Board of Trustees

Responsibility to the Donovan Community

The Board of Trustees plays a vital role in the oversight of Monsignor Donovan Catholic High School. Composed of devoted volunteers, the Board ensures that policy guides school operations and that they align with our by-laws and remain in compliance with relevant state and federal laws. The Board sets policies that pertain to critical areas such as the academic program, tuition assistance, admissions, athletics and student life as well as school finances. The Board works directly with the Head of School to ensure these policies support and further the overall mission of the Donovan community.


Vision Statement

Monsignor Donovan Catholic High School’s vision is to be the best school in northeast Georgia by providing life-changing experiences that promote academic, athletic, and spiritual development of students in the Catholic tradition.


Mission Statement

Monsignor Donovan Catholic High School, a Catholic college preparatory school, will develop leaders of competence, conscience, compassion, confidence and courage who will radiate Christ in their lives.
