#18: Shipley's Concussion Research Partnership with CHOP

In 2014, Shipley banned the heading of soccer balls for Middle School students, becoming one of the first schools in the United States to make such a commitment to concussion prevention and safety. Now, Shipley has partnered with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to find objective ways to diagnose and measure concussions and prevent long-term effects through student-athlete participation and a research lab set up in Shipley Athletic Director Mark Duncan's office. Concussion prevention is just one of the ways that Shipley maintains a focus on student wellbeing. Learn more about Concussion Prevention at Shipley.
The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
