Meet the Head of School

Dear Friends:

Welcome to our website. Duchesne Academy is an all-girls, Catholic, Independent, Sacred Heart high school located in midtown Omaha. We have been educating young women for nearly 140 years. In the past 20 years, we added a co-ed preschool for children ages 3-5.

Duchesne is a unique and wonderful school that celebrates our rich history while preparing our students for the challenges and opportunities of today and tomorrow. Our girls enjoy not just equal opportunity, but every opportunity. They come to us as girls and leave as women ready for college and life.

Love is our Mission. This bold statement captures the spirit of Duchesne that I see in the classrooms, on the courts, in the preschool, and on the stage.

We are members of a Network of 24 Sacred Heart schools in the United States and Canada and over 140 additional Sacred Heart schools around the world. Our Network shares a common philosophy that embraces faith, knowledge, social awareness, the building of community and personal growth. These values, articulated in our 5 Sacred Heart Goals, are the foundation from which our girls build their confidence and character. As a Network, we partner to create national and international opportunities for our students and faculty. This ranges from student exchanges, international trips, network-wide service opportunities, and collegiality for our faculty and staff.

Whether you are new to the school or an old friend, I encourage you to visit our campus to experience the welcoming spirit of Duchesne. All are welcome!
