Brooklyn private independent school


Dear Friends,

Berkeley Carroll offers a robust, innovative academic program that provides exciting opportunities for our students to hone their critical thinking skills and creative capacities in a challenging but supportive environment. We teach our scholars to glean evidence, to test hypotheses, to draw conclusions, and to understand themselves not just as consumers of lessons but as co-creators of knowledge. In support of our students, from pre-K through graduation, our faculty are committed to professional learning and growth, which serve as a catalyst for constant improvement even as we celebrate our strengths. 
Every individual at Berkeley Carroll is called to contribute to an ethical community, both here at school and beyond our walls. Whether considering how best to be a good friend or combating racism and other forms of oppression, we ask ourselves, What is the right thing to do?–understanding that the right thing is not always the easiest thing. We value process in this regard and seek to build a thoughtful, reflective, and resilient community

Recognizing that each individual is part of the whole and that our school, our city, and our nation function within a global context, we provide opportunities for our students to glean knowledge as well as to fortify connections with BC peers, neighbors, and those in other parts of the nation and our world. 

In meeting our mission to develop critical, ethical, and global thinkers, we encourage our students to develop their individual voices and their sense of agency. We want our young scholars to be active, engaged learners, problem solvers, and collaborators. In our dynamic academic environment, every one of our students is seen and appreciated; the strong, positive bonds between teachers and students form the cornerstone of a Berkeley Carroll education–academically, socially, and emotionally.

Berkeley Carroll is truly a city school and, since we are located in one of the most exciting neighborhoods in New York City, we are able to take advantage of all that it offers. Our Brooklyn campus stretches across Park Slope and our modern facilities support the full range of our academic, artistic, and athletic endeavors. 

Equipped with the skills they learn at Berkeley Carroll, our students are well prepared for success in college and throughout their lives. All of us at Berkeley Carroll feel very fortunate to be a part of such a vibrant intellectual community that promotes love of learning and that celebrates the diverse perspectives and backgrounds of each of its members.
