In 2009, after careful planning by the Board of Trustees, Shipley embarked upon Phase I of The Campaign for Shipley (Foundations for Success), as a first step toward addressing the School’s needs.
Through the generous support of Trustees and a small cohort of visionary donors, more than $22 million was contributed. Shipley’s endowment has grown by more than $6 million to support Financial Aid, Professional Development for Faculty, Curriculum Development, and Technology advancements including the introduction of a 1-to-1 computing program. We have also completed the following facilities projects:
Purchase and razing of Thornbrook Manor apartment building
New campus entrance at Wyndon & North Merion Avenues
88-space parking garage and physical plant facility
Six (6) tennis courts
Two (2) multi-sport regulation-size artificial turf fields
The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
