Berea High School was a high school located in Berea, Ohio, United States. It was founded in 1882, and the current structure was built in 1929. It was the first of two public high schools in the Berea City School District, the other being Midpark High School. Berea High School served grades nine through twelve.

Beginning with the 2013–2014 school year, Midpark High School became the 7th- to 9th-grade building, while all high-school students in the Berea City School District started attending Berea-Midpark High School, the building which previously held Berea High School. Their new mascot is the Titans.[2]

Berea's school colors were scarlet and royal blue. The school's fight song was Ohio State University's "Across the Field".
