    Tuition Assistance @Shipley - November 10

    We recognize that an independent school education is a powerful investment in your child’s future as well as a considerable financial commitment. The Shipley School remains committed to making a Shipley education accessible to students from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. Over $7.6 million was awarded to approximately 37% of Shipley's student body for the 2021-2022 school year. This financial support comes from Shipley’s endowment, gifts to the school, and tuition. All awards are based on demonstrated need and are revised on an annual basis, and families of students applying to any grade are welcome to apply for tuition assistance. Please join us for a virtual event as Nan Bussey, Shipley’s Director of Tuition Assistance, outlines our process and answers your questions regarding tuition assistance.
