Doane Academy (formerly St. Mary's Hall-Doane Academy) is a coeducational private day school located in Burlington, New Jersey. Founded in May 1837 by Bishop George Washington Doane. Doane Academy was originally an all-girls boarding school, predating Mount Holyoke College by several months. Several buildings on campus are of historical importance, including the Chapel of the Holy Innocents which some call the first Gothic cruciform church in America. The school has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Secondary Schools since 1989.[2]

As of the 2009-10 school year, the school had an enrollment of 182 students (plus 5 in Prek) and 30.5 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 6.0.[1]
