The Doane Stuart School is one of the regions oldest Early Childhood-12 Coed schools. At Doane Stuart, students of all ages learn by actively engaging with the curriculum, one that is traditional at its core and is also flexible enough to allow a student to follow his or her passion. The classroom environment exudes intellectual curiosity, inquiry and genuine scholarship. Students at Doane Stuart appreciate fine teaching and make life-long friends of their teachers and their peers. Doane Stuart teachers provide a great deal of differentiated learning and offer individual instruction during and after school hours. In addition, they coach athletic teams, oversee student-run clubs AND they even offer Saturday activities. We boast the finest teaching in the region.

Doane Stuart was established in 1975, with the merger of two Albany schools Kenwood Academy, founded in 1852, and St. Agnes School, founded in 1870 that were rooted in the Roman Catholic and Episcopal traditions. The resulting organization is a plave where students of all faiths grow and learn together. The school emphasis is interfaith; most faiths are celebrated, and students learn about all the worlds major religions but not required to choose one. The community is based on tolerance and respect. It is a place to grow your mind and build your heart.

As a co-educational interfaith school, we welcome students of all backgrounds and traditions. We celebrate diversity, and we provide a nurturing yet challenging enviornment that prepares students for todays global community.
