The Villa Experience
Since 1929, Villa Duchesne has provided an excellent Sacred Heart education centered on our students. Villa is a thriving, vibrant school, committed to excellence, relationships, spiritual development, growth, and opportunity.
Coming to a Sacred Heart school, you have entered into a family, and have come to a home."
– Life at the Sacred Heart, 1985
True to our mission, we cultivate in our students a personal and active faith in God that serves as the foundation for all that we do. We have a deep respect for intellectual values, foster a social awareness and a global view, meaningfully build community, and encourage personal growth at every level. Villa's school community is certainly special, encompassing boys and girls age 3 through grade six and young women in grades 7 through 12. We share a dedication to inspirational learning, centered on spreading the love of Christ in the world.
that a transformational education is made even stronger when a student truly knows and embraces their God given gifts.
Whether boys and girls in our Lower School or young women in our Upper School, Villa Duchesne students learn in a community where academics and spiritual development are inextricably linked. As a result, their minds are stretched and their hearts are inspired, deepening the relevance and resonance of every lesson.
Because when we educate the whole student in this way, they develop both the academic and self-knowledge to change the world.
We have a personal and active faith in God that serves as the foundation of all that we do. Strong and secure in our faith, we express gratitude, practice self-awareness, and seek to find our purpose.
Seek to Understand
At Villa Duchesne, we encourage personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom. We seek to not only attain knowledge but to deeply understand the worlds and our fellow humans so that we may make a meaningful impact through faith and love.
Community building is at the heart of Villa Duchesne. We forge meaningful friendships and seek to be positive forces in our local and global communities.
Ask Hard Questions
We have a deep respect for intellectual values. We seek to become confident learners and creative problem solvers who persevere through adversity. We ask hard questions, whether academic or philosophical, and actively pursue opportunities for growth.
We pursue a social awareness which impels us to action. We see the dignity in all and advocate passionately with open hearts to make the world a better place.
