Sacred Heart High School is a Roman Catholic parochial school in the historic district of downtown Hattiesburg, Mississippi where it is surrounded by Victorian-era homes and other churches. It is the only High School in the Northern Deanery of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Biloxi. Sacred Heart Catholic High School was detached from the elementary school on June 8, 2010 when the Hattiesburg City Council voted to accept a bid of $2.5 million for the city-owned property known as First Baptist Church. The acquisition has added 40 classrooms to the school. Since the acquisition of the new building, the student population has expanded from just over 500 to over 700 students. Sacred Heart was founded in 1900 by the Sisters of Mercy. Sacred Heart Catholic School is one of the oldest existing schools in Hattiesburg. In October, 1900, Father Sylvester Greimel opened Sacred Heart Catholic School, the first Catholic school in the area, using the sacristy of the church and the rectory for classes, he was the first resident pastor at Sacred Heart Church.
His sister, Miss Anne Greimel, was principal. Thirty-five students were enrolled; the Sisters of Mercy arrived in September 1902. A convent and school had been built for them on Walnut Street, next to the church. In 1908, the first class of seniors graduated from the school; the current Sacred Heart Church was built in 1927 and 1928. The current elementary building was built in 1951 and the convent, now used for administrative offices and art room was built in 1959; the Class of 1966 were the last to graduate from Sacred Heart when the high school closed due to low enrollment. Until 2004, Sacred Heart only offered classes through the 8th grade. In 2004 Sacred Heart Catholic School was granted permission by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Biloxi to reopen its high school by adding the 9th and 10th grades. In 2005, the 11th grade was added and in 2006 the 12th grade was added; the Class of 2007 was the first class of seniors to graduated from Sacred Heart in 41 years.

The school is a co-educational institution open to students irrespective of caste, colour and religion; the Indo-Pakistan war of 1965 affected the administrative set up of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of Jesus and Mary in India. The Provincial mother Declan was contemplating opening new avenues for apostolic activities. At that time some military officials contacted Mother Declan, asking for sisters to take over the Garrison school, a small primary school at Yol military camp in Himachal Pradesh. A military bungalow was given to the sisters as residence and several similar bungalows nearby to be used for the school, run by an elderly lady. On 26 August 1966, five sisters arrived in Yol.

The classes started in Sidhpur in 1969; the convent in Sidhpur was built later. The first prize distribution function was held at the school in Yol on 5 December 1969.

Sacred Heart High School (Roseville, Michigan)
Sacred Heart High School was a Roman Catholic high school in Roseville, MI. It operated under the jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Detroit; when Father Louis Van Straelan arrived in 1879 as the new pastor he recognized the need for a Cathilic school in the community. In September 1882 Sacred Heart opened its new schoolhouse to twelve students in grades one through eight. Father Van Straelan expected any pastor that followed him would continue his efforts, that the school would grow with the community; when he was transferred the decision was to not replace him with a resident pastor. His departure ended his school program. In 1918 another new pastor, Father Dennis P. Tighe recognized the educational needs of the community, he had the church basement divided into classrooms, hired three lay instructors. In 1920 he received permission to construct a new school, contacted the Mother Superior of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for permission to have three nuns teach at the new school.
In 1921, with the construction of the school building complete, the nuns began teaching 130 students in grades 1 through 8. The Archdiocese of Detroit Archives, the IHM chronicles seem to accept 1921 as the date Sacred Heart School was established. In 1928 a ninth grade was added, in 1930 and 1931 10th and 11th grades were added respectively; the school remained at grades 1 through 11 until 1936 when the impact of global depression forced the elimination of the secondary grades. By the mid 50's the economy and confidence in it had recovered enough that by 1955 enrollment in the elementary grades had grown to over 1,100 students. Ground was broken for a new high school and ninth grade classes began in September 1955; the school added grades 10, 11, 12 over the next 3 years to accommodate the advancing students. Sacred Heart High School remained open until 1971 when mounting debt, the passing of the pastor, Rev. Raymond Clancy, forced the parish to close the school at the end of the 1970-71 school year.
