Burke’s Five-Year Strategic Plan — Experience. Connection. Growth. has been designed to reflect the values, ideas, and dreams of Burke’s broad community and will serve as our road map for the years ahead.
Far from a collection of words, each strategic priority is a bold commitment to our mission to educate, encourage and empower our students.
The Strategic Planning Committee membership was deliberately composed of faculty, staff, trustees, parents, and alumnae to encompass a wide range of perspectives and experiences. After hundreds of community interviews, hours of committee work, extensive stakeholder input, and navigating two pandemic years it is a joy to begin to put this plan into action.
Our last Strategic Plan served as the launch point for new classroom curriculum and programs, our successful Transportation Program, Burke’s gender inclusion policy and flexible uniform options, increased endowment and financial assistance, and much more. We are ready at this moment to push forward with new energy and high hopes for our students and Burke’s as an institution.
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.
