Former Bishop Gerrard High School (for girls) merged into Bishop Connolly c. 1982, making Bishop Connolly one of the nation's first co-educational Jesuit high schools. (Bishop Gerrard, operated on the campus of the former Mount Saint Mary Academy [Religious Sisters of Mercy], was itself the product of a c. 1973 merger between that school, the former Jesus Mary Academy [Religious of Jesus and Mary], Sacred Hearts Academy [Holy Union Sisters of the Sacred Hearts] and the high school of Dominican Academy [Dominican Sisters of the Presentation].) Former Msgr. Prevost High School (Brothers of Christian Instruction) moved to Bishop Connolly building in 1968 and merged into Bishop Connolly in 1972.
