The Donahue Academy certainly “punches above its weight” when it comes to athletics. Even though we are a small school, we field a broad array of teams and have an astonishing success rate given our size. We even have a state championship in football! A critical implication of our small size means we encourage all of our students to consider playing a sport they might not otherwise have attempted or thought they could excel at. Students who might not make a team at a big school may find the opportunity to play and have fun with friends on interschool competitive sports team at our school.

Current 2018 League Champions in Middle School Boys Soccer, Middle School Boys Cross Country and Middle School Girls Cross County. High School Girls Volleyball District Finalists and 6 Man High School Football undefeated season.

“Sports are not merely the exercise of muscles, but it is the school of moral values and of training in courage, in perseverance, and in overcoming laziness and carelessness. There is no doubt that these values are of greatest interest for the formation of a personality, which considers sports not an end in itself but as a means to total physical, moral and social development.” – St. John Paul II
