Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic School was established in 1947 under the name of YLAC FREE SCHOOL. The school was changed to Sta. Mesa Parochial School in 1953 under the Capuchin Fathers. In 1995, the management of the institution was turned over to the Diocesan Fathers upon the instruction of His Eminence Jaime Cardinal Sin, the Archbishop of Manila and became a member of MAPSA (Manila Archdiocesan and Parochial Schools Assoc.). In 2007, as a result of the Board of Trustees resolutions, Sta. Mesa Parochial School changed its name to SACRED HEART OF JESUS CATHOLIC SCHOOL and obtained its Government Permit to offer the complete Secondary Course. In 2013, the school was granted candidate status by PAASCU and passed the accreditation in 2015 for Level 1. It was in the same year that the school was granted permit by the Department of Education to offer Senior High School (Grades 11 and 12). Consequently, the Curriculum for Academic track (Humanities and Social Science, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and Accounting and Business Management) was approved and ready for implementation. In 2019, the school was granted Level II status by PAASCU. The institution continues to sustain its commitment to achieve Academic Excellence and total quality service through continuous improvement of its programs. With the infinite love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit and intercession of the Blessed Mother, SHJCS looks ahead with great optimism for a better future.

A people called by the Father in Jesus Christ to become a Community of persons with Fullness of Life witnessing to the Kingdom of God by living the Paschal Mystery in the power of the Holy Spirit with Mary as Companion.
