Why Immaculate Heart?

Immaculate Heart High School is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school dedicated to the intellectual, spiritual, moral and social development of our students in grades nine through twelve. In partnership with parents, we foster academic excellence in an environment that encourages students to develop a deep concern for things of the heart as well as the mind through leadership, service and a lifelong commitment to Christian values.

For 115 years and more than 12,000 graduates after our founding, we continue to attract very talented and highly motivated students who represent the religious, ethnic and socio-economic diversity of the City of Los Angeles and its suburbs. We provide students with a strong foundation that prepares them for a successful transition into college and beyond.

We invite you to learn more about our academic and extracurricular programs, and we look forward to meeting you and your families throughout the admissions process.

Sage, Class of 2024

Immaculate Heart is so unique in so many different ways, from the special connection between the girls, to the spirit and happiness throughout the school that you would not find anywhere else. At Immaculate Heart, there is a great sense of unity, positivity, and passion for what we are doing. The teachers are always so involved and make the classes fun, and the campus is so welcoming!
College Matriculation
Virtually 100% of Immaculate Heart's graduates go on to college immediately after graduation, many to some of the most prestigious institutions in the country. Each year, Immaculate Heart students are recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program, and many students earn significant scholarships to colleges and universities.
We are proud to offer all students a rigorous college preparatory program that exceeds the requirements for admission to the University of California nd California State University school systems.

Students who wish to apply to the high school are invited to attend all of our pre-admission events. We hope that by connecting with campus and speaking with our dedicated faculty and student leaders, you will learn more about the rich history and traditions of our school, the legacy of academic excellence, and the broad range of opportunities for student life.

Thank you, and we look forward to meeting you soon!

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.
