Dear Burke's Families,

The magic of Burke's is created by our devoted leadership, faculty, and staff, but just as importantly, it is created by all our committed families and the community we build together. From the Parents’ Association leadership perspective, our goal is to enable our community to flourish.  These community events, big and small, are what create long-lasting memories for our daughters and give us an incredible opportunity to be part of our daughter’s school experience.
We welcome all parents/guardians to join us! There are always opportunities big and small to be present in the Burke’s community.  
As parents and guardians, we help to create the stories that become pages in our daughter’s memory book of their time at Burke’s.  We are all on this joyous journey together, and together we can only make it better and more memorable.

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.
