Health & Nutrition
Designated space for rest and recovery from concussions and/or migraines allows students to recover in a supportive and supervised environment. In addition to existing coursework on nutrition in all three divisions, the school regularly develops age-appropriate programming that engages and informs the community about up to date research on healthy eating. Additionally, the learning lab includes a test kitchen, allowing students to engage in meaningful, hands-on skills through our nutrition curriculum, guiding their interest in healthy food preparation.
Health & Wellness Education
Berwick Academy’s Health & Wellness programming spans grades Pre-K-12 and focuses on health topics most pertinent to each grade level. Within the Lower School, Wellness is coupled with both the Physical Education Program and Social Emotional Learning Program (SEL) so that students begin to understand the connection between the mind and body. Middle School students experience Health & Wellness classes twice a week, while incoming Grade 9 students participate in an interactive health education trimester class that focuses on relevant adolescent health issues as well as academic skill building.
