Berwick has helped me so much with not only college placement, but athletics, music, and overall academic advancement as well. I've learned so much while on the Hilltop, and I really think the school looks less on what you can do for it than what it can do for you. We've had some amazing college acceptances this year to the top schools in the nation and Berwick truly embraces all aspects of community building, broadening perspectives, creating tolerance and acceptance, and personal development. I would tell anyone looking at New England prep schools to apply to Berwick Academy!

As a senior, I can tell you that my experience in the Berwick Academy Upper School was wonderful. I've yet to have had a teacher that didn't go beyond the boundaries to help a student. I feel beyond prepared for college. And I really do believe that I wouldn't be the person I am today without the opportunities and healthy atmosphere this school has provided for me to grow. Thanks BA!
Berwick Academy is a place to find your feet and learn more about yourself and others. The sports programs were a wonderful way to connect not only with your fellow peers of all different grades but also the faculty as they were the coaches, it brought a lot of people together and created friendships that I know still stand today. My hope for the future is that the school does become more diverse and I know they are currently on the path to achieving that which is hopeful for me to see. There are communities in every part of campus, with something to fill the interest of everyone, no one is left out or behind. Having spent four years there I wouldn't have done it any other way, the school let me grow into the person I am today and prepared not only myself but my fellow alumni to take on college in many ways. Berwick Academy is the perfect stepping stone to finding your independence while also being immersed in various opportunities one may not have had before.
