Reflections about Shipley:
I walked in at the age of four and I realized that I would stand out more than any other student. At the age of 18, now I see from all these years that I am no different than my peers. I will cherish my years at Shipley because I am prepared to engage with people from all walks of life.
I am grateful for the education that I received over a span of 14 years. My 14 years at Shipley cannot compare to the 4-6 years at Saint Joseph's that I will walk into in August. Nonetheless, Shipley molded me and I cannot believe it took me this long to figure it out. Shipley gave me an extensive education. I will remember every part of Shipley from 2007 to 2021. The other best part of completing a 14-year journey is knowing I am a second-generation Gravely who graduated from 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.
