About Doane Stuart School . . . Doane Stuart was established in 1975, as an Early Childhood – Grade 12, coeducational college preparatory school, with the merger of two Albany schools—Kenwood Academy, founded in 1852, and St. Agnes School, founded in 1870—that were rooted in the Roman Catholic and Episcopal traditions. The resulting organization is a place where students of all faiths grow and learn together. The school’s emphasis is interfaith; most faiths are celebrated, and students learn about all the world’s major religions. Students are asked to understand why so many people in the world choose a life of faith; they are urged to study many religions, but not required to choose one. The community is based on tolerance and respect. It is a place to grow your mind and build your heart. As a co-educational interfaith school, we welcome students of all backgrounds and traditions. We celebrate diversity, and we provide a nurturing yet challenging environment that prepares students for today’s global Community. The Doane Stuart School is accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools, and holds memberships in the National Association of Independent Schools, National Association of Episcopal Schools, National Association for College Admission Counseling, and the College Board.
