Learning By Discovery
Whether writing a poem, composing a piece for Orff instruments in music class, choreographing a dance with classmates, or creating abstract collages in the art studio, our young students joyfully express their creativity using a multitude of media
Engaging & Supportive Community
Our students start and end each day with the same core group – a homeroom community where they can share classroom successes and challenges, collaborate on projects, ask questions, and sometimes simply catch their breath and get started on homework
Our Spirit of Inquiry
Walk these halls and you will find something special – students investiga- ting, experimenting, performing, sharing insights and perspectives and asking questions – getting excited about complex differential equations to fine arts
The World is Your Classroom
Our international exchange programs, partnerships with high schools across the United States, international trips, and affiliations with leading universities create special opportunities for you to learn beyond our classrooms
Prepare to Succeed
By the time our students graduate, they have developed into writers, scientists, mathematicians, musicians, historians, artists, and athletes. Along the way they choose from well over a hundred course offerings, a dozen althletic teams, and a myriad of opportunites in clubs and after-school activities
Engage Your Curiosity
The universe is made up of questions – some fundamental, some monumental, and some that are really tough to answer. At Berkeley Carroll we tackle these big ideas head-on, wrestling with challenging concepts and their complex details every day

The entire school, over a thousand people, gathered for the Thanksgiving Assembly on November 26, 2013. After Bob Vitalo, Head of School, thanked the teachers, 4th grader Joseph Gordon addressed the group, mentioning that he was thankful for his older brother Caleb and for electricity. Eighth grade speaker Chloe Shane said she was thankful for, among other things, One Direction. The Upper School speaker, Rasheed Evelyn in the 11th grade, reflected that it takes time to master the art of public speaking -- perhaps, but he's well on his way. The alumni speaker, Sadjada Wilson '08, shared that she lost her fear of the unknown in 8th grade, the year she first came to Berkeley Carroll. The 3rd, 4th, Middle School, and Upper School choruses and choirs sang beautifully, bidding everyone Happy Thanksgiving from Berkeley Carroll.

Maxim Pinkovskiy '04 returned to Berkeley Carroll on November 25, 2013, to teach Lorne Swarthout's economics class. Maxim, himself a bright light, shared some of his research showing the world lit up at night. In almost real time, the lights provided a window into the world's economic development and discontinuities in economic activity. Maxim received his PhD in economics earlier this year from MIT. He is now an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. More about Maxim here.
