Theology Department

Wholeheartedly supporting the school’s philosophy, the Theology Department seeks not only to foster an intellectual awareness of the essential elements of the Catholic faith, but to lead each student toward a consciousness of her personal relationship with God which she is called to live out through active involvement in service to her community. Through a study of Scripture and tradition, the Church and sacramental life, and by a careful examination of values and moral issues, students are challenged to develop mature faith convictions. The Theology Department enables the young women of Immaculate Heart to realize, share, and celebrate their gifts, while recognizing their responsibility for and connection with all of human life and creation. Students are urged to become women of great heart and right conscience, to live Gospel-centered lives patterned after the vision of Jesus, to think broadly and to question liberally in their pursuit of wisdom and truth, so that their religious education will lead them into a growing realization of their call to "live justly, love tenderly, and walk humbly" with their God, with creation, and with the whole of the human community.

A Catholic, independent college preparatory school for girls in grades 6 through 12, Immaculate Heart has 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 celebrate more than a century of nurturing the spiritual, intellectual, social and moral development of students as they distinguish themselves as women of great heart and right conscience.
