Why is The Berwick Fund necessary?

Berwick Academy is an independent school, therefore, it does not receive any state or federal funding. The School relies entirely on tuition dollars, draw from the School’s endowment, and charitable donations from the community to educate our students and provide the incredible faculty and programs that make Berwick so great. Additionally, and true to most independent schools, tuition does not cover entire cost of educating our students, hence the need for additional philanthropic support. 

Serving Maine, The Seacoast of New Hampshire, and the North Shore of Massachusetts

Berwick Academy is Maine's oldest, independent Pre-K through Post Graduate private school. Our community is dynamic, offering challenging academics, competitive athletics, and creative arts programs. Members of the community operate within a context of caring and respect as we pursue our quest for "useful knowledge" as "one school with three divisions." Students and faculty are encouraged to expand their horizons by balancing academics with athletic, dramatic, and musical options.
