Open Houses/Events

Choosing a private education for your child is a very important decision and sometimes can present challenges.  There are many aspects to consider.  Touring our campus is an important part of the decision making process.  As you experience the daily life going on around you, you will get a sense of what Berkwood Hedge School is all about.  While you are here, you will meet other parents and you will experience the Berkwood Hedge School community and get a sense of whether this is the right place for your child and your family.

Open House complements our school day tours. We recommend you go on a school tour in addition to attending the Open House.
