Marissa Carletta, 16, records her findings while looking at bone marrow from a tibia under a microscope at Rhodora J. Donahue Academy Monday, Oct. 22, 2012, in Ave Maria, Fla. Recently it was named a 'Top 50 Catholic School' on this year's National Catholic School Honor Roll based on its academics, Catholic identity and civics education. Only five years since opening it's doors it has bucked the trend of declining private and catholic school growth. Also it has proven itself academically with an SAT average score of 1,865 outpacing both the Collier school district of 1,463 and the national average of 1,498.
