The barn and garden are unique to Burgundy's campus, and we use them to bring learning to life by integrating barn and garden activities with classroom curriculum. We do the same with our 500-acre Burgundy Center for Wildlife Studies.
- 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.
