Our Mission & HISTORY


The Donoho School empowers me to Live with honor, Engage my passion, Act with humility, and Delight in wisdom.



The Anniston Academy was founded in 1963 and later named The Donoho School in 1976 after Mrs. Harriet Donoho, founder and benefactor.  For over sixty years, the school has enjoyed a healthy expansion to meet the growing needs of the community and has grown into a premier PreK-12 college preparatory school in Northeast Alabama.  

The Donoho School is recognized for its excellence throughout the nation and is a National Blue Ribbon School, an AISA Blue Ribbon Award recipient, and is accredited by SAIS.
