Welcome from our Head of School

When I joined the Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School community, I was immediately impressed by the School’s culture. From the seriousness of purpose of articulate student ambassadors who eagerly share their academic progress to the playfulness of Oak Hill children enjoying goûter from the Villa Duchesne-City House Alumnae Association, from Student Council’s palpable desire to wisely guide the student body to the beauty of fifth graders meaningfully participating in Mass. Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School enjoys an unrivaled school culture.

When I read and reflect on the writings of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat and St. Philippine Duchesne, I feel honored for the opportunity to lead Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School. In today’s increasingly complex world, we each require even greater understanding of our faith, of Scripture, and of our Catholic Tradition. Sacred Heart education provides this to boys, girls, and young women distinctly. After nearly a decade in international business, I will never underestimate the importance of collaborating with others around the globe. A collaborative International Network of Sacred Heart Schools with shared values best prepares our students for the global context in which we live and in which they will thrive.

Thank you for your interest in Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School. I invite you to explore our website to learn more about this exceptional community.
