Welcome to the Berkeley Academy! The Berkeley Academy is a FREE, signature service program offered by Berkeley Preparatory School aimed at helping highly motivated, low-income students in our Tampa Bay community reach their unique potential and achieve their dream of going to college. The Berkeley Academy is committed to ensuring that all of its students have the preparation, skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college and beyond. This is accomplished through a six-year program which starts the summer before a student’s seventh grade year and ends upon completion of high school. Selected students are mentored and guided over the course of six years on weekends and during summer breaks so that the learning cycle never ends.
