Arts At Berwick

Experience Creativity

The Visual & Performing Arts program at Berwick Academy comprises a variety of meaningful experiences and opportunities to create, express, perform, and exhibit.
All students are encouraged to participate in the arts because this knowledge is beneficial to the whole child and requires taking healthy risks. Their hard work culminates in music recitals and art exhibitions for family and friends to enjoy on campus, as well as at local, state, and national levels to enhance the personal experience and bring an appreciation for national recognition of the Berwick community.

Discover Your Talents

Berwick artists take risks and stretch themselves by exploring a new artistic medium, learning to play a new instrument, or performing on stage for the first time. Faculty and students collaborate to create an environment that fosters the confidence to perform and exhibit, while also establishing a supportive network to navigate individual growth.
