“We are fortunate to work at an independent school like Berwick where we have more freedom to teach what we feel is important in the context of our lower school curriculum maps. This provides opportunities for children to practice empathy, to think about and develop their own character and integrity. When this is done successfully, true academic learning is more apt to occur. Great teaching encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning and their own actions.” (Roz Witherbee, Fourth Grade Classroom Teacher)
Berwick Academy is Maine's oldest, independent Pre-K through Post Graduate private school. We draw our students from Maine, seacoast New Hampshire, and north shore of Massachusetts. Our community is dynamic, offering challenging academics, competitive athletics, and creative arts programs. Members of the community operate within a context of caring and respect as we pursue our quest for "useful knowledge" as "one school with three divisions." Students and faculty are encouraged to expand their horizons by balancing academics with athletic, dramatic, and musical options.
