OLSH opened its doors in September 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.
The 1979 Supreme Court decision upholding free transportation for non-public school students is significant in the history of the school in that it broadened the school's recruitment base. Currently students from 29 different school districts come together to form the OLSH community.
The OLSH Athletic Program offers twenty interscholastic sports teams for students.
- Girls Basketball
- Boys Basketball
- Freshman Boys Basketball
- Girls & Boys Bowling
