Pomona Catholic High School is a private, Roman Catholic, all-girls middle and high school in Pomona, California built in 1949. It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It is a part of the tri-school community existing between St. Lucy's Priory High School and Damien High School.
Holy Name Academy, a boarding high school for girls, located on Holt Avenue in Pomona, California, closed its doors in June 1949. In September of that year, it was reopened by Monsignor English, pastor of St. Joseph's Church, as a high school for both boys and girls of the parish and surrounding parishes. Newly staffed by the Felician Sisters, it was named Pomona Catholic High School. Despite the expanding population, it was able to provide Catholic education for the next ten years. Then, in 1959, Pomona Catholic Boys High School (now Damien High School) opened in nearby La Verne.
