Originally named Saint Ferdinand High School (a parish school for girls established in 1947), the new Bishop Alemany High School opened in 1956. Owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and named in honor of Joseph Sadoc Alemany, O.P., Bishop Alemany High School, like the man, has had the “desire to be of service” as its hallmark from the beginning.

Today, Bishop Alemany High School is thriving, boasting a racially and culturally diverse student body. As numerous alumni before them, today’s students strive to continue a proud tradition being of service to the community, being “a people dedicated to service”, while also excelling academically. This tradition of excellence manifests itself in a full Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum in addition to a strong college-preparatory program; 98% of our graduates go on to college.

Bishop Alemany High School is located in Mission Hills, California on a beautiful green campus. The school has over 65 classrooms, as well as a theater, media center, chapel, gym, track, swimming pool, and football, soccer and baseball fields. At its present location, Bishop Alemany High School is the largest school in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It is a campus reflecting the beauty of nature, and symbolic of the planting and nurturing of the seed of knowledge occurring in the classrooms.
