Fall Parents' Weekend

OCTOBER 18-20, 2018

Join us under the Mountain to reunite with your child(ren), for a glimpse into life at Berkshire. During Fall Parents' Weekend, parents are invited to engage in our academic programs and community life, visit classes, climb the Mountain, attend our performing arts concert, and take in a full slate of home athletic contests.

Integral to the weekend is the scheduled parent/advisor conferences to review and discuss your child’s overall progress. As you know, advisors play a pivotal role in the lives of our students at Berkshire, and your child’s advisor looks forward to updating you on all aspects of life at School.
