Through Berkshire's new Annual Scholarship Program, your contribution provides financial support for deserving students who could otherwise not afford it.

It's a giving opportunity of a lifetime with an impact that will endure forever.

How has Berkshire School changed your life?




Why this is needed

  • The Annual Scholarship Program is a new initiative created to help provide greater educational opportunities for Berkshire students. Your gift will be used exclusively to support today’s students.
  • Annual tuition is nearly $60,000. Increasing numbers of students cannot afford to attend Berkshire without the support of our scholarship program.
  • On average, Berkshire’s annual scholarship award per student is $40,800.
  • Only 10% of Berkshire’s financial aid budget is met through endowment, compared to an average 25% among our admissions cohort.
  • Berkshire received over 1,200 applicants last year and nearly 500 applied for financial aid. Of those, Berkshire was able to grant only 39 new awards.
