EDMUND BURKE SCHOOL
4101 CONNECTICUT AVE., NW• WASHINGTON, DC 20008• 202-362-8882• WWW.BURKESCHOOL.ORG
Burke is an independent, co-ed, college
preparatory school with a great urban location in the
Van ness neighborhood of D.c. our founders were
inspired by the words of Edmund Burke: “All that is
necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men
do nothing,” and we set high academic expectations
while teaching students to be independent,
responsible citizens committed to social justice.
From the moment you walk through the door
you’ll notice our vibrant, warm and inclusive
atmosphere—students are cheerful, the halls are
filled with college-level artwork and the classrooms
buzz with lively discussions and hands-on projects.
We are a progressive school, which means our
teachers are up on the latest education research
and rely on interactive, engaging lessons rather
than static lectures. our graduates go on to terrific
colleges where they report being better prepared
than their peers. our small size ( 300 students,)
and strong advisory program allow us to really
understand and appreciate our diverse group of
kids—part of what makes Burke students so happy
while they work so hard!
