Louisville High School is an independently run Roman Catholic college preparatory high school for young women located on Mulholland Drive in Woodland Hills in Los Angeles at the Western end of the San Fernando Valley. The school is sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Louis, an order founded in France during the 19th century by Abbé Louis Eugène Marie Bautain, though most of the current Sisters hail from Ireland.


The convent of the Sisters of St. Louis lies on a mount overlooking the school. The school and convent are built on what was once Manzanita Ranch, the former estate of actress Marjorie Rambeau.[citation needed] Manzanita refers to a small evergreen shrub that grows on the hills surrounding Louisville. Under the leadership of Sister Mary Ronan, Manzanita Ranch was purchased for renovation and construction. The first class of 9th grade students entered in September 1960.[citation needed]Louisville is close with the all boys college preparatory school Crespi Carmelite High School.[citation needed]

The Louisville High School Mock Trial team has won 10 Los Angeles County Championships, most recently in 2013. The Mock Trial team won the California State Championship in 1993, and came in 4th place in 2013.
