For more than 50 years, Berkeley Preparatory School has thrived as a result of the generosity and support of thousands of donors. This involvement helped the school develop into the respected and beloved educational institution that it is today. Berkeley is an independent school and does not receive financial support of local or federal tax dollars. In fact, Berkeley is entirely dependent on revenue from tuition and the generosity of our current and past parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and community friends in private gifts. The Office of Institutional Advancement is dedicated to raising funds to ensure that Berkeley maintains the integrity of its academic environment. Families choose Berkeley for their children because it is where leadership, vision, integrity and virtue thrive. It is where community service, the love of learning and self-confidence are instilled in our children. It will be the ongoing generosity and participation of alumni, current and past families, faculty and community friends that will ensure that the standards of academic excellence set forth in our mission remains for the generations to follow.
