Alumni Parent Mark Pécheck

We’ve been so grateful to raise our children alongside other families that share our emphasis on character as well as academics, and therefore we, of course, prioritized our philanthropic giving to something that has held so much value for us — Berkeley Hall School!
Located in Los Angeles, CA, Berkeley Hall School is a private, coeducational school for students in preschool through grade 8. Rigorous academics in a supportive atmosphere and grounded character development allow students to become fearless scholars and conscientious citizens - gain a love of learning, leadership with social responsibility, creativity with moral integrity, and self-esteem with compassion for others and the environment.
