The Shipley School, which is Bryn Mawr's immediate neighbor on Yarrow Street, has initiated a policy to offer a tuition discount applicable to Bryn Mawr College faculty and staff. The discount will go into effect with the start of the 2016-217 academic year and is 15% off the applicable tuition for children enrolled in grades 1 through 12. This benefit is being offered to faculty and staff who have a full-time equivalent status of .5 or higher as of September 1 of the applicable year. Shipley will also waive the $50 application fee for eligible Bryn Mawr College employees.
The discount may be offset by other financial aid that is being provided to the student, and the discount does not apply to any non-tuition expenses, including after-school programs. While Shipley has expressed the intent to continue this tuition discount into future years, all decisions regarding the continuation of this policy are made by Shipley and not by the College.
The College is not endorsing The Shipley School in announcing this policy, nor does the College have any role or influence in The Shipley School's application process. Any questions regarding this policy and Shipley in general should be directed to Amy Clemons, Director of Enrollment at The Shipley School.
As a reminder, the Phebe Anna Thorne School (PAT) also has a discount program of its own that is available to all Bryn Mawr College employees. Any questions on the programs at PAT should be directed to Amanda Ulrich.
