As the oldest co-ed independent school in Los Angeles, Berkeley Hall offers a balanced traditional program of challenging academics, arts, and athletics, which provides a strong foundation for high school.
The school’s mission is “to develop active thinkers in a balanced learning environment that inspires children of diverse backgrounds to fulfill their unlimited, God-given potential.” Character education is an essential component in developing the whole student.
Our core values of compassion, honesty, respect, and responsibility are explored in all-school assemblies, in the classroom, and in the day-to-day interactions among members of our school community.
 Our 66-acre campus is situated amidst the natural beauty of the Santa Monica Mountains, minutes from the Westside and the San Fernando Valley.
It provides students with the ideal environment to reflect, grow, learn, and achieve success.
