Academics

Common ground for the wide variety of activities that make up the rich and engaging curriculum at Berkeley is an uncompromising commitment across all grades to the highest standards of educational excellence.

The cornerstones of a Berkeley education are the core college-preparatory subjects of language and literature, mathematics, science, social studies and history, world languages, and the arts. International themes are common, broadening students’ global awareness. As individual interests emerge, we add more choice to the structure.

Berkeley offers a vigorous, well-balanced course load at every grade level. Each division's curriculum is focused on educating our young people in a manner consistent with our mission: To nurture students' intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and physical development so that they may attain their highest potential.
Founded in 1960, Berkeley is an independent Episcopal day school for boys and girls in Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. Combining academic excellence with a spirit of social responsibility, Berkeley develops well-rounded individuals seeking to make a positive difference in the world.
