Berkeley Carroll is an independent, college preparatory day school providing coeducational programs for children in prekindergarten through grade 12. Officially chartered by New York state in 1886, Berkeley Carroll is one of the oldest independent schools in New York City.

Located in one of the preeminent neighborhoods of New York, the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, Berkeley Carroll shares its neighborhood with writers, artists, film makers, lawyers, and doctors as well as with the rich cultural heritage provided by the neighboring Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and Prospect Park. In many respects, Park Slope is as much a part of the Berkeley Carroll School as are its award-winning buildings and facilities.

Our buildings feature state-of-the-art libraries, laboratories, and studios. The school’s newly renovated Performance Space rivals that of many Broadway theaters and our 75-foot pool is located in the school’s beautifully appointed athletic center. The pool is one of only a handful in the New York city area.

A culturally diverse body of approximately 110 full time teachers comprise the Berkeley Carroll faculty, 80 percent of whom have master’s degrees or higher. The student/faculty ratio is 1:7. Throughout the school our exceptional teachers challenge, engage, and connect with our students while instilling and nurturing a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime.

Berkeley Carroll’s 800 students come from all over Brooklyn, the five boroughs of New York City, and Long Island.
