Doesn't tuition cover everything?

Tuition only covers 87% 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 Annual Fund. The Annual Fund enables Berwick Academy to provide an exceptional learning experience for each student. A strong Annual Fund also helps keep tuition costs as low as possible.

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.
