About Shipley

Community Life & Diversity

“We know that students do better in a school that is a real community, a school in which they can forge strong relationships with adults. We also know that students do better when their parents, alumni, and other friends are involved in their school.”
- Steven S. Piltch, Head of School

Diversity Mission Statement

At Shipley, we uphold and promote the integrity of each individual. We nurture a concern for others, self-worth, and personal achievement. We are dedicated to the ongoing process of creating a safe and accepting environment for all people. We value and honor differences in all forms, including but not limited to ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.

Shipley is such a community — a group of parents, students, faculty and staff, alumni, and friends who have a common goal. They work hard together, they make friends, and they have fun together — all to provide the best education possible for our students.

Shipley is committed to preparing its students to be leaders in a global society and to sustaining a vibrant, inclusive, and caring multicultural community. The goal of raising cultural awareness and understanding is reflected in many areas of school life. Read more about Diversity at Shipley >>>

Service Learning

A Shipley education balances individual achievement with a concern for others. From Pre-K through 12th grade, our service learning program encourages students to be compassionate citizens. With service learning integrated into the curriculum, students gain understanding of the world, engage in active volunteerism, and reflect carefully on their experience. Our program nurtures an appreciation for the many ways a person can serve the School and the greater community.

From Pre-K through 12th grade, our service learning program encourages students to be compassionate citizens.
