Best Thing About Shipley: “When I think of Shipley, I think of the people who have impacted me throughout my time here. I think of the friends I have made, the relationships with my teachers and coaches, and everyone who has helped to support me over the last 10 years. I am forever grateful for the connections I have made that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”

One Piece of Advice for New Students: “One piece of advice I would share with new students is to not focus so much on the grade you receive in a class. Shipley is a place designed to push you outside of your comfort zone. What I have learned during my past four years in high school is that it is far more beneficial to struggle in a class and learn from the experience than to not challenge yourself.”


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.
