Why I Chose BC

The day that my parents and I went on our tour of the school, I was absolutely amazed by how well-connected the entire community is. During the time that we walked around and met tons of friendly faces, there was this overwhelming warm and welcome feeling within me that I definitely did not feel when I toured other schools. When the tour was over, I immediately knew that I had fallen in love with Berkeley Carroll and crossed my fingers that I would get in. I hope that many more students and their families will also be able to say that this school is their second home.

My BC is...

open-armed. I have always felt like I can be my true self when I'm inside the BC community. No matter what class or what activity I participate in, my peers and teachers are supportive and we are all accepting of one another. Over the past few years, I have made multiple friends spanning across various grades and have realized that the community is not exclusive by friend groups nor age. Instead, we all come together and help each other in times of need in the course of collectively building our community to be stronger.
