  • 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.

Financial Aid Process

Links and deadlines for the 2024-25 admissions year will be published in the late summer. Below are approximate dates.

1. Complete "Burke's Financial Aid Form:" this quick and simple form indicates that you plan to apply for aid and signals that we should look for your application - due in December 2023
2. Complete the full application for aid in TADS / SSS: this is the 3rd party system that Burke, and many other independent schools, use to determine financial aid; you will need your Form 1040 and W2s to complete this step - opens in October 2023 / due in January 2024

* Burke's TADS/SSS ID code: 2956
