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

My daughter came to Duchesne shy and unsure. In one year, all of that changed, and now she tells me she wants to be the president of the United States!
