Visiting Berwick’s Upper School

As a prospective student, the best way to experience Berwick’s Upper School is by visiting campus and meeting your future peers and teachers.

Prospective Students for Grades 9-Postgraduate

Visiting Our Campus
When you visit our campus, you can begin to imagine yourself in our classrooms, on the stage, in the Fabrication Studio, on the turf field, in our art studios, working with a mentor on an Innovation Pursuit, or hanging out with your friends in the Fogg Pit. Here, we believe that it’s cool to be smart, cool to try, and cool to be your authentic self. Students and their parents and/or guardians are encouraged to tour campus and meet with members of the Berwick Admission Office. One-on-one interviews with prospective students, their families, and an Admission Officer are a required part of the application process. We encourage multiple visits to campus, ensuring that your family gets to know Berwick in many ways is important to us.

What’s the application process to the Upper School?
Applications for admission to the 2020-2021 school year are due on January 15, 2020; students with complete applications by our initial deadline will receive a March 10 admission decision from our admission office. After January 15, applicants are considered on a rolling basis dependent upon space, though we encourage you to connect with us at any time during the school year to talk about entry for the fall of 2020. 

Once you’re ready to apply, you’ll find an admission checklist within your myBerwick account. This will help you track what you’ll need to submit, and the status of your application. On your checklist, you will find the following requirements:
  • Application Form
  • Tour & Interview
  • Teacher Recommendations
  • Transcripts  
  • Sign up to take the SSAT
Upper School applicants can also use the Standard Application Online (SAO) rather than the myBerwick admission application.

We’ll stay in touch!
During your personalized admission process, we’ll look forward to getting to know you!  We’ll be in touch with you throughout the process to ensure you understand all of the steps and to continue to grow your understanding of Berwick Academy. We welcome and encourage your questions – call us, email us, or stop by. We look forward to working with you!
