Shipley's Third Annual Conference
Join us for The Shipley School’s third annual conference as we continue to push the boundaries around what it means to help students and colleagues thrive. Over the past few years, Shipley has been committed to re-envisioning education in a way that can lead to greater fulfillment and well-being.
This year, we’ll be taking the next step by shifting the focus to a more holistic view on human flourishing—one that continues to emphasize individual well-being, but also integrates that focus with a broader prioritization of communal flourishing, as well as individual and collective accomplishment.
Come learn from global experts as we take deep dives into the intersection between DEI, flourishing, and pedagogy by focusing on three themes that are often undervalued in classrooms: identity, belonging, and flow.Details and Registration >>>

Spotlight on DEI in Middle School Classrooms
In the Middle School, students focus on DEI work at all levels and in every subject area. From rewriting textbook problems to be more inclusive in math, to examining the role and ramifications of institutionalized racism, White privilege, and allyship in their study of To Kill a Mockingbird in English, our Middle School students are engaged in meaningful DEI-focused learning experiences.
Since founding sisters Hannah, Katharine, and Elizabeth boldly pioneered women’s education in 1894, Shipley has had a positive impact on the world. And for 125 years, Shipley has inspired and prepared thousands of students to make meaningful change in their communities and beyond.
“Shipley was life-changing for me. It opened up my world," says alumnus Hakiem Coles ’07. His belief in the power of education to positively impact the lives of other black students inspired him to join Shipley's Black Alumni Association and establish a named endowed fund, the Black Alumni Association Fund, to support the curricular and cultural needs of Shipley’s Black students and teachers.
