Berkeley Academy's Leadership Team

Berkeley Academy is a privately-owned educational institution that consists of a Board of Directors (populated by friends, experts and education enthusiasts) that helps us ensure that we are listening to the needs of our school community and operation. Our approach to our administration is one that is holistic and community-based in nature, as we believe that our greatest shareholders are those who have entrusted us with their most precious assets: our parents.
