The Shipley School is a coeducational, independent day school serving approximately 830 students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade in the Philadelphia suburb of Bryn Mawr. Founded in 1894 by the Shipley sisters as a school pioneering women’s education, Shipley continues to build upon this rich tradition and illustrious history as a national leader in innovative educational practices that combine academic excellence and character development. The school’s exceptional college-preparatory curriculum requires students to think deeply, to approach problems creatively, and to be daring in their intellectual pursuits. Shipley knows that students are most successful when academic rigor is combined with concern for students’ individual needs and interests and their social, emotional, and ethical growth. As students are challenged in and out of the classroom, they are also supported in discovering and capitalizing on their strengths, setting goals and finding a sense of purpose, developing positive relationships with others, and understanding their roles and responsibilities as members of a community. The result is that Shipley graduates have the skills, knowledge, self-awareness, and confidence to be successful in college and in life as well as the empathy and compassion to be active and responsible citizens who make a positive difference in the world around them. Shipley inspires and prepares students to live a life of purpose: to grow intellectually, act compassionately, and lead courageously. It is a community for change-makers, built by change-makers.
