About Immaculate Heart
Welcome to our web site. As we begin our 108th year of educating the minds and hearts of young women, it is with great pride that we reflect on our rich history and decades of cherished traditions. But most of all, we celebrate more than a century of nurturing the spiritual, intellectual, social and moral development of students whose formal education has been entrusted to our care.
True to our philosophy and mission, we have long been committed to addressing the uniqueness of each individual and thereby strengthening her belief in herself and in her seemingly unlimited potential. Many of our earliest graduates were pioneers in fields rarely open to women. Today, virtually 100% of our students go on to college immediately after graduation
, often to some of the most prestigious in the country. Our alumnae, who number more than 10,000, have distinguished themselves as women of great heart and right conscience through their leadership and service in the home, in the church, in the community and in their professional lives.
An independent, Catholic, college preparatory school, governed by a board of trustees
, we have been located on a beautiful hillside property in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles
since our founding by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1906. We continue to attract very talented and highly motivated young women who represent the religious, ethnic, and socio-economic diversity of the City of Los Angeles and its suburbs. Our students are immersed in an exciting and challenging curriculum that inspires a love of learning while demanding the focus and self-discipline necessary for success in college and beyond.
Complementing the academic program, we offer a wide spectrum of extracurricular activities
designed to help students to explore their interests and to tap into their special gifts and talents.
We hope that you will enjoy your visit to our web site as you explore Immaculate Heart. We welcome your questions, ideas and concerns. Our connection with you is important to us.
