Berwick Academy

31 Academy St, South Berwick, ME 03908

The oldest school in Maine, BA holds a charter as an institution of higher learning, signed by Gov. John Hancock when Maine was a possession of Massachusetts. Albert L. Kerr, who assumed direction in 1957, established a college preparatory program that now offers a competitively rigorous curriculum, with training in fundamental academic skills, as well as honors and Advanced Placement courses. After 17 years as a combined boarding and day school, the academy reverted to country day status in 1976 and now predominantly enrolls students from southern Maine and New Hampshire. Berwick encourages boys and girls to participate in its daily program of sports and activities. A common period on Tuesdays enables upper schoolers to work with advisors, take part in wellness pursuits, organize class activities or attend performances. Each student in grades 7-12 purchases a laptop computer for classroom use.
