Skills as the goal with content serving as the vehicle

Acquiring skills through hands-on learning, using content as the vehicle, gives students the lasting tools they need to thrive during their time at Berwick, after graduation, and in life. Our Pinnacle courses in the Upper School focus on depth over breadth, and encourage students to confront ideas that are authentic, stretch their thinking, and go deeper in their learning.
