A minimum of 6 credits are required each year in grades 9–12, and a minimum of 24 credits are required for graduation. Although Doane Academy has minimum requirements, most students aim for the maximum coursework they can complete in a given year.

Doane Academy operates on a trimester system. Each course carries a credit-weight reflecting the class time commitment: 0.33 credit for a single trimester, 0.66 credit for two trimesters, and 1 credit for a full-year course.

The Doane curricular system also includes ‘cycles’ for each grade level of courses, rotating by trimester, which focus on college preparation, character and leadership.
