  • At Edmund Burke School

    15% of our annual budget is dedicated to Financial Aid

    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.

    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 families as possible.
Our financial aid program supports student participation in all school-sponsored academic, athletic, and social activities – ensuring that every facet of school life is open to every student.

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.
