Duchesne Academy offers a college-preparatory curriculum, which draws on the natural curiosity and ability of students to help them experience a love of learning. We focus on the whole child - intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical. Our goals and curriculum are strongly rooted in the Catholic doctrine; however our student population includes girls from many nationalities and religious denominations. This diversity adds a rich dimension to our learning environment. Since its founding in 1960 Duchesne Academy has built a reputation as one of Houston's strongest independent Catholic school.
