Duchesne is firmly committed to the growth and development of its students. Acknowledging that adolescence is a period of substantial growth in all areas, Duchesne offers students access to a counselor in each of the guidance domains:


The counselor to student ratio at Duchesne averages 1:100, less than half the suggested ratio of the American School Counselor Association.

Additionally, your daughter will have a faculty advisor who will help her plan her course of study and provide encouragement throughout her four years at Duchesne. Duchesne students can also rely on upper-class students for encouragement through our Nests and Peer Facilitating programs. The Nests program ensures each freshman and transfer student has group, consisting of members from each class, on whom she can rely to help her find her classes and feel at home on campus.
