Duchesne has grown its course offerings significantly since 2000
High school is such an important time for young people to experience new ideas, new ways of life, new people, and places. Our classrooms and laboratories are where those new experiences and ideas take place.
Over the last two decades, Duchesne has significantly increased the opportunities offered to our students through new electives and new extracurricular choices while ensuring a solid foundation in the fundamentals of a liberal arts education.
Dual Enrollment: Students can earn college credit while completing a high school diploma in advanced placement theology, calculus, physics, Spanish, or U.S. history.
Advanced Placement: Students may choose from 12 courses, the most Duchesne has ever offered.
Career Exploration: Students learn more about a discipline they may be considering as a college major. Courses explore culinary arts, economics, personal finance, and marketing, to name a few.
Social Awareness: Our social studies department offers new lenses through which to better understand our world: art history, psychology, human development, international relations, civil rights, and lessons of the Holocaust.
Science: Students learn about job paths in environmental science, public health, and biomedicine. In fact, students contribute to research conducted by UNMC teams.
The Arts: Available courses have more than doubled and offer our aspiring artists new mediums of expression to add to their portfolios if art school is their chosen destination, including a new AP studio design offering.
Information Technology: We prepare students for jobs that do not even exist yet through four years of progressive coding and engineering classes.
