After receipt of the application, your child will be scheduled to visit Burke. 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.
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 for the same day your child comes in for a visit.
