2020 TBS Fund Campaign

Through these challenging months, The Berkeley School team has persevered to joyously guide our students through their learning, to support their social and emotional growth, and to keep their health and safety priority number one.

A school experience like this is not funded through tuition alone. Now, more than ever, a gift to TBS Fund is the most important contribution you can make to our school.
