Letter from the Principal
Rev. John E. Donia
Welcome to Bishop Shanahan High School!
For over sixty years, Shanahan has provided a high-quality Catholic education to the young people of Chester County. As you navigate this website and visit our beautiful campus, you will discover those things which make Bishop Shanahan High School the right choice for so many families. 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.
With Catholic values as its core, the educational experience at Bishop Shanahan High School is centered on personal relationships, innovation, and creativity. Shanahan emphasizes academic excellence, faith formation, inclusion, respect for the individual, service, and social justice. Our mission is to prepare all students to be critical thinkers and moral stewards in a rapidly evolving global environment. In essence, we seek to form People of God; People for Others.
I hope you will talk with our teachers, our coaches, our alumni, our current students, and their parents/guardians. They will tell you more than any website ever can about what it means to be a Shanahan Eagle.
I can promise you this: Bishop Shanahan High School is a great place to be a 14-18 year old human being. Come and see for yourself!
God Bless You,
