DIVERSITY AT BERKELEY
Berkeley Preparatory School is committed to being an inclusive and diverse learning environment that encourages values that recognize we are all unique individuals who make positive contributions to the world. Guided by our identity as an independent Episcopal school and our core cultural norms where kindness and respect are placed in the highest regard, Berkeley represents a welcoming environment where people from all backgrounds will not only fit in but thrive.
