Getting Started

Thank you for your interest in Bertschi School. We’re here to help you every step of the way, from our Open House to school tours, through any questions about whether Bertschi School is the right fit for your child.

Who are we looking for?

  • Our community of families, staff and teachers value integrity, inclusiveness, diversity and respect. All our new students bring their unique perspectives and talents to our community.   


  • Bertschi kids engage in new experiences and make connections between new ideas and the things they know. They are eager to explore their world and to know each other.  


  • Not everything is perfect, and Bertschi kids can put their experiences in perspective, get back up, and trust themselves to try what's next.

  3. After we receive your completed application, we'll be in touch to schedule a school visit for your child. Campus visits begin in late-January and finish up in mid-March.
  4. Follow up with the appropriate individuals at your child’s current school to share information about your child: These must be on file before your child's school visit, but do not need to be turned in by January 12.  If you delegate these forms online, you DO NOT need to submit them via paper.
