing and the quest for joy. It has been developed in response to the call for a New Evangelization, firmly conveying the reality that happiness is found in a life of holiness.” – p. 6, Educator’s Guide

The Eighth Grade students of Donahue Academy in Ave Maria, Florida wanted to make their classroom something memorable while having it reflect the life of virtue. Entitled Education in Virtue, this room is a visual representation of the Virtues, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the Works of Mercy.
