Shipley School, The

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.

Points of Pride: Strong relationships between students and faculty are at the heart of everything we do. Because our teachers know our students as learners and as people, they develop the confidence to explore; we require creativity in all (there are no easy or reflexive answers); which leads to deeply rooted learning. We call our unique approach The Shipley Method.
