We recognize that an independent school education is a powerful investment in your child’s future, as well as a considerable financial commitment. The Shipley School remains committed to making a Shipley education accessible to students from a range of socio-economic backgrounds.

Over $8 million was awarded to approximately 37% of Shipley's student body for the 2023-2024 school year. All awards are based on demonstrated need and are revised on an annual basis. Families of students applying to any grade are welcome to apply for tuition assistance.

Join us for a tour of our campus and learn about all that Shipley has to offer your family! We welcome families for tours all year long. During the school year, Student Ambassadors lead individual tours in the Middle and Upper Schools. In the Lower School, small group tours are offered on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. You can email admit@tennojikyujin.com if you would like to request an alternative tour time for any division.
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.
