From the Assistant Principal of Academics

collinsDear Prospective Parents and Students,

Archbishop Shaw High School provides an academic program that supports student learning while challenging each young man to strive for excellence. Students participate in courses that provide opportunities to stretch beyond comfort zones and find answers and more questions as they discover the world around them. Course levels (Regular, Honors, Advanced Placement, and Dual Enrollment) provide the appropriate rigor and require students to put forth the time and effort needed to succeed. Along the way, a caring faculty, a supportive guidance department, and a dedicated administration ensure equity in learning.

At Archbishop Shaw High School, learning involves the mind, body, and spirit. Each student is encouraged to learn in the classroom, on the playing field, and in his spiritual life. No matter where learning takes place, our dedicated teachers are there, alongside your son, as he puts his skills to work no matter the situation.

Thank you for visiting our website and learning more about our school. Additional links on the site will direct you to our curriculum and course offerings. I encourage you to contact our admissions director and become a member of our family.
