There are moments in life that require us to stand up for our beliefs.
Fifty years ago, in the midst of turmoil in Washington, D.C., Burke was born from one of these moments. And the
same beliefs that inspired our founders remain equally important today.
Intellect. Inclusion. Integrity.
Respect for the dignity and humanity of all people.
And the responsibility to make the world more just.
For decades, Burke has given students the knowledge and courage to stand up and make positive contributions to the world. Now that Burke is 50 years old, it’s time to ensure that we’re here for at least another 50 years by updating our campus and strengthening our long-term financial outlook.
We invite you to join us and stand up for what Burke means to you.
We love our location in Washington, DC and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
The city is an important part of our identity and our curriculum. And we want to make the most of our campus, especially the historic Mooskin-Roth Hall.
The chief goal of the Stand with Burke Campaign is to optimize our space, allowing for more effective student collaboration and conversation while keeping Burke competitive in the world of DC independent schools.
