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 boarding community, but also meaningful contributors to the extended, global community which will greet them after they leave us.
Berkshire offers the state-of-the-art facilities and an expansive selection of classes and programs commonly found at large schools, with the small class sizes and close faculty relationships typical of small schools, providing a balanced academic experience second to none. After years of expansion and upgrades, Berkshire's academic offerings, services and facilities are among the best in the country—and are continually growing to meet the needs of the school's high-caliber students.
