Academic Success


Students at Duchesne Academy are encouraged to become independent learners who are self-aware and able to express their academic needs. Most academic support is provided through classroom differentiation and personal attention from faculty. Students make appointments to see their teachers during free periods, break, lunch, before school, and after school. When additional support is necessary, the Academic Counselor will assist in determining a course of action.

The Academic Counselor:

  • Assists students in identifying their learning strengths
  • Coordinates NHS Peer Tutoring program
  • Helps students interpret standardized test results
  • Offers strategies for academic success
  • Supports students with learning needs
  • Teaches study skills in Freshman Seminar
  • Works with students individually and in groups
