Welcome to Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory!

SHC is a Catholic, college preparatory high school located in the heart of San Francisco’s cultural center. At SHC, we provide an academically rigorous and intellectually stimulating experience for our students, guiding them to achieve their very best. We strive to tap our students’ talents and passions and support them in their interests. Students at SHC will find that they have all the tools and technology at their fingertips to succeed.

The main tenets that SHC was initially founded upon in 1852 remain today: a commitment to serving San Francisco’s diverse youth and providing an academically rigorous, Catholic education. We are proud of our vibrant, close-knit community that is born from a shared mission and vision. We all work together to educate today’s youth and create tomorrow’s leaders.

We appreciate your interest in our school. Our urban campus is a cultural oasis rich with educational opportunities. We invite you to come see for yourself what sets SHC apart.
