Get Involved

 

In addition to monetary gifts, Duchesne Academy welcomes the gift of your time and expertise through a variety of volunteer opportunities. We are proud to celebrate Madeleine Sophie Barat’s desire to educate young women and her devotion to sharing the Sacred Heart of Jesus with others. It is hard-working, committed volunteers like you who help us to continue her vision while modeling to our students an excellent example of Goal 4, the building of a community as a Christian value. 

CONGÉ

Congé is Duchesne Academy’s annual dinner-auction event co-chaired by Duchesne parents, past parents, and/or alums. This festive event, held the last weekend in January each year, attracts over 500 people including business and community leaders, Duchesne families, alumnae and friends of the school. The funds raised directly support the school’s operating budget as well as need-based tuition assistance.
