Theology

Through her study of theology, a Villa Duchesne graduate will have a knowledge of the Judeo/Christian scriptures to be able to understand and connect them to her daily life; have a strong foundation of the Catholic faith, including its history, doctrine, and worship; have the necessary skills to reflect upon and evaluate her own attitudes and behaviors toward God, self, and others; have explored and experienced various forms of spirituality and prayer methods that will enhance and sustain her life after graduation; and understand what it means to live a life of integrity, morality, social activism, and service with a profound respect for all types of diversity.

"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!"
