Description

Berwick Academy, founded in 1791, is dedicated to promoting virtue and useful knowledge among the rising generations. Berwick is as exciting as it is challenging, and as playful as it is hard working; a place where discovery is applauded and students are more than classmates – they’re friends. Walk across the campus and you’ll instantly feel it – this is more than a school; it is the convergence of three divisions, each with its own personality, but together forming a community that is uniquely Berwick. Since its inception in 1791, Berwick has educated students through a purposeful blend of academics, arts, and athletics. The curriculum is traditional in its roots yet innovative in approach, fostering self-discipline, hard work, and healthy skill sets. Students here are encouraged to take risks, find their voice, and tap into the energy of campus life and community activities.

Unique Characteristics

Pathways Program: The Berwick Academy Pathways program empowers students to dive deeper into curricular & extracurricular related pursuits in Arts, Global Citizenship, and STEAM. Pinnacle Program: As the most rigorous academic classes in each discipline, Pinnacle courses focus on depth over breadth and encourage students to confront ideas and problems that are authentic, stretch their thinking, and foster an appreciation of deep knowledge. A hallmark of Pinnacle courses are varied assessments which allow students to demonstrate their acquisition of skills, content mastery, and depth of inquiry, while providing context for their future work as young scientists, writers, artists, performers, historians, mathematicians, and engineers.
