Villa Duchesne offers a rigorous course of study for young women in grades 9-12 with classes in each subject building from one year to the next to ensure there are no “gaps” in a student’s education. Honors courses, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and specialized courses are available to challenge each student as she discovers and develops her talents. An independent study program is available for juniors and seniors who have mastered our curriculum in a specific discipline and want to pursue advanced topics.
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 world and our fellow humans so that we may make a meaningful impact through faith and love.
I love the idea of cor unum—one heart. That is how it feels here at Villa, like we are all part of one heart. We are there for each other, at sports games, show choir, dance performances, and plays, and during traditions like Congé and Field Day. Relationships are so important here.
