Note from Michael G. Turner: Inspiring Lives of Purpose

In 2016, Shipley embarked on a journey to shape the future of our institution, guided by the Vision 20/26 strategic plan. With a steadfast commitment to educational excellence at its core, the plan charted the School’s course in strengthening its work of preparing students to be and become their best selves, while inspiring them to make positive contributions to their communities and the world. 

Within this issue of Shipley Magazine, we highlight some of the work that has been done in recent years in support of the goals laid out in Vision 20/26. Our progress would be impressive in any light, but accomplishing what we have while navigating a pandemic is nothing short of remarkable. 

Our unwavering commitment to Shipley’s mission has fueled our progress. We are proud of the work done in recent years to make our program more global, to create more meaningful learning experiences for our students, to build on partnerships near and far, nurture the well-being of the individuals in our community, create opportunities for connection, and so much more.

We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate our students’ achievements, honor those who have contributed to their success, and envision the endless possibilities that lie ahead. Together, we will continue to forge a path towards educational excellence, pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a school, and dedicated to fostering a community—and a world—where everyone can thrive.

—Michael G. Turner, Head of School
