Berkeley School

Berkeley is a major cultural center and is the home of the University of California Berkeley, one of the top universities in the world. As a vibrant college town, renowned for its unique charm and colorful mixture of people and lifestyles, Berkeley is an ideal location for international students. With San Francisco just a short, 20-minute train ride away, students take advantage of all this metropolitan city has to offer, while studying and living in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. Located in the Bay Area, Berkeley has long been a premier tourist destination due to the region's diverse landscape including beautiful forests, heavenly beaches, magnificent mountains and California's famous wine country.

The school is on Berkeley Square, just two blocks from University of California Berkeley. Our modern facilities include computer rooms with free internet access and a library with self-access study materials.
