Why I Chose BC:

I chose to attend Berkeley Carroll because I could tell that the students here were well-rounded and independent. I could see how close the community was at the school and coming from a small middle school, it seemed like the perfect place for me. I remember touring the school and feeling welcomed with open arms.

My BC is…

curious. Especially this past year in American Studies, I found myself and my peers wanting to dig deep into our final research projects. During our American Studies Walking tours, I was able to see what my classmates chose to research and how passionate everyone was about what they learned. In and outside of the classroom, students here are encouraged to close-read everything.
