Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart
Senior: Being a new girl entering Duchesne in ninth grade, I was worried about making friends. However, Duchesne offers a welcoming environment that is focused on creating community. In the first month of school, I attended an orientation dance, spirit week, and fish week. Spirit week is a way to create community among the entire upper school and ends with Unity Day, which includes a lot of games and competitions between the grades. Plus, throughout the rest of the school year, there were plenty of opportunities to make friends by joining clubs, playing sports, and attending events with our affiliated brother schools. Besides the Sacred Heart network, the Duchesne community is special because of its connection to other Houston schools. Whether its attending an orientation dance at Strake or a football game at St. Thomas, there are many chances to have a co-ed experience while still enjoying all the benefits that come from an all-girls education.
