Our Program

Teaching with Learning in Mind

Every student learns differently. Some are visual. Some are hands-on. Some learn best through repetition. We teach with the individual in mind, so all types of learners are able to thrive.


While students may experience our curriculum in unique ways, a Shipley education remains rooted in a fundamental ideal: We believe in a rigorous educational standard, one designed to foster not only creativity and individual thinking, but a sense of preparedness and emotional development as well. It is through the integration of these concepts that our students receive the most well rounded education available.

Our Upper School students master Honors Calculus and conversational Mandarin, and our horticulture club competes annually in the Philadelphia Flower Show. Service learning is woven throughout our Pre-K through grade 12 curriculum to underscore the importance of community awareness. We are open to adding new opportunities as the needs arise. So from 3-D printing to Picasso, there are plenty of landmarks to line each student’s unique educational path.
