In the Middle School, we believe it is paramount to provide our students with the necessary skills and utilities that will facilitate a successful transition into our Upper School. Please join us as various Middle School administrators, faculty and students discuss how the Middle School prepares our students for life in the Upper School.

Visit Shipley by individual appointment or attend one of our virtual events. 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.

We will be offering campus tours Monday through Thursday at 3:45 and 4:30 and on Saturdays at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, and 12:00.  To check for tour availability please log into your Shipley account and go to your checklist to access the tour calendar.  If you have not yet submitted an inquiry or started an application you can fill out an inquiry now.
