Lone Mountain College was a college acquired by the University of San Francisco in 1978.[1]


It was built and founded by the Religious of the Sacred Heart as Sacred Heart Academy in Menlo Park, California, in 1898, and became College of the Sacred Heart in 1921. In the 1930s, it moved to San Francisco, California, and became San Francisco College for Women,[2] then changed its name again to Lone Mountain College, in 1969, at which time the College began admitting men and became co-educational.
