Doesn't tuition cover everything?

Tuition only covers 85% of the actual cost of the Berwick experience for each child. This is not unusual for an independent school. Like most independent schools, the two major sources of income at Berwick are tuition and The Berwick Fund. The Berwick Fund enables Berwick Academy to provide an exceptional learning experience for each student. A strong Berwick Fund also helps keep tuition costs as low as possible.
Berwick Academy, situated on an 80-acre campus just over one hour north of Boston, serves 600 students, Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12, from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. Deeply committed to its mission of promoting virtue and useful knowledge, Berwick Academy empowers students to be creative and bold. Berwick strives to graduate alumni who shape their own learning, take risks, ask thoughtful questions, and come to understand and celebrate their authentic selves. Founded in 1791 and rooted in a tradition of college preparation, our culture of innovation prepares students for a complex and dynamic world.
