The school was founded in 1658 by Zofia Prudencjanna Ligęza and her brother-in-law Jerzy Sebastian Lubomirski. From 1658 until 1784 school was named as Collegium Resoviense and was run by the Piarists order. In the 17th and 18th centuries the school was recognized as an important cultural centre. In 1785, after the First Partition of Poland Austrian autorithies removed the school from Piarist control and changed the name to Rzeszów's Ober-Gymnasium. During World War I and Polish-Soviet War teachers and students took part in fights. In 1923 the school was named for Stanisław Konarski. During World War II many teachers, students and graduates took part in the resistance movement. In 1949 the school was reorganised into a 4-year high school and in 1964 it became a coeducational high school.
