Meet the Principal


Dear Guests:

As the principal at Duchesne, I am in charge of all of the academic programs: teachers, curriculum, and student achievement. I am very proud of our outstanding faculty and students. I began teaching at Duchesne in 1991 and became principal in 2002. I am also a graduate of the Academy in 1985, and the mother of a 2004 graduate.

Duchesne is a very special place. We are different from most high schools because of our all-female student body, our college-preparatory curriculum, our nearly 140 years of tradition, and our small size. But what makes us truly different is our Sacred Heart Mission. I encourage you and your daughter to reflect on and to make the values of Sacred Heart part of your lives as women of faith, as curious learners and leaders, and as women empowered to make the world a better place through their community and in their relationships.

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our wonderful school!

Sincerely,

Laura Hickman A85, Ed.D.
Principal
