Classes to be held at Shepherd University's Martinsburg Center

Berkeley STEM Academy is proud to announce we have reached an agreement with Shepherd University to conduct classes at Shepherd's state-of-the-art Martinsburg Center campus.  Berkeley STEM Academy students will enjoy brand new facilities with comfortable accommodations and the latest in classroom technology.


Welcome to Berkeley STEM Academy!

Berkeley STEM Academy is an all-new, private, non-profit, independent high school serving students in grades 9 through 12 from Martinsburg, Berkeley County, and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia as well as neighboring communities in Maryland and Virginia. Berkeley STEM Academy is being created to answer the increasingly urgent cries from government, business, and industry to prepare more young men and women for STEM-related professions. At Berkeley STEM Academy we prepare students for academic success in college and beyond through a comprehensive, integrated, immersive technology-enhanced curriculum focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Apply Now for 2016-2017 Enrollment

Apply now for your child to join our brand new honors-level academy. Students who enroll this year will become part of a very close-knit group of up to 60 students in grades 9 and 10 who share the common interest of academic success in high school and beyond. Led by a team of highly qualified, dedicated, experienced, and caring career-professional educators, students will have daily opportunities to experience hands-on, authentic, relevant learning like never before. The small class sizes and safe, inviting, collegial atmosphere at Berkeley STEM Academy will enable every student to explore his or her individual interests while achieving levels of academic success beyond the realm of more traditional schools.

Our independent education model is very attractive to teachers as well. With its smaller classes, better-equipped facilities, and less government interference, Berkeley STEM Academy has attracted some of the region’s best and brightest teachers. Most faculty members have graduate degrees and more than a decade of high school or college teaching experience. With three times more planning and preparation time during the day, our teachers have the freedom to use the advanced tools, materials, and technology at their disposal to thoughtfully craft and implement engaging, student-focused, relevant and meaningful lessons designed specifically for the students in their charge.

Applications for Admission are being evaluated and acted upon in the order received. Delayed applicants may be “waitlisted” if space is unavailable at the time of application.
