Burke's prepares able, motivated girls for academic challenge, life in community and lifelong love of learning. Burke's celebrates childhood as the best preparation for adulthood, enabling girls to take risks and become confident in who they are. Burke's embraces individual and cultural differences, teaching that each girl can make a difference in her world. For nearly a century, the Katherine Delmar Burke School has held a unique place in the education of girls. By pairing high academic standards with a community that encourages independence and self-confidence, Burke's has graduated generations of girls who excel in high school and beyond. Burke's challenges its girls through a demanding academic curriculum with a rich complement of arts, athletics, and community activities. As they advance to high school and beyond, Burke's graduates are empowered by their strong and enduring academic foundation, thirst for continued learning, clear sense of themselves, and confidence in what they can accomplish. At Burke's our entire program is based on our understanding of what works for girls. This understanding reflects extensive research and pedagogical innovation at leading universities informed by our ongoing observations and assessments of what works for our own students.
