Immaculata High School was an all-girls Catholic high school located in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. It was open from 1921 to 1981.

The building was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]

The campus buildings received Chicago Landmark status on July 27, 1983. Still standing at Irving Park Road and Marine Drive, they were designed by Prairie School architect Barry Byrne, a onetime apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright.[2] The sculpture of Mary above the entrance, now removed, was the work of frequent Byrne collaborator Alfonso Iannelli.[3]

The Immaculata High School records are currently housed at the Women and Leadership Archives.[4]
