Welcome to Berkshire Academics
Berkshire's academic program contains an exceptional core curriculum, with AP offerings in all six academic departments. The core is surrounded by a number of unique offerings that supplement and enhance our students' experience. Our Advanced Math/Science and Humanities offerings provide students high-level research opportunities with scholars from around the country. Our Aviation Science class allows some students to earn their private pilot's license. These are but two of the many unique opportunities available for every Berkshire student.
A Berkshire education provides students with the tools necessary to excel in college. More, it's designed with an intentional eye to the skills that will help our students ultimately become successful adults. This fits with the core of Berkshire's motto, Learning, not just for school, but for life. In all classes, and in all disciplines, our talented faculty strive to help our students master critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication -- all skills that will help them not only become productive members of our close-knit community, but also meaningful contributors to the extended, global community which will greet them after they leave us.
I hope that you will spend some time navigating our pages and exploring links to some of the experiences and opportunities that benefit Berkshire students, past, present and future. Even better, come and see for yourself what we have to offer.
