Welcome, and congratulations: You have discovered a pre-K-8 school unlike any other! How so? As any current Burgundy parent or student can attest, Burgundy students love to come to school each day.
At our Alexandria campus, a former dairy farm, every indoor learning area opens to outdoor space and woods.
Nature is our laboratory for hands-on science and an ideal setting for active learning projects, whether at the Barn, pond, or stream in Alexandria, or at our 500-acre Burgundy Center for Wildlife Studies in West Virginia.
