The Sisters of Mount Carmel opened the school in 1913. A poor area economy forced the school to close in 1928 but it reopened in September 1931 due to efforts from Father J. Maurice Bourgeois.

In May 2015 a group of parents protested, asking for the school to remove principal Dianne Fontenot, complaining about a decrease in student enrollment and excessive firing of personnel.

The school has a high school and elementary school section. Both the elementary and high school each house administrative offices and a chapel. The high school chapel has a confessional, and the high school has 13 classrooms, a library, a science laboratory, a commons area, a dining area, and a gymnasium. The elementary school has 24 classrooms, two libraries, a gymnasium, a cafeteria, and a science laboratory.

As of 2014[update] the school had 718 students in grades K-12, with 464 of them in K-8 and 254 in high school. As of 2014 students originated from Ville Platte, Bunkie, Grand Prairie, Mamou, Opelousas, Pine Prairie, Vidrine, Washington, and Whiteville.

Sacred Heart and Ville Platte High School, since 2000, regularly play each other in the Tee Cotton Bowl. Jeré Longman of The New York Times stated that this game was created as a "unifying civic gesture".
