Msgr. Joseph Schade founded Little Flower High School of Lansdale in September 1949 with the specific purpose of offering a competitive Catholic secondary education for Catholic families not only in his parish but also for the region since the nearest Diocesan High School at that time was in the City of Philadelphia.
Until 1960, LFHS occupied a small building on the grounds of Saint Stanislaus Parish Church at Lansdale Avenue and Main Street in Lansdale, PA. The school was moved to its present location at 700 Lansdale Avenue in 1960. The name of the school was changed at that time to Lansdale Catholic High School. From 1975 to 1983 several additions were made to the building to enhance the curricular and co-curricular programs.
In 1983, Lansdale Catholic became a full member of the Secondary School System of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It became a major beneficiary of BLOCS (Business Leaders for Catholic Schools) in 1987 with the building of the Fishman Center.
