Sacred Heart-Griffin High School is Springfield, Illinois' largest private high school.
SHG opened in the fall of 1988 after Sacred Heart Academy, an all-girls Catholic high school merged with Griffin High School, an all-boys Catholic High School located down the street.
The part of campus which formerly housed Griffin High School is now known as the West Campus. The part of campus which was home to Sacred Heart Academy is known as the East Campus. Both facilities are used by SHG, with most of the school's athletic facilities being located on the West Campus and the majority of the academic facilities being located on the East Campus.
East Campus hosts the chapel, campus ministry - the heart of the school - classrooms, science labs, and administrative offices located on a beautifully spacious campus adjacent to the Dominican Sisters Motherhouse. East Campus also includes Dominican Hall, home to the school's outstanding performing arts center. The fully equipped theatre welcome sell-out crowds for the annual school musical. A few addition to the school's East Campus is the recently renovated LRS Studio, a large multi-media center. It was designed with flexible seating and new technology capabilities, allowing our students, faculty and the larger community to utilize the space for more dynamic instruction, presentations and productive meetings.
West Campus is home to Ken Leonard Field, the school's state-of-the-art football and soccer field, as well as Comstock Field, the school's all turf baseball field. The newly renovated softball field, track and tennis courts are also part of the school's multi-sport complex. West Campus also houses AthletiCare, a facility of HSHS St. John's Hospital, which provides orthopedic services and therapy to the Springfield community. St. John's Hospital offers SHG an educational partnership that exposes students to various healthcare professions.
