In fall 2004 the school was created by a merger of Saint John Neumann High School, established in 1934, and Saint Maria Goretti High School, established in 1955.[2][3][4] The school is located in the former Goretti campus. In 2005 most of the students at Neumann Goretti came from South Philadelphia.[5] During the first school year Neumann Goretti used the Neumann athletic fields.[2] The former Neumann campus became the St. John Neumann Place, a housing development for senior citizens.[6]
