Dedicated in January 09, the Stewart Athletic Center, also known as 'The Jack,' is a 117,000-square-foot multi-purpose athletic facility with two hockey rinks (one converts to tennis courts), training facilities, a fitness center and locker rooms for all seasons.
Completed in the summer of 2012, the Bellas/Dixon Math and Science Center is a stunning 48,000-square-foot facility featuring six math classrooms, eight science classroom labs, a 100-seat teaching auditorium, faculty offices, and an Advanced Math/Science Research lab with state-of-the-art equipment.
Math students at Berkshire recently built a suspension bridge using the skills they learned in class, and with help of the School's 3D printers.
Berkshire's rural setting allows students and faculty to explore academic material in a unique way. Here students are led in the School's outdoor classroom.
Berkshire takes sustainability seriously. An eight-acre solar field – the largest solar installation in the state of Massachusetts –began generating up to forty percent of the School’s electricity in December of 2011 and serve as a lab for its Sustainability program.
The Gallery, which opened in the fall of 2013, is a modern and bright exhibition space located in the new Fine Arts Center. With Berkshire's commitment to artistic excellence, the gallery's exhibitions reflect a wide range of artwork representing all fields of study offered at Berkshire. Annual exhibits showcase artwork from students, alumni and friends of Berkshire.
Astronomy students are able to explore the night sky in Dixon Observatory, using its powerful telescope to observe globular clusters, planetary nebulae, galaxies, and the sun. Recently, Berkshire also acquired four portable telescopes, which are excellent for learning to navigate the night sky and observe objects like planets, binary stars, and the moon.
Boarding school and day students are involved in all aspects of school life, including leadership opportunities, student activities, clubs, and athletics. We encourage students to take risks, to step out of their comfort zone and to have fun.
