Burke is an independent, college-preparatory school that consciously brings together students who are different from each other in many ways. In an environment of civil discourse, Burke affords students respect for who they are, actively engages them in their own education, has high expectations for them, and gives them power and responsibility in order to advance their growth as skilled and independent thinkers who step forward to make positive contributions to the worlds in which they live. Burke fosters informed, open discussion, personal integrity, and action impelled by conscience, inspired by Edmund Burke's words: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for enough good men to do nothing.
