Berwick Parent Community

The Berwick Parent Community (BPC) is our parent-governed organization, representing all Berwick families. Our objective is to support and enhance the education of our students through communication, connection, and fundraising.
In an effort to bring people together, we host coffee gatherings on campus and evening socials off campus; we bring outside speakers to the school in areas of interest to our community; and we sponsor an array of student activities and events including ice cream socials, coffeehouses, and off-campus trips. We support our faculty and staff through the BPC Grant Program, which provides items ranging from musical instruments and speakers, to robotics and innovative classroom technology.

The BPC funds all of its own programming through three major fundraising events during the year - the annual Golf Classic in the fall, the online auction in the winter, and the Community Benefit in the spring. All events are a great way for our community to come together in a fun setting, while also helping to raise significant funds for the School.

Athletic Boosters

The Berwick Academy Athletic Boosters (BPC Athletics) provide material and financial support for our athletic programs, teams and facilities. BPC Athletics is open to any member of the community.
During the course of the year, we organize the Bulldog Golf Classic in the fall and manage the Courtside Café in the Athletic Center during the winter as fundraisers. Additionally we sell athletic focused Berwick branded apparel throughout the year as a way to bind the community together, and raise additional funds.

Meetings are held in the Athletic Center. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend!
