Immaculate Heart High School is a private, Catholic, college preparatory school for young women grades 9-12. The school is located in the Los Feliz neighborhood in Los Angeles at the intersection of Franklin and Western Avenues. The campus was owned and operated by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who had founded Immaculate Heart Convent, College and High School on their 13-acre property in 1905. Its leaders in the 1950s and 60s included Dr. Anita Marie Caspary and renowned artist Corita Kent who led a much publicized rebellion against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in 1969. The college closed in 1981 due to financial difficulties but the middle school and high school continue to operate on the original site.
