Lower School

Duchesne Academy is committed to providing a balanced curriculum guided by the school mission and the 5 Sacred Heart Goals. Our program provides academic challenges and encourages problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. Teachers meet students where they are academically and provide a personalized, differentiated approach to learning. Students learn through hands-on experiences and project-based learning and enjoy related field trips throughout the year. Duchesne’s dedication to a balanced educational setting is evidenced by providing special classes in an 8-day rotation including Religion, Physical Education, Music, Art, Library, Technology, French, and Social Skills.
