School History:

In september 1960, Duchese Academy of the Sacred Heart opened our doors to the first 52 girls on what had been a 15-acre Bering family estate. The next 50 years brought many adaptations and evolutions, always to provide our students with a singular institution that both retains its character and sets the standard in academics and facilities. Today, the original number of 52 students has grown to more than 700, and the initial three grades of seven, eight and nine have expanded to encompass our pre-kindergarten through grade 12 continuum. While Duchesne still boasts of a tranquil campus and a sense of seclusionin the Memorial area, it is now a dynamic presence of the 21st century learning firmly rooted in our 200-year-old Sacred Heart values.
