Welcome to Sacred Heart Cathedral!

We are honored by your interest in our school.

Sacred Heart Cathedral is a college preparatory school in the heart of San Francisco, proudly educating students since 1852.

We designed this section of the website to guide you through the admissions process. But the best way for you to get a feel for our warm community, and for us to get to know you, is to plan a visit. We offer an open house, an Irish for a Day Program for students and parent visits. We are proud of our reputation and legacy and hope you will visit us to see why. 

When you visit SHC, you will find classrooms that encourage creativity, enthusiastic teachers who challenge our students to excel and an inclusive, supportive community. You will find countless learning opportunities beyond the classroom that tap your passions, encourage new interests and lay the foundations for lifelong friendships. Come see our amazing teachers in action and meet your future friends and classmates.  

We look forward to seeing you here!
