Now more than ever, it is our duty to educate and prepare young women for the world that lies ahead of them. While their journey will be filled with endless opportunities and exciting possibilities, invariably there will be challenges to face and barriers to overcome. At Burke’s, we believe it is our responsibility to equip our students with the tools they need to be resilient, confident, and resourceful female leaders.

This is bold. This is Burke's.

WE WANT TO BECOME THE MODEL FOR K-8 GIRLS' EDUCATION IN THE COUNTRY.

There are many fine schools — public and independent — in the United States, but Burke's stands out as a place that uniquely combines academic rigor and joy. But the best institutions refuse to stand still. With your support, our great school will become the benchmark for K-8 girls’ education. As our campaign name suggests, we embark on this great adventure together.

To achieve that goal, we are launching an ambitious $20-million campaign

to enable us to enhance our beloved school:

Many Voices. Many Hands. All Burke’s.
