Who We Are


The Katherine Delmar Burke School campus is a unique 3.5-acre space in the Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco. With 65% open space, our expansive outdoor campus is unsurpassed in the city with a large grass athletic field, a sports court, and two multipurpose courtyards with play structures. Our facilities are state-of-the-art and include a 5,500-square-foot library, two technology labs, three science labs, five art, music and drama studios, a gymnasium/auditorium, and large light-filled classrooms.

However, it is not simply our acreage or outstanding facilities that distinguish Burke's; it is what our campus enables our students and teachers to do. Our accomplished faculty members take full advantage of our outdoor setting and wide-open spaces to foster the learning, well-being, and social development of our girls. Step onto the Burke's campus, and you will see active and healthy girls fully engaged in their education.
Burke's mission is to educate, encourage and empower girls. Our school combines academic excellence with an appreciation for childhood so that students thrive as learners, develop a strong sense of self, contribute to community, and fulfill their potential, now and throughout life.
