School Notes:

The founders of Burlington Day School and The Elon School shared a similar vision.  Though they were at different stages in their journeys, both were determined to provide an excellent independent education option for our community and were committed to similar core values in which students are challenged yet supported. In July 2013, BDS and TES merged to form a pre-kindergarten to 12th grade college preparatory school: The Burlington School. Rooted in core learning, character and community, our curriculum is progressive and focused on the creative, communications and critical thinking skills needed in the 21st century.  We develop our students’ intellectual curiosity, their love of learning and their desire to make a better world.  Our students deserve the finest education, and we intend to provide it to them.
