Empowered to question. Equipped to lead.


Duchesne educates young women to be active participants in their own development. We provide a safe, loving place for them to learn how to evaluate complex matters with poise and discernment. We are preparing our students not only for college, but for a lifelong pursuit of faith, understanding, and wisdom. Duchesne Academy is an all-girls Catholic high school in the heart of Omaha. Celebrating Sacred Heart values, we empower insightful, compassionate women with a sense of social responsibility and a deeply rooted spiritual life. When these confident, adept women go out into the world, they lead change in their communities. We have a majestic home in what has grown into one of the most diverse neighborhoods of Omaha. The grand, light-filled hallways echo with laughter between classes. With decades of careful stewardship, we have preserved our original historic building as well as the lively spirit within it. As we curate a deliberately intimate class size, all of our students receive individual attention and a sense of belonging. We are dedicated to preserving our traditions while evolving to serve the women of the future — always mindful of our goal to educate well-rounded leaders for the world.
