Tuition for the 2023-24 school year is $19,987 for sending town students and $22,487 for students who do not reside in a sending town. Those who do not reside in a sending town may want to consider the scholarship and financial aid options.

Burr and Burton’s sending towns are Danby, Dorset, Dover, Londonderry, Landgrove, Manchester, Mt. Tabor, Peru, Stratton, Sunderland, Wardsboro, Weston, and Winhall. Families that are approved as primary residents of a sending town do not need any form of financial aid. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be aware that financial aid awards do not cover special education services for students who attend Burr and Burton as private pay students (those who live outside of Burr and Burton’s traditional sending towns). If your child currently receives support services as outlined within an IEP or Educational Support plan of any kind beyond those provided to the general student population, a parent or guardian will be billed and held responsible for the cost of these additional services. Additionally, if your child is not currently on an educational support plan, but it is determined that they would benefit from special services their parent or guardian would also be responsible for these costs.    

Area Tuition and Financial Aid

List of 2 items.

  • Financial Aid

    Burr and Burton Academy has a limited financial aid budget that is awarded on a need basis to qualified students. Financial aid is available to qualified families living in towns that do not tuition their students to Burr and Burton at their annual town meeting.

    Burr and Burton Academy seeks to enroll students of strong academic potential, good character and diverse backgrounds who are from families who understand and share the values of the school. It is expected that both parents will contribute to the cost of educating their child. To be eligible, recipients must be in good academic and disciplinary standing.
  • The Process

    Burr and Burton Academy annually uses the Smart Aid - Financial Aid service to determine financial aid. The service provides a need-based analysis that includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. If seeking more information, there are Smart Aid resources on the lower, left side of the page.

    The service does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give. All financial aid application information is kept confidential. Applications are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee, which makes decisions based on available funds. Financial aid offers are then sent to applicants. All students who are awarded financial aid must reapply each year.
