Who We Are

Burgundy believes children learn best in an inclusive, creative and nurturing environment that engages the whole child. Our innovative, hands—on approach to education cultivates independent thinking, promotes academic excellence, instills respect for diversity, and teaches responsibility for self, for others, and for the natural world.

At Burgundy, education is a cooperative enterprise in which a community of students, teachers and families works together to benefit the educational process.

Guided by the belief that we are inherently connected to all people and the world around us, we nurture in our students a joy of learning, an appreciation for human diversity, and, on a campus in which every classroom opens to the outdoors, a sense of stewardship for the environment.

Our philosophy is rooted in the concepts of progressive education, which honors the physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of children, allowing growth to unfold at each child’s own pace. Through work, exploration and play, we seek to educate the whole child, not just the intellect. We know from experience and cognitive science that children learn best not only by doing, but also by thinking about what they are doing. Our approach is to stimulate students' questions and to set the stage for learning with materials, situations, and ideas from which the students can construct their own understanding.

Equipped with a strong academic foundation and a deep understanding of their responsibility to their local and global communities, Burgundy students successfully navigate and influence their world.
