  • Summer @ Burke

    Register Today: Small Classes + In-Person

    Academic Enrichment | Creative Arts | Learning Support | College Prep

    Students began returning to Edmund Burke School's campus in November 2020, and we are excited to continue with in-person programming this summer – paired with our rigorous health and safety protocols. We will be offering a few all-virtual classes as well for families who prefer that format.

    * NOTE: programs for rising 5th graders will open for registration on April 16. Please contact summer@burkeschool.org to receive a notification on that date.
This is a very welcome class after the shutdown. A lifeline for many and we are so appreciative you are offering it.
