Be rwick Academy Investing in Excellence

RGI


Berwick Academy Mission virtue and useful knowledge among the

Berwick Academy, founded in 1791, is a Pre-kindergarten through Post-graduate college-preparatory

rising generations. As one school with three divisions, Berwick develops balanced leadday school dedicated to promoting

ers through personal relationships that foster confidence and achievement. By engaging in a program distinguished by academic challenge, creative expression and performance, innovative technology, ethical sportsmanship, wellness, and a commitment to the common good, Berwick graduates become resilient citizens by living our core values of balance, engagement, excellence, and integrity.


[Welcome Letter Outline]

We have a transformational, capitally efficient plan that will make dramatic improvement at Berwick: Over the past two years, we have developed a plan that will allow Berwick to become: • More financially sustainable • More accessible to families from a variety of financial circumstances • Better positioned to support dedicated teachers • More attractive to potential applicants

academics

“The at Berwick Academy have made me a more refined person who can structure and organize complex ideas, and with those ideas realize more about my world. Because of this, I am a confident, curious person who is always seeking new knowledge, and that knowledge makes a smarter, happier world.” - Eric Rawn ‘16


Investing in Our Most Important Asset The Case for Faculty Compensation Berwick Academy’s greatest strength is the relationships forged between students and teachers, and the vast majority of our teachers are exceptional. However, faculty demographics suggest that significant numbers of teachers will retire in the next ten years. In the past, we have relied on tuition remission and geography to drive hiring success in the local area. Going forward, these tools will not be sufficient to elevate the level of our faculty on a national level. Consequently, we will improve salary levels and benefit programs to the mean levels of our benchmark group. Competitive salary and benefits will ensure our ability to attract and retain the best talent from across the country for our students. Continued emphasis on evaluations, professional development, and making diversity a priority in hiring will complement our increased level of investment in faculty compensation.

“The at Berwick has had an amazing impact on my experience during my three years here. My art teacher, Mrs. Wildnauer, in particular, has been a wonderful mentor and teacher, and I value my relationship with her immensely. This relationship with Mrs. Wildnauer along with my other teachers, has been an incredibly positive influence on my academic, social, and artistic life here at BA.” - Abby Scanlon ‘12


Investing in the Best and Brightest The Case for Financial Aid Each year, over $2.6 million dollars out of our $13.5 million operating budget goes towards supporting the best students in the Seacoast regardless of their ability to pay tuition. Increasing support for financial aid will also be essential in meeting the various student diversity goals we have as well. The budget for this is financed primarily from unrestricted funds and tuition discounting. Financial aid is a vital tool for us to be able to maintain and improve the quality of our student body.

financial aid

“Without , I would not have been able to attend Berwick and receive such a high quality education. Today, this generosity continues to inspire me as I advocate for the educational rights of students with disabilities and happily represent pro bono clients.� - Lillian Glidden Wong ‘01


Investing in Our Facility The Case for Campus Enhancements The campus is one of our greatest assets. While it presently serves our faculty and student body well, a number of improvements will be required and undertaken over the next ten years. We will construct a modern Performing Arts Center that will accommodate a desired high school enrollment of 325-375 and meet the needs of our sophisticated Arts program. When the Upper School does grow, we will renovate the inside of Fogg and/or re-purpose some of our existing spaces across campus. We know that the needs of our Office of Advancement will continue to expand, and we will renovate Oakes House to address Advancement space requirements and/or the future of our employee day care. Finally, the curb appeal of our beautiful campus trails our competitors, and we want to build our image as a source of pride to the local community. Therefore, we will complete the master landscaping plan that has been put in place for the major entrances of the school. The impact of these changes cannot be overstated from an enrollment and community morale perspective.
