Welcome to Shanahan!

Bishop Shanahan High School, a Catholic co-educational secondary school of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, committed to sustaining excellence, provides a strong spiritual life, along with challenging academic and rich extracurricular programs. A strong witness to Christian values and commitment to academic rigor and integrity prepare all students to be critical thinkers and moral stewards in a rapidly ​evolving global environment.


Bishop Shanahan is more than just a high school.  It is an experience that offers young men and women an educational journey of academic excellence, rich extracurricular opportunities, and a community that radiates the Christ-centered values of love, respect and responsibility.  


We offer a personalized and rigorous curriculum which has been designed to assist students to make the most of their academic talents. Students are also afforded many opportunities to discover and further their interests through the robust clubs and extracurricular activities offered at Bishop Shanahan.


​At Bishop Shanahan High School, participation in athletics is another excellent means for our students to grow as "People of God; People for Others." Through interscholastic competition, students develop a sense of teamwork, self-discipline, and school pride. Excellence, athleticism, marked goals, leadership, effort,​ and success are hallmarks of our athletics program.​
