Virtual Admission Guide

 

Welcome

Dear Prospective Students and Families,
 
The Berwick Academy Admission Team is eager to get to know your family. To maintain the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, who have returned to campus for in-person learning, we will rely on our culture of innovation to provide a variety of virtual opportunities to share our campus and the Berwick experience. At the heart of that experience is our community of teachers, students, and their families, both past and present. We hope that through these virtual experiences, you will discover that our community has a tangible ‘heartbeat,’ in addition to a curriculum that challenges, supports, and inspires our Pre-K–Grade 12 community of learners each day.
 
The first step in your virtual visit experience is to provide us with your contact information so we can keep in touch and help you learn more about Berwick. Be sure to let us know your interests so we can connect you with the right people. In the meantime, you can connect directly with current staff and parents to learn about their experience through the Berwick Ambassador PeerPal dashboard.
Warm Regards,
 
Jen Wing
Director of Enrollment
