Congratulations! Welcome to Berwick Academy and our Lower School - where our youngest students are known, valued, and provided with ample opportunities to be curious and engaged learners.

As a mom of two active and curious children ages 5.5 and 2.5, I understand why your family is carefully considering your child’s next steps in these early and incredibly transformative years of school. Your thoughtful research, questions, and desire for your child’s natural curiosities to be valued and nurtured brought you to Berwick. Whether you’re still thinking about your options or you know you’ll be joining us this fall, we strongly encourage you to strengthen your family’s understanding of Berwick by contacting us with your questions and joining us for the below virtual revisit opportunities.
