About The Burlington School
The founders of Burlington Day School and The Elon School shared a similar vision. Though they were at different stages in their journeys, both were determined to provide an independent education option for our community and were committed to similar core values in which students are challenged yet supported.
In a move to streamline and strengthen that vision, the Board members, parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of both schools have come together to form one school. In July 2013, BDS and TES merged to form an independent pre-kindergarten to 12th grade college preparatory school. Initially we will operate the merged school on the two campuses currently used by BDS and TES. As we prepare for our future, we are developing a comprehensive campus plan to unify our school at one location.
Rooted in core learning, character and community, our curriculum is progressive and focused on the creative and critical thinking skills needed in the 21st century. We intend to develop our students’ intellectual curiosity, their love of learning and their desire to make a better world. Our students deserve the finest education, and we intend to provide it to them.
