Collaboratively developing a college plan tailored to each student's needs, interests, and goals.

We are proud of the range of colleges that our students attend, with the Class of 2022 matriculating at nearly 40 different institutions, both in the United States and abroad. This graduating class yielded a Jefferson Scholar at UVA, as well as students bound for schools in Canada, China, France, Ireland, and Scotland.

Between them, our Dean and Associate Dean of College Counseling have more than 30 years in the field and relationships with a wide network of colleges. We provide direct access to college admissions officers on our campus, through 160 small group meetings in 2021-22, the majority of which were in-person.

Burke also hosts a summer College Application Workshop for rising seniors, providing support with essay-writing and practice interviewing with real admissions officers.

* Although the College Counseling team does not meet formally with students until 11th grade, they provide information through sessions with 9th & 10th grade parents and at grade meetings with students.
