About Us
Wise hearts.  Sharp minds. Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart is Houston's Catholic, all-girls' Pre-K3 through grade 12 college-preparatory school founded on the Sacred Heart Goals and Criteria.  We offer Houston girls what the Sacred Heart foundress, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, offered to the girls of France more than 200 years ago -- a stimulating, enveloping, and elevating education from which girls emerge as uniquely formed and confident young women. At Duchesne, your daughter's formation means:
  • exploring her expansive relationship with God,
  • immersing herself in authentic and challenging intellectual work,
  • developing an informed social conscience,
  • contributing her gifts and perspective to our dynamic community,
  • exercising the privilege of wise freedom.

Duchesne extends a myriad of opportunities for personal realization and intellectual growth to each girl through a comprehensive writing and language arts curriculum, an immersive and advanced STEM program, and progressively in-depth discussions and college-level research preparation.  We have passion-building offerings across the arts and athletics and extensive, perspective-widening service learning engagements that move girls beyond the comfort of campus to understand and influence the realities of their greater Houston community and the world. Enveloped in Duchesne's joyful, stimulating, and compassionate community, each girl grows into a unique, complex, and conscientious young woman who uses her clear voice, affirming spirit, and discerning mind to fulfill her God-given purpose.
