Steeped in beloved traditions, Immaculate Heart is a private, Catholic, college preparatory school for young women in sixth through 12th grades. Founded in 1906 by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the school remains true to its mission: the intellectual, spiritual, moral, and social development of girls. Its campus, centrally located in Los Angeles near Griffith Park, welcomes students of geographic, ethnic and religious diversity.
Immaculate Heart’s challenging academic curriculum offers 18 Advanced Placement courses, including the new AP Capstone course. The school’s Catholic identity is rooted in service to others and social justice. Last year, students contributed more than 14,000 hours of community service.
Students engage in leadership and ministry roles through more than 30 clubs and organizations. A third of all high school students also play at least one IH sport, including basketball, cross country, diving, equestrian, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track and field and volleyball.
