Academics

Upper School | 9-12

The Upper School provides an enriching experience, where students earn independence, grow confidence, and reach the highest levels of achievement that lead to strong end results. In addition to a demanding curriculum, our opportunities in arts, athletics, and service provide our young adults with choices as to how they are going to contribute to the Berwick community and the world beyond. Our faculty challenge students to stretch themselves and justify their opinions. Our students find their way through the demanding program, and by senior year, are well prepared for the college process, the academic rigor of their college classes, and the range of exciting opportunities before them.
