Sacred Heart High School is a private Roman Catholic junior-senior high school in Salina, Kansas. It is in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Salina.


In 1908, four sisters of St. Joseph opened Sacred Heart High School. Classes were taught in the basement of a church, while waiting for the completion of a building. With chalk, the basement was divided into four areas, with each sister responsible for one class. There were two graduates in the first class of 1912. Sacred Heart moved to its present location in the fall of 1960.[4]
