  • At Edmund Burke School

    15% of our annual budget is dedicated to Financial Aid
    At Burke, we follow a need-blind admissions process – meaning that we do not consider applicants' financial circumstances when making admissions decisions. Our financial aid program is also need-based, and not merit-based.

    Our 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 families as possible.
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.
