STUDENT LIFE SLIDESHOW
Berkshire is a close-knit community, where everyone knows everyone on campus and relationships are meaningful—this is what students cite most often as their favorite part of being at Berkshire. Students are invested in their relationship with each other and the adults in the community, and they work hard to build that community that is competitive and compassionate, confident and humble, purposeful and spontaneous. Students teach one another the value of working hard and deliberately and the role leadership plays in creating an outstanding academic and social environment.
Like all schools, Berkshire has deep-rooted traditions that help define the Berkshire experience, including Mountain Day, Winter Carnival and Community Dinner. But what is unique about Berkshire is that students do not simply uphold traditions and show up to events; instead, they build traditions and new programs, and as a result they are involved, invested and connected.
Numerous opportunities exist outside of the academic schedule, allowing for a balanced Berkshire experience with activities and events designed to bring the student body together. Activities have included talent shows, musical performances, trivia night and film festivals, just to name a few.
"We seek to develop global citizens who respect and are responsible for others, themselves, and the community. We encourage students to take risks, to step out of their comfort zone and to have fun."
Dean of Students and Assistant Head of School
