About Us


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.
