In addition to one-on-one counseling services, classroom-based programs and groups take place throughout the year at all grade levels. These courses and groups cover a broad range of topics related to social-emotional health and wellbeing.
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.
