The Upper School provides a rigorous academic experience coupled with a robust extracurricular program that prepares students for higher education beyond Berwick. Berwick high schoolers learn independence through confidence, engaging with a dynamic faculty that challenges them to be their best selves. With our focus on balance while offering a variety of artistic and athletic options, Berwick students find life lessons in every corner of our campus, learning as much outside the classroom wa lls as they do inside.  A Berwick graduate is well-rounded, well-spoken, and kind.  How we treat one another matters as much as success in the classroom, on stage, and on our playing fields. 
Students are at the center of all curricular and extracurricular activities. Inside the classrooms, students can direct their learning, from the ability to choose from a wide array of electives to which book to study in a certain class. Outside the classroom, students lead assemblies, form clubs, and many choose to complete an Innovation Pursuit to dive deeper into a particular passion.
