Why We Founded Donum Dei

Donum Dei Classical Academy, A Gift of God​

In the spring and summer of 2018, a group of faithful believers gathered and sought the Lord in prayer for months, asking "What if San Francisco housed a school that provided an education for our children that was academically rigorous, classically Christian, spiritually robust, and missionally driven?" Our Founding Partners and team have worked tirelessly over the past year to develop Donum Dei Classical Academy, a Gift of God.  

Together, the Founding Partners and team of Donum Dei staff and volunteers seek to provide the opportunity for your child to engage in an academy where she can develop deeply her thinking skills, grow her debate skills, nurture her oratory skills, and flourish in her heart, soul, mind, and body in the paideia, or education, of the Lord. We believe you will find that there is no other school–public or private–in San Francisco quite like Donum Dei Classical Academy.

Our Mission and Vision

Donum Dei Classical Academy’s mission is to impart a rich Classical Christian curriculum full of Scriptural truth and life-giving experiences. We exist to nourish students’ hearts, souls, minds, and bodies for the purpose of growing in them knowledge, wisdom, good character, and Christ-like virtue worthy of bringing glory to our great God.
