Oakland Catholic High School is a private, Roman Catholic college preparatory school for girls, located in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. It was established by Bishop Donald Wuerl in 1989 as the merger of former all-girl parish high schools of Sacred Heart and St. Paul Cathedral to serve as a sister school for Central Catholic. Approximately 600 students matriculate at Oakland Catholic and the school draws female students from all over the City of Pittsburgh and the suburbs. Nearly 98% of its students attend four-year universities.

Oakland Catholic High School finished its construction for the 2008-2009 school year.


Oakland Catholic is known for its Quad A girls basketball team. From 1998–2008 they were involved in every District Championship (W.P.I.A.L.) game. They also won several Pennsylvania State Championship titles.
