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.

"My daughter has gone from being too shy to open her mouth during the concert in preschool to a scholar, a thespian, an athlete, a debater, and a philanthropist. All of these opportunities came through Villa Duchesne - all of them. When she finished her last day, she came home in tears. I asked what was wrong and she said that she will miss her teachers. I asked which ones and she replied, "All of them!"
