ABOUT: The history of Berwick Academy dates back to 1791, when the citizens of Berwick, York, Kittery, Rollinsford, Portsmouth, and Wells raised 500 pounds to educate the local youth. Incorporated by a charter signed by Governor John Hancock for the purpose of “promoting true piety and virtue and useful knowledge among the rising generation,” Berwick Academy was established to teach languages, liberal arts, and sciences. Today, Berwick educates students through a purposeful blend of academics, arts, and athletics. The curriculum is traditional in its roots yet innovative in its approach, fostering self-discipline, hard work, and healthy skill sets. Students are encouraged to take risks, find their voice, and tap into the energy of campus life and community activities.
