Edmund Burke School

Burke consciously brings together students who are different from one another in many ways, actively engages them in their own education, holds them to high expectations, gives them power and responsibility, and supports and advances their growth as skilled and independent thinkers who step forward to make positive contributions to the world in which they live.

We are an independent, co-ed, college-prep school inspired by Edmund Burke’s words: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” We set high academic standards while emphasizing responsibility and social justice. Our community is vibrant and inclusive, and our classrooms buzz with lively discussions and hands-on projects. Our strong advisory program allows us to really know and appreciate our diverse student body. Come see us at our Open House on October 14, from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM!
