    Thursday Tour - May 7 (Format To Be Determined)

    A great time to visit campus during the school day and learn more about our program. Tours are given in each division and will start at 10:00 am (registration 9:45 am). Please note the format for the Thursday Tour is to be determined.

    Coming to the event? 
    Lower School: 1030 Wyndon Avenue, Bryn Mawr. When you arrive, please park in a visitor parking spot in our parking lot and come to the lobby of the Lower School. Look for the tall flagpole to mark the main entrance.

Visit Shipley by individual appointment or attend one of our Thursday Tours to see how strong relationships between students and faculty are at the heart of who we are. We believe these relationships allow us to get to know students as both learners and people, leading to deeply rooted learning and personal success in and out of the classroom.
