Academy Culture

At Donum Dei, students grow intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. The culture of Donum Dei encompasses art, athletics, missions, service, and worship, all of which contribute to forming the whole person every day.

Liberal Arts

A Classical Christian academy recognizes the developmental stages of learning, tailoring content and methodology to student’s needs and abilities, while building on the fundamentals of the Christian faith to create a comprehensive biblical worldview.

Fine Arts

Donum Dei employs the art of music, fine arts, and theater to point students toward the beauty of God’s creation. Through these media, students learn to use their gifts to glorify God.


From martial arts, ballet, and tap, to more traditional physical education offerings, Donum Dei trains students to build up their physical strength and endurance for God’s kingdom.

Spiritual Life

Donum Dei seeks to grow every day as a community of followers of Jesus Christ. Christ is the center of all we do at the Academy — in and out of the classroom.


Donum Dei values all members of its community, including students, faculty, parents, and families. The Academy provides many opportunities for community-building among these groups and with our local community in San Francisco.
