Founded in 1960, Berkeley Preparatory School is a Pre-K - Grade 12 co-educational independent, Episcopal day school located in Tampa, Florida. Berkeley educates the whole child by nurturing students’ intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical development so they may attain their highest potential. Our philosophy encompasses a balanced curriculum of academics and arts, clubs and activities, competitive sports and community service. An emphasis on academic excellence combined with a spirit of social responsibility engenders in students a newfound confidence and shared sense of purpose. Students exchange ideas, study virtues and explore ethics as they define their attitudes and values.
A diverse student population brings many cultures together, fostering the sharing of traditions in a safe forum. Through formal study of world religions, daily convocations, and the rich and open discussion among peers, students learn to respect their heritage along with the customs of their neighbors. Students are better prepared to embrace this diversity in our global world.
Our graduates are well-rounded individuals who have excelled in the lessons of character and learned the values of discipline, diligence, and integrity. They leave Berkeley with open minds to find the future awaits them with open doors.
