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. 

We take pride in making this journey a true partnership with your family, and we look forward to getting to know you.
Registration for tours and other admissions events has opened for the 2023-24 school year. You can begin your process by inquiring here.
With gratitude,
Natalie Mast
Director of Admissions
