Berkshire Country Day is an independent Pre-K – 9 school that intentionally balances a comprehensive, challenging curriculum with the culture and spirit of the Berkshires.

What does that mean?
It means that we bring a level of intentionality and creativity to the “typical” components of an independent school education in order to allow each individual to engage
in teaching, learning, and personal growth in a deeply personal way.
