History[edit]

Loyola Sacred Heart was founded in 1873. It originally existed as two separated schools: Loyola High School, a boys-only institution founded by the Jesuits; and Sacred Heart Academy for Girls, founded by the Sisters of Providence.

In 1974 the two schools merged into a new school, ultimately called Loyola Sacred Heart High School. The first principal of the co-ed school was Orlando R. Barone of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who served for six years.
