Mission Statement

A passion for learning is at the heart of Berkeley Carroll. Our school is an intellectual, creative, and equitable community where devoted teachers challenge and engage talented students. Our demanding curriculum and vibrant civic life prepare our diverse graduates for success in college and for the greater endeavor—a life of critical, ethical, and global thinking.

About Us

Berkeley Carroll is a vibrant, independent, preK through 12th grade college prep school where students develop their critical, ethical and global thinking in and out of the classroom.

Walk through our halls and you’ll see classes where teachers engage and challenge students and intellectual curiosity is encouraged, with students investigating, performing, sharing insights and perspectives, asking questions, and solving real-world problems.

After they graduate, our students go on to thrive at the world’s most selective and admired colleges and universities.

Centrally located in Park Slope, Brooklyn, our school attracts families from all parts of New York City and New Jersey and provides free bus service for students.

Berkeley Carroll fosters a culture where students:

  • strive for academic excellence and enrich their learning with opportunities to excel in the creative arts and athletics.
  • discover their passions, develop their inner voices and begin to make sense of their place in the world.
  • express and take a personal responsibility for shaping a just and peaceful world.

An emphasis on respect and caring for individuals makes our diverse, inclusive community an extraordinarily strong one.

We are deeply committed to developing ethical and critical thinkers who are exceptionally prepared to lead and succeed in an increasingly complex and changing world.
