Upper School

In Duchesne’s Upper School, your daughter expands her worldview, leads teams and groups, and grows in sophistication. The girls discover and refine their own unique voices as key contributors, authors, inventors, international travelers, and tireless volunteers. Our Upper School prepares your daughter for her life journey.
