Why A Small School?

As a close-knit community of 315 students and 60 faculty, Burke ensures that each individual (and family) is known and engaged.

In times of stress or uncertainty, this relatively small size confers tremendous value.

We can adapt swiftly and creatively to change. We can adjust our supports and resources as needed. And students and families have multiple points of contact – from advisors to Grade Deans to the Head of School – when they are in need.
