Being a Bertschi Kid

When children attend Bertschi, they become part of a life-long community of individuals who understand the importance of compassion, confidence and creativity in living a balanced and active, community-centered existence. Bertschi kids realize life is a continual discovery process and that learning and growing never stop.

Bertschi Kids Speak for Themselves:

"Here, everybody can shine." –Sofia, Bertschi Alumna

"I actually don't think about sharing my ideas, I just do."
- Latham, Bertschi Alumnus

"My teachers have encouraged me to write and apply the power of my creative mind."
- Maxwell, Bertschi Alumnus

"Bertschi got me so excited to learn, and when you're excited about something you'll do everything you can to learn about it."
- Shannon, Bertschi Alumna

"As I prepare to go to middle school I am not afraid to write essays, do math, spelling, and I am certainly not afraid to be wrong."
- Megan, Bertschi Alumna

"The most important thing I ever learned in drama is that I have enough courage to speak in front of many people."
- Cameron, Bertschi Alumnus

Compassionate. Confident. Creative.

A Cherished Life-Long Connection

At Bertschi, children discover and explore their unique gifts and are encouraged to share these gifts and their opinions with their community and the world. Upon graduation, they’re self-assured and skilled in their work, broad-minded in their thinking, and prepared academically and socially for the challenges of middle school.
