Grandparents

Welcome!


We proudly welcome grandparents as esteemed members of our Berkeley Buccaneer family! Grandparents hold a special place in our hearts at Berkeley Preparatory School. Together, we share an immense pride in the many accomplishments of your grandchildren, in and out of the classroom. Grandparents are formally welcomed to Berkeley each year on Grandparents' Day, but we hope to also connect with you at performances, athletic and other events throughout the academic year.

Support Berkeley

The ongoing support of many Berkeley grandparents is vital to the success of our school. Each year, grandparents participate generously in our annual giving program, The Berkeley Fund, or make major gifts with a lasting impact on our campus. Grandparents also support Berkeley through sponsorships at events throughout the year including our BUC BASH and online auction, the Berkeley Open golf tournament, and the Inshore Invasion fishing tournament. For more information, please reach out to the Office of Institutional Advancement at 813.885.1673 or advancement@berkeleyprep.org.
    • The 2021-22 Berkeley Fund is led by Grandparent Chair Cynthia Heath, grandparent to Piper Dietz ’32
