The mission of Duchesne High School is to educate the
individual student as a whole person: mind, body and spirit.
to provide a broad-based curriculum to enable students to function as mature, thinking, responsible adults in a changing world.
to instill a positive attitude of a physically healthy lifestyle.
to support the Roman Catholic influence of the home so that students will develop an internal moral structure to guide decisions.
We strive to be a Catholic, co-educational, preparatory school community of students, parents, faculty and alumni Where all members feel respected and valued as individuals, and where each has an opportunity to contribute their gifts; and Where we pursue excellence - academically, creatively, spiritually, morally and physically; and Where our Christ-like attitude will be recognized through a reverence for God and courageous acts of charity. We do this in the hope of being the compassionate presence of Jesus in our world.
At Duchesne High School, we are guided by one mission: to educate students in mind, body and spirit. We are a Catholic, coeducational, college preparatory school with a tradition of excellence reaching back to 1924. Challenging academics, competitive athletics and vibrant student activities create a thriving community where faith is our cornerstone. Combined with our superior academic opportunities and college preparatory environment, our affordable tuition positions Duchesne as an outstanding value in private Catholic education.
While students follow a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, Duchesne High School's programs are designed for a wide range of academic abilities - from honors courses that challenge the intellectually gifted to basic courses that strengthen fundamental skills. A variety of elective courses allow students to tailor courses of study according to personal interests and career goals. Additionally, students can choose from 15 advanced college credit courses, covering all core academic subjects. Our college acceptance rate is 100 percent, and many graduates earn significant scholarship offers for superior performance in the classroom and community. To ready our students for future careers, technology is incorporated into all aspects of the curriculum.
Duchesne's cocurricular activities ensure that all students are able to develop their individual gifts. From championship athletics to performing arts and service organizations, our programs encourage students to find unique niches that complement their education. Our campus ministry integrates faith into all aspects of our curriculum and student life. Retreats, sacraments, Christian service and prayer groups create an atmosphere where students pursue the chance to make a difference in our world and cultivate personal relationships with God.
