Wise hearts, sharp minds

elementary school student in library

Your daughter’s smile melts you.
Her keen questions surprise you.
Her kindness warms your heart.

And you’re looking for the school where she can hone the intelligence of her mind, trust the wisdom of her heart, deepen her faith and her social conscience, learn and play within a close-knit community, and practice making the most of her growing independence.

Could that school be Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart for your daughter?

Since 1960, we’ve led Houston-area girls through the process of life-changing education and future-shaping formation. Anchored in the five Goals and Criteria of the Sacred Heart, your daughter’s Duchesne education develops every aspect of her being and resides within her long after graduation, informing every era of her unfolding life.

We see the admissions process as a trusted and revelatory conversation between your family and ours. We stand ready to answer any questions you may have about a potential match between your daughter and Duchesne.

We look forward to hearing from you— and to meeting your daughter.

Duchesne is such a unique community. Every student you walk by in the hallways is your friend. Everyone smiles at you and holds the doors open for you. Being a student of the Sacred Heart is much bigger than we all think, and it's amazing that as a part of this community, I have 700+ sisters. 12th Grader
