Special Events & Projects

August 2015

Dear Archbishop Shaw Family,

We prepare the young for college, work, life, and eternity!  Your support has enabled us to enhance our educational programs at Archbishop Shaw and provide needed tuition assistance for families who believe in Catholic, Salesian education.  We are in the second year of our five year Strategic Plan which is our detailed strategy for bringing Archbishop Shaw into a “New Era”. Three major improvements made this year are just a few areas moving us toward greater success!

  • New initiatives to our curriculum: Engineering, Entrepreneurship, TV/Film Production.
  • Complete renovations to the second floor of the main building including floors, ceilings, and lighting, and to the first floor of the gym including locker rooms and air conditioning. In addition, lights have been installed at Fr. Leo Wintersheidt Baseball Stadium.
  • A student body increase to nearly 500 students.

We are enthusiastic about the school year ahead, 2015-16, which began with a wonderful celebration of our Alumnus of the Year Banquet on August 8, where we recognized not only those Alumni who have become great success stories in our community, but also those who are honorary members of our Archbishop Shaw community in both service and support!  Our upcoming Shrimp Cook-off, September 12, on our beautiful 72 acre campus saw over 3,500 gather last year for a day of great family fun and spirit!  This coming spring, we will hold our annual “Eagles in the Oaks” as a REUNION WEEKEND and details will be sent out very soon!

We are presently seeking Class Liaisons to help connect with alumni and friends to build on the solid foundations of friendship that have been developed through Archbishop Shaw High School.

Thank you for your generous contributions and involvement, and we hope to continue partnering with you to make Archbishop Shaw High School the pride of Greater New Orleans!
