Fantastic school with great academics featuring a multitude of AP, dual enrollment and honors courses. Opportunities to be on staff of local newspapers, work with business executives on real community projects and student filled faculty positions give students valuable experience in real world positions of responsibility. Shaw is a dream school for any student!

Both of my sons graduated from Archbishop Shaw High School. They both went on to graduate from college in four years because they were well prepared for the academics and social culture that they would experience. They were both able to take college credit and AP classes where they were able to enter college with earned credit hours giving them a jump on their college courses. They were both extremely active in multiple sports as well as many extra curricular clubs. And most importantly they were able to strengthen their relationship with God through the many religious program the school offers through masses, youth ministry, retreats, service projects, and many more. Archbishop Shaw has a lot to offer and I highly recommend the school to anyone looking for a diverse Catholic school for their son.
I was the only person from my school to go to Shaw and when I first started I was very nervous. The teachers are very nice and offer help whenever it is needed. There's something for everybody here. Whether it's chess club or ultimate frisbee or magic cards there's a club for you. There's plenty of school events throughout the year and everybody has a role in the school. I couldn't think of a better place to spend the best years of my life and I would definitely recommend it for anyone.
