Burgundy Farm Country Day School

Tel: (703)329-6968
  • You've discovered a one-of-a-kind independent school for students age 4 through grade 8.
  • We believe children learn best in an inclusive, creative, and nurturing environment that engages the whole child.
  • Students here are active partners in their education, and learning is joyful. The magic of Burgundy comes from 4 parts: campus, curriculum, culture, and community.Burgundy students enjoy two amazing campuses.
  • Our main campus is a former dairy farm, 26 partially wooded acres, just off the busy Beltway of metropolitan Washington, DC. Our West Virginia campus, the Burgundy Center for Wildlife Studies is nestled in 506 acres of a secluded valley in West Virginia and provides our students with exposure to nature and the natural world.Our curriculum grows out of and often takes inspiration from these incredible natural resources.
  • The curriculum is also hands-on and integrated for all our students.
  • We are a progressive and rigorous school that empowers children to explore, discover, and grow - in many ways, not just academically.
  • There is a strong social-emotional component to our curriculum in all grades.
