All students of Archbishop Shaw High School are required to study the Gospel and to consider seriously what effects it should have upon their daily lives. An important aspect of the Gospel is the care and concern that we each should have for our brothers and sisters. We are each gifted with unique talents and we have the obligation to share those talents with others. In recognition of this need, service projects are mandatory for all students at each grade level.
