An Independent Episcopal Day School for Ages 3 Through 12th Grade in Burlington, New Jersey

Community Service

Community Service initiatives were created as part of Doane Academy's commitment to its Episcopal tradition and the belief that one grows in service to others.

Service projects provide an arena for students to learn about themselves, while learning the importance of helping others. Both Upper School and Lower School students share and discover their interests and talents with others through numerous community service opportunities. They learn that an action, no matter how small, can be significant. All community service opportunities serve the same purpose in teaching our students lessons about humility, compassion, patience, understanding, and the joy of giving. Our hope is that through volunteering, students will gain a sense of maturity, responsibility, and acquire a life-long commitment to service to others.
