What makes Burke's unique? If you ask one of our families about their answer to that question, you would get a wide range of responses! There are so many different facets to this community and campus that make a Burke's education so special. Click below to learn more about some of the many things that set us apart.

Why a Girls' School?

After more than 100 years of educating young women, we still have a passion for single-gender education. Why? The answer lies in girls who aren't afraid to raise their hands, sports teams where every position is filled by a young woman, and the impressive slate of high schools and colleges that our alumnae eventually attend. According the National Coalition of Girls' Schools, girls' school graduates plan to enter engineering at a rate three times that of their co-ed school counterparts, and given that Burke's is located in a city where the booming tech industry is dominated by men, that speaks to us. 

The following video from the NCGS illustrates the point more fully.
