Established in 1852.
Owned by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese and sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers and the Daughters of Charity, Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory offers Catholic co-education to the youth of San Francisco. This model was achieved in 1987, when two of the city’s oldest Catholic high schools, Sacred Heart High School and Cathedral High School, culminated twenty years of active cooperation by officially merging. Today, SHC continues its tradition of growing with the times and with the city. San Francisco is known globally to be on the cutting edge of technological advances. SHC reflects this energy through a commitment to technology in the classroom, cutting-edge curriculum and enthusiastic, innovative teachers developing the leaders of tomorrow.
