While walking down the

Senior Steps, I am tracing the paths of the

many students that have come before me.

Underneath the Seminary door leading

to these steps, a deep impression from all

the footsteps has evolved; I love this. As

a student, throughout each day, I traverse

the various buildings on campus, but then

I am also traversing each of my interests.

I love that each day, I may wake up, take

woodworking, and then head to the upper

part of campus to take modern physics and

mathematics. Here, many of the opportuni-

ties open to students seem boundless, and

many are. At Burr and Burton, everyone

is working for and with you, but you are

also pushed to form your own conclusions,

to truly think for yourself. Everyone has the

opportunity to make the best of a Burr and

Burton education.

Dear Families,

If you are reading this letter, you are taking a look at the future. As you will see in the pages of this book, Burr and Burton Academy is a school where students can explore a World of Opportunities. We take seriously our mission to educate students intellectually and morally for a life of responsibility, integrity and service, and, through our vast array of offerings, we ensure that each student can find a place to shine in this community.

Our philosophy is simple: hire the best teachers, provide superb facilities, nurture a culture that values achievement in all its forms, celebrate the many accomplishments of our students, and strive for excellence in everything we do. We take a broad view of education and recognize the vital role that academics, athletics and the arts each play in preparing students for the 21st century.

Is it possible that a school of this caliber, with this range of opportunities, serves as the “public” school for our sending towns? The answer is, Yes: if you live in a sending town, your town pays the tuition. If you do not live in a sending town, we offer financial aid so we can help you bridge the gap between the cost of our tuition and what you can afford.

So, please enjoy this book. Take a look at our website (www.burrburton.org). Check out our course offerings. Imagine yourself as part of this community. And then come for a visit, because seeing is believing. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Burr and Burton Academy.

Sincerely,

Mark H. Tashjian Headmaster

During their four years

of English, students

are introduced to classic

and contemporary

literature and poetry.

Their teachers guide

them in their discovery

of the power of voice

in speech and writing

as they develop

control over style and

content. The English

Department teachers are

dedicated to helping all

students to find personal

meaning and enjoyment

through reading across

a variety of genres, time

periods, and cultures and

to become discerning

and independent

thinkers.

17 courses including

Advanced Placement english

Search for identity

Man and nature in America

Creative Writing

The goal of the

Mathematics

Department is to

provide all students with

a broad mathematical

understanding and

appreciation of problem

solving. This goal is

achieved as students

engage in a progressively

more demanding

series of courses that

offer appropriate rigor

and opportunities

for mastery. Students

are encouraged to

be confident and

competent in their

skills and able to use

mathematical tools in

their lives.

18 courses including

Honors Algebra

Advanced Placement Calculus

Accounting

Statistics

Through their study of

Social Studies,

students are taught

to understand and

participate in the

democratic process

as well as to have

an awareness and

understanding of the

interdependence of

the global community.

They are also taught

to understand and

appreciate their own

history and heritage, and

to accept diverse people,

ideas, and cultures in

their local community

and the greater society.

responsible decisions

based on information.

16 courses including

Advanced Placement Biology

At Burr and Burton

each class is small, which

gives us more one-on-one

time with teachers who are

passionate about what they

do. The smaller classes create

more of a community feeling

in the whole school, where

everyone knows one another.

I play three sports, and the

bonds I’ve formed with all

of my teammates is another

reason why I love going to

Burr and Burton.

Students from the Wirtemberg-Gymnasium in Stuttgart, Germany, have been coming to Burr and Burton for a two-week visit in

October every year since 1981. Burr and Burton students visit Stuttgart in the spring.

The primary goal of the Foreign Languages program is to achieve oral and written proficiency

in real-life situations. During their course of study, students will acquire a substantial vocabulary, a

solid foundation in grammar, and a broadened cultural awareness, all while enjoying the learning

experience. Due to the advantages of block scheduling, students can study multiple languages and

reach exceptionally high levels during their four years at Burr and Burton.

The faculty members in the Media Arts and Sciences Department teach students how to construct, use, and interpret

messages across multiple media types in order to inform, manage, relate to

and influence each other within and across social contexts and cultures.

Through practical experience in three core areas — research, exploration

and production — students learn lifelong interpersonal, media, and

communication skills.

• Students explore technology with software applications such as Lego

Mindstorms, Robolab, Toon Boom, and 2D Animation Studio.

• Digital television cameras and Avid editing stations allow students to

create original films from conception to final cut.

Burr and Burton is a member

of the Marble Valley League

and competes statewide in

Division I and II. Playing on a

team develops communication

and decision-making skills as

well as discipline, all of which

carry over to the classroom.

The entire faculty is supportive

of the school’s athletic teams,

and many of the coaches are

also classroom teachers. The

coaching staff is as committed

to the principle of good

sportsmanship as they are

to coaching their athletes

to reach their potential as competitors.

What I love most about Burr

and Burton are the vast

opportunities to try

something new and get

involved. I transferred in

as a sophomore and before

I knew it, my afternoons

were filled with sports

for new committees I had

joined. I went out for the

track team and the alpine

things I had never done

before — and ended up

finding two new sports

I loved and meeting

new friends.

Field Study is a course that offers guided off-campus job experiences with area businesses. The

Field Study coordinator works with students to place them in a local business, agency, or professional

office that is related to their area of interest. Field Study is designed to give students an opportunity

to receive part of their education within the larger community. It is not a job, but an educational

program in a different location, through a different process, and with teachers who are not in the

school classroom but the “classroom of life.”

Over 100 businesses in Manchester and the surrounding communities have taken part in this

program including:

i n t h E C O m m u n i t y

Service is an integral part

of the school’s mission, and

the Service Learning Program gives students the

opportunity to work with a

multitude of nonprofit organizations in the greater Manchester

community as well as for global needs. Students work locally for

organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the Food Cupboard,

and Albany and Rutland missions. Some recent global projects

have included a Walk for Water to benefit well drilling in Africa,

KickAIDS to educate youth in Africa about AIDS through soccer,

and special events to raise money for earthquake victims in Haiti and

Chile. Every student who attends Burr and Burton experiences first-

hand how working together can build a brighter future.

Each semester, fifty students will relocate to the Mountain Campus to experience education in a vastly different setting:

a classroom of 100 acres of wilderness surrounded by the

Green Mountain National Forest. Students will study

environmental science, humanities and the arts while under-

going rigorous leadership challenges as part of this experiential

education program.

At the end of the semester, students will have developed an in-depth understanding of the human

relationship with the environment, a deep appreciation for the meaning and power of “community,”

and a clear vision of their own potential to effect positive change

in this world, all while exploring the extraordinary beauty and

complexity of the natural world. Students will bring this broader

vision and passion back to the main campus once they return

from their time on the mountain.

The School and College Counseling Office assists students and parents in

charting a path through Burr and Burton and beyond. College and career planning begins

when a student enters Burr and Burton and continues throughout the four years of high

school. Workshops and parent forums are offered every year to help families navigate the

college-application process.

With a broad understanding of the college and career landscape, our counselors seek to find

the right “fit” for each student based on interests, achievements, and aspirations.

The atmosphere at Burr and Burton is

second to none. The supportive, bright and goal-

oriented students, aided by an encouraging group

of faculty members, help make the school

a fun and unique place to be. I wouldn’t want

to be anywhere else.

The Target program is an alternative

education program that addresses the unique

needs of students whose education benefits

from individual attention. Target’s flexible

instructional program and small class sizes

(2-4 students) are designed to ensure the

success of each student. The objective of

Target is to have every student graduate from high school well prepared to enter the work

force or go on to higher education with self-esteem, knowledge, and practical skills.

Since 2001, the program has been at Campbell House, a renovated barn

on Richville Road in Manchester, just two miles from the main campus.

Target teachers engage the students in classroom instruction for half the

day. Students also have internships at local businesses where they have the

opportunity to learn real-life skills.
