  • At Edmund Burke School

    15% of our annual budget is dedicated to Financial Aid
    Burke's mission directs us to bring together students who are different from one another in many ways. To that end, we strive to be an affordable independent school choice for as many familes as possible.

    Burke is its people. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our top priorities has been keeping our community whole and supporting our families. With that in mind, we turned all fundraising attention to Financial Aid in 2020 – knowing that our aid budget would need to increase.

    We also continue to follow a need-blind admissions process, so we do not consider applicants' financial circumstances when making admissions decisions.
Our families represent a broad range of financial situations and we want to discuss what might make Burke affordable for you. Please don't hesitate to be in touch.
