The Upper Division program is designed to provide students with the atmosphere and advantages of a small liberal arts college. With access to a wealth of opportunities, students receive an exceptionally well-rounded education.

Collectively more than 60 AP®, Honors and Advanced Topics courses are offered. Our three-year Global Scholars program provides a unique, internationally focused course of study. Berkeley students have traveled to England, Spain, Italy, Africa, Australia, China, Nepal, and many locations in Latin America.

Approximately 100 co-curricular activities and clubs including Berkeley Broadcast Network, Entrepreneur, Jolly Rogers (Spirit), Environmental and Rocketry clubs are available. A culture of student leadership provides a wide range of leadership opportunities – from student clubs and activities, to class representatives and Prefects, to peer tutors and campus guides.

Community service at Berkeley cultivates a spirit of social responsibility and is a graduation requirement; a minimum of 76 hours is required over the course of four years.

Our students receive highly individualized college counseling, starting at the end of their sophomore year. Our College Counseling motto is, “College is a match to be made, not a prize to be won.” One hundred percent of Berkeley graduates go to college. The Class of 2019 was accepted to a combined total of 177 colleges and universities in 34 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, England, France, and Scotland. The Class earned over $8 million in scholarships, and 86 percent of the class qualified for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program. The Class includes 19 National Merit honorees.

The Upper Division program is designed to provide students with the atmosphere and advantages of a small liberal arts college. Students are offered a choice of approximately 100 co-curricular activities and clubs, and they may be selected to join several nationally recognized academic honoraries, including the Cum Laude Society and National Honor Society. Berkeley is fortunate to have a transition counselor who offers support to new Upper Division students who may need academic support as they acclimate to curricular expectations.  A significant part of this support is guided study hall, a six-week support program that meets three times a week to cover such topics as organization, obtaining extra help when needed, habits of “good” studying and computer skills.  The transition counselor works in conjunction with the academic counselor to ensure that each student has the necessary skills to succeed.
