S P E C I A L A D V E R T I S I N G S E C T I O N AUSTIN PREPARATORY SCHOOL is on a journey in the footsteps of St. Augustine, who articulated that we have two teachers: internal and external. Along their journey, Austin students learn to listen, and follow, the voice of their inner teacher. Call it religion, spirituality, or ethics; each student learns that habit of mind and heart. And that affects their lives, not just their studies. Ask anyone who has spent any time with us and you'll hear about the Austin community. Diversity matters, and the school welcomes different personalities, viewpoints, ideas, and life paths. At Austin Prep, students feel completely part of the community while remaining free to be themselves. ¢ "Austin students develop an extraordinary ability to discern the superficial and the essential, between what's merely expedient and what has lasting value." —Headmaster James Hickey, Ph.D. Since 1925, BEMENT SCHOOL in historic Deerfield has offered a co-educational junior boarding and day school to students in kindergarten through grade nine.

The student/ teacher ratio is six to one, and class size averages 12 students. Upper school students may participate in an exchange program with L'Ermitage School in France, and trips are offered regularly to China and various Spanish-speaking countries. In addition, ninth grade students travel to the Dominican Republic to participate in a service learning program at the La Suiza Orphanage. ¢ "Bement is a close-knit community where the whole child is valued, and emphasis is placed equally on academic achievement, hard work, mutual respect, and the importance of being a good citizen."—Kim Loughlin, Director of Admission and current parent BERWICK ACADEMY offers a rigorous academic program, coupled with significant opportunities for enrichment in our award-winning arts and athletic programs. The world-class faculty is committed to students, and curricular and extracurricular offerings are focused on the development of students at each distinct grade level. Berwick has been recognized nationally among independent schools for its Innovation Center, and is currently completing a new Wellness Center, further demonstrating Berwick's dedication to helping students live its core values: balance, engagement, excellence, and integrity. Berwick Academy has combined a tradition of academic excellence with a commitment to living the school's mission of "promoting virtue and useful knowledge among the rising generations." ¢ "With new programs in innovation, makerspace,
