English

At Villa Duchesne girls learn to write well. One hundred percent of our seniors are ready for college-level work in English (compared with only 73 percent in the state and 66 percent in the nation). The cornerstone of the Villa Duchesne English program is the individual writing conference. Each student meets individually with her English teacher an average of six times per year to conference her writing. Each student revises her work so that she can submit a new composition, based on the discussion in conference and the completed editing changes, for a second grade.

"The one thing I found so unique about Villa was being part of a worldwide network of schools. My daughter participated in the Taiwan Exchange Program. She went to the Sacred Heart school of Taipei, Taiwan. She was there for three weeks and we in turn hosted several students at our home as part of a cultural exchange. We share a lot with other schools around the country and around the world."
