Sacred Hearts Academy, also known as Sacred Hearts or SHA, is located on 3253 Waiʻalae Avenue, in the town of Kaimuki in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, is a historic Roman Catholic college preparatory school for girls founded in 1909 to serve the needs of early Hawaiʻi Catholics in the former Territory of Hawaiʻi. The school maintains a special relationship with Chaminade University of Honolulu and the all-boys Saint Louis School, both administered by the Society of Mary.
Sacred Hearts was originally founded by nuns from the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the religious order of Father Damien. The precursor of the institution was founded as a boarding and day school next to the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace in Honolulu in 1859.The current manifestation was founded in 1909 as a boarding school, it grew rapidly within the next decade and, by the 1920s, more buildings were added to accommodate the students. The sisters ran the school until 1990, when it passed into lay administration.
Sacred Hearts has served as a filming location for several television shows set and shot on location in Hawaii. The season 6 finale of the ABC series Lost was filmed there. In Hawaii Five-0, Sacred Hearts was used as Grace Williams' school.
