Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory is a Lasallian Vincentian Catholic high school located in the heart of San Francisco’s cultural center. We are dedicated to the intellectual and academic excellence of our students, and we strive to develop the unique talents and passions of each individual. We welcome the Bay Area’s brightest to our inclusive community. Our dynamic curriculum, integrated technology and dedicated and innovative teachers prepare our students for success. Hundreds of colleges across the country, including all of US News & World Reports Top 10 National Universities, accept SHC graduates.
We believe in the power of student-centered learning— that their natural curiosity should drive their intellectual path. Academic rigor starts with an innate desire to learn. This inquiry, drive and thirst for knowledge are the most important elements of their education. It’s our desire to provide students with the highest-quality resources, the passion and training of our faculty, and the time and flexibility to excel throughout these four transformative years.
SHC’s curriculum includes rigorous core classes, engaging electives and challenging Honors and Advanced Placement courses. We teach our students to use the tools most relevant to them in a digitally diverse and ever-changing world. Our students have the autonomy to select the technology of their choice with our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, a philosophy more in line with practices in current higher education and their future workplace.
Students and their families choose SHC for the strength of our academics, our faith and values, our extensive array of cocurricular opportunities, and for the warmth of our inclusive and nurturing community.
