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 preschool-3 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 and critical thinking skills needed in the 21st century.  The core of our program is centered around the Triple A's: Academics, Arts, and Athletics. In a world of budget cuts, are students still receive an incredible arts education and an opportunity to play on a range of athletic teams. We develop our students` intellectual curiosity and further, their love of learning. Our students deserve the finest education, and we intend to provide it to them.
