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.
In fulfillment of our Mission Commitments, we strive to ensure that Burke’s is a school where all our students feel safe and comfortable to express their whole selves, including their gender identity.
As a girls’ school, we believe there are 400 ways to be a Burke’s girl. Burke’s supports, respects, and values each girl’s identity and expression across the gender spectrum. Burke’s is committed to the education of all students who identify as girls, regardless of their biological sex.
Our list of gender inclusion resources is currently being updated. Please reach out to Renita LiVolsi with any questions.
