Doane Academy

350 Riverbank, Burlington, NJ 08016

Founded as a girls' boarding school by Rt. Rev. George Washington Doane, second Episcopal bishop of New Jersey, St. Mary's Hall became a day school in 1953, accepting boys in the elementary grades. Classes became coed in 1974, when the school merged with Doane Academy, founded in 1965 as a coordinate boys' school for students in grades 6-12. Long known as St. Mary's Hall/Doane Academy, the school assumed its current name in 2008. It is now fully coeducational. The academy's college preparatory curriculum prepares graduates for many leading colleges. Reading instruction, which takes a phonics- and literature-based approach, enables children to read age-appropriate novels beginning in grade 2; writing skills are also a focus of the early grades. Math and science instruction is tailored to the student's ability level throughout the school.
