Construction began in 1997 when voters approved a bond issue for building improvements in the growing district. The school board decided to name the school after the nearby historic village of Stony Creek. The 420,000 sq ft (39,000 m2) high school opened in 2001 at a total cost of $64 million. The building first housed Rochester Adams students when their school was being renovated. It later housed Rochester High School Students in the 2001-2002 school year. The building also housed North Hill Elementary students when their school was receiving extensive renovations in the 2002-2003 school year but, the elementary students only attended class in half of the school while the other half was used by students of Stoney Creek.
The first Principal was Daniel Hickey, who retired in 2009. The second principal of Stoney Creek High School was Larry Goralski, who was named the Michigan Association of Student Councils (MASC) Principal of the Year in 2010. Dr. Cathryn Skedel is the current principal.
The Stoney Creek cheer team was state champions in 2010 winning the school's first state championship in any sport.
The Stoney Creek Varsity dance team was State champions for two consecutive seasons from 2010-2011 at the UDA dance competition.
