By design, every student makes an impact at Berkshire. No student is anonymous. Everyone knows everyone—from faculty and staff to new students and graduating seniors.
Our enrollment of 400 students is a sweet spot for Berkshire’s model and culture, allowing us to cultivate an exceptionally affirming and close-knit residential community. From the foundation of being known well, our students build confidence, which enables them to strive, take risks, and reimagine their potential in all areas of their development.
Berkshire School is a co-ed boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12 and post-graduates. The 400-acre campus is located at the base of Mount Everett (2,624 ft.) in Sheffield, Massachusetts, in the heart of the Berkshire Hills, a popular tourist destination for world-renowned arts and culture, health and wellness retreats and spectacular nature, including the Appalachian Trail, which is a short hike from campus.
Approximately 2.5 hours from Boston and New York City and 1.5 hours from Albany and Hartford, Berkshire is centrally located and accessible to several highways and airports. Nearby Great Barrington, Mass. (named 2012 "Best Small Town in America" by Smithsonsian magazine), Lenox, Mass. and Salisbury, Conn., are frequent destinations for restaurants, shops and movie theaters.
