Identifying a school in San Francisco that is the right fit for your child — one that will provide the best intellectual, creative, and spiritual growth — can be a daunting task. However, we look forward to helping you navigate this process.

Admissions Overview

As parents, we want an environment where our children are known by their teachers as individual learners and are supported by a community of like-minded families. Donum Dei seeks to train up tomorrow’s leaders, Christians marked both by their intellect and ability and by their wisdom, virtue, and good character.

We believe that when our families are on mission with us, Donum Dei's culture will develop and strengthen.  If you want to partner with an Academy in San Francisco that is Classically Christian, Academically Rigorous, Spiritually Robust, and Missionally Driven, then we want to hear from you!

Classical Education and Academics

A Classical Christian education recognizes the developmental stages of learning, tailoring content and methodology to students’ needs and abilities, while building on the fundamentals of the Christian faith to create a comprehensive biblical worldview.
Donum Dei’s Grammar School encourages young students to love learning through memorization, chants, and songs. Bridge at Donum Dei provides an opportunity for students in Grades 5-9 to learn together through Bridge tutors, mentors, and online courses
