Certified Wildlife Habitat

Villa Duchesne sits on a lush, 60-acre wooded campus in Frontenac. With breathtaking views of nature, it inspires our students to discover and develop their talents in a tranquil setting. Our campus nature trail is designated a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.

Original Log Cabin serving as kindergarten classroom
The century-old log cabin on our campus originally housed the Religious of the Sacred Heart as well as our first kindergarten class. It stands today as a tribute to our humble beginnings even as our modern facilities expand to meet the needs of students in the 21st century.
