Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School (Coraopolis)

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School is a private Catholic high school in Moon Township, Pennsylvania. Located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh, it is a ministry of the Felician Sisters. Among students and in colloquial terms, it is referred to as OLSH. The students who attend the school refer to themselves as "OLSHies", "OLSHians",or "OLSHines".

History

OLSH opened it's doors in September of 1932 to girls in the ninth and tenth grades. Some of the students studied to enter the sisterhood; others came from nearby communities. Eventually provisions were made for boarders as well. By the late sixties, the aspirancy and the boarding facilities were phased out and OLSH was ready to enter a new era.

In 1970, with the permission of the diocese of Pittsburgh and the approval of the administration of the Felician Sisters, the first boys were admitted to OLSH. The years that followed have seen a steady increase in numbers and in programs and activities for both young men and women at OLSH.

In 1979, the Supreme Court decision upholding free transportation for non-public school students is significant in the history of the school in that it has broadened the recruitment base of the school. Currently students from 21 different school districts come together to form the OLSH community.

Location

OLSH is located on a 75-acre campus in Moon Township, about 12 miles west of Pittsburgh.
