Founded in 1979, the mission of the SCCA is to:
Shipley’s Choice is ideally located in Anne Arundel (AA) County, MD; about 10 miles north of Annapolis, MD, the sailing boat capital of the United States and the seat of Maryland state government. Annapolis is also home to the United States Naval Academy and St. John’s College, and the city is a historic city preserving its naval heritage and colonial architecture homes. The land on which the Shipley's Choice was established was originally acquired by Adam Shipley, who came to Anne Arundel County in 1668. On March 30, 1681, he patented 200 acres on the south side of the Severn River.
The community of Shipley’s Choice is on the western edge of Severna Park, MD, where the public school district includes the Shipley’s Choice Elementary School, number 1 in the AA County & 10/10 by Great Schools; Severna Park Middle School, and the Severna Park High School. Shipley’s Choice is just 1½ miles from Exit 10 of Interstate 97, 17 miles from Baltimore, 34 miles from Washington, D.C., and 8 miles from the Thurgood Marshall Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport. Centrally located, the neighborhood has great access to several major interstates, as well BWI Airport, and the AMTRAK train station (great access to both DC via the MARC and Baltimore via the light rail).
The Shipley’s Choice community features a walk-able location for the Shipley’s Choice Elementary School and the privately managed, Shipley’s Choice Swim & Tennis Club, facilities of a club house, two swimming pools, a children’s pool, and four tennis courts.
Residents of SCCA homes in Shipley’s Choice have homes that are primarily two story with two car garages on well treed lots of a ¼ acre or more. AA County is responsible for snow removal from the streets, street repairs, and trash removal, including recycling trash and greens removal at the curb from containers. Residents are professionals usually working within the Washington-Baltimore-Annapolis triangle, and some include Columbia, MD and the Fort Meade, MD area for their employment.
