Since founding sisters Hannah, Katharine, and Elizabeth boldly pioneered women’s education in 1894, Shipley has had a positive impact on the world. And for 125 years, Shipley has inspired and prepared thousands of students to make meaningful change in their communities and beyond.

This year, we’re celebrating 125 years of changemakers at Shipley and we’d like you to help us by telling us how you or others in the Shipley community have made a difference, or how a Shipley teacher changed your life.​
