No, it is not necessary to submit an application before scheduling a tour of the school or attending one of our Open Houses. However, we do ask that families submit the application before scheduling a parent meeting and student meeting. Register to attend one of Shipley's Admissions Events.
The application for tuition assistance can be processed beginning in early October for the upcoming school year. This process should be completed simultaneously with the admissions process. Shipley will not offer admission to a family that is also applying for a tuition assistance grant until both processes are complete. Read more about Shipley's tuition assistance process.
