From its founding in 1829, Burr and Burton has been an independent academy serving as the local high school for area students. It is known for its vigorous educational program in academics, athletics and the arts, as well as for its supportive, caring community, and its excellent faculty.
Because Burr and Burton is a "town academy" with a public mission, students who reside in the following thirteen sending towns can attend Burr and Burton free of charge: Manchester, Dorset, Danby, Dover, Londonderry, Landgrove, Mt. Tabor, Peru, Stratton, Sunderland, Wardsboro, Weston and Winhall. These towns vote every year to approve the school's tuition, which is paid through state property taxes.
Admission is also open on an annual basis to interested students from other towns.
Every year Burr and Burton welcomes students from other countries who are interested in spending a semester, year or more in an American high school, either living with a family or in a small dormitory close to the campus.
