Dear Prospective Families,

In 1908, the Katherine Delmar Burke School opened with the goal of educating, encouraging, and empowering young women. We invite you to explore how we support that mission over a century later. Our dedicated faculty and staff, strong parent community, and spirited students are eager to connect with you.

At Burke's, we believe a highly academic environment is best achieved through a joyous learning experience. Each of our students learns how to embrace challenge, take risks, learn from mistakes, and achieve her personal best. 

Following a fully remote admissions season, we are excited to bring prospective families back on our beautiful campus, which is 65% outdoors. On campus tours will be available to fully vaccinated adults, as well as options for virtual tours. Masks will be required at all times.

We also encourage you to save the date for our Curriculum Preview, on Saturday, November 13th at 10:00 a.m. Our Curriculum Preview is an opportunity to sample mini classes, connect with faculty, students, and parents, and learn in depth about our program and practice.

We take pride in making this journey a true partnership with your family, and we look forward to getting to know you.
If you are interested in learning more about the 2022-23 school year, please sign up for a tour or email
With gratitude,
Natalie Mast
Director of Admissions
