  • School uniform requirements

    Each division at Berkeley has their own policy on uniforms. The Lower and Middle Divisions require a daily uniform Monday through Thursday and a formal uniform on Friday. Upper Division follows a standard of dress code Monday through Thursday and requires a formal uniform on Friday. Contact your specific division office at (813) 885-1673 to inquire about specific dress code policies.
  • Berkeley’s dining options

    Berkeley partners with SAGE Dining Services to provide daily meals to our school community.  Students who take advantage of the Berkeley dining program are able to enjoy a wide selection of food in the beautiful Berkeley Café (Middle and Upper Divisions) and Lower Division Activity Center and the new dining hall in the Seivold Center for Early Childhood Education (Lower Division). Working with SAGE brings a wealth of experience providing the best dining options in an academic setting. Their team of registered dietitians continuously works with Berkeley’s food service manager and chefs to develop recipes that adhere to the highest nutritional standards. All students are automatically enrolled in the dining program at the beginning of the year and have the opportunity to opt out.

  • Transportation options

    Berkeley evaluates these relationships every year and selects carrier(s) which, in its judgment, best meet the needs of the school community. Berkeley is currently recommending Network Transportation Solutions. Please call the company directly if you wish to use them for transportation.* Main Contact: Dana Slaybe Office # 407-722-8283 Email: Reservations@networktransportationww.com
