Visiting Burke

All it takes is one visit to Burke to see that our community is special. We offer many ways to experience Burke classes and activities, including tours, interviews and Open House events. We invite you to come see why our students look so happy while they're working hard. 

Summer Tours
During the summer, we are happy to host families at Burke, even though most faculty and students are gone. Please contact our office to set up a visit: 202-362-8882 x 670 or

Student Visits (September - May)
Upon receipt of the application, a member of our office will contact you to arrange a time for your child to visit the school. Visits generally take place between 8 am - 1 pm. During the visit, your child will spend time attending classes with a current student as a guide. Following the visit, the applicant will meet for an interview with a member of the admissions team. Burke does not have a uniform, so please have your child wear comfortable clothing on the day of their visit.

Parent Interviews 
As part of the application process, we hold parent interviews with you to find out more about your interest in Burke and talk with you about what we can offer your family. These interviews are typically scheduled the day your child comes in for a visit.
