Meet the Principal
I am the principal at Duchesne, which means that 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 135 years of tradition, and small size. But what makes us truly different is our Sacred Heart Mission. Our outstanding students and graduates have made the values of Sacred Heart part of their 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!
