Virtual Admission Guide

Berwick Academy Aerial Campus Tour 2020

 





Welcome

Dear Prospective Students and Families,
 
Our students and teachers are diving enthusiastically into remote learning for an extended period, and the Berwick Academy Admission Team is eager to virtually ‘meet’ your family. With spring being one of our favorite times of year to share campus and the Berwick experience, we’ve created a variety of virtual opportunities for your family to learn about our community as you consider a new educational option for the 2020-2021 school year. At the heart of the Berwick 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


The Virtual Berwick in Action Experience

Evening Wind Down Q&A
With Jen Wing, Director of Enrollment
 
We recognize that, nationally and globally, our schedules as parents may be quite different than they were just weeks ago. These evening times are open to any family interested in learning more - kids, cats, and dogs are all welcome to make cameo appearances! During our Evening Wind Down Q&A Zoom meetings, we invite families with questions about Berwick to jump into Jen’s Zoom room and ask away. Jen looks forward to ‘virtually’ meeting families during this casual conversational time and will focus on each division during specific weekdays. The days and times each week are as follows:
 
Middle School (for families of students rising into Grades 5-8):
 
Lower School (for families of students rising into Pre-K–Grade 4):
 
Upper School (for families of students rising into Grades 9-12, and PG)
 
Head Tour Guide Panel Discussion*

On Thursday, May 21, from 7 - 8 p.m., join a panel of Berwick Academy’s best ambassadors - our current students. Berwick’s head student tour guides will give you their perspective and first-hand account on life on the Hilltop. 

*THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED.  PLEASE CHECK BACK IN THE NEAR FUTURE, OR CONTACT rcallahan@berwickacademy.org, FOR MORE INFORMATION.
