Overview


On May 1, 1837, Episcopal bishop George Washington Doane welcomed

52 young women from eight states to his new school, St. Mary's Hall, in

Burlington, New Jersey. Bishop Doane's radical innovation of giving young

women the same mental training as young men motivated people from far

and wide to send their daughters to this new school. Doane's visionary

efforts soon turned many heads and changed many hearts, and the school

grew accordingly. Today, as a coeducational school known as Doane

Academy, the institution carries forward Bishop Doane's passion to push

the boundaries of education. Located along the banks of the Delaware

River, Doane Academy builds and instills character and a sense of duty into

its students and prepares and guides them as they move "Right Onward"

to change the world.
