An independent high school with a public mission and global reach.

Burr and Burton is a "town academy" with a public mission. Students who reside in a sending town can attend free of charge. Sending towns vote every year to approve the school's tuition, which is paid through state property taxes. 

Sending Towns:
Danby, Dorset, Dover, Landgrove, Londonderry, Manchester, Mt. Tabor, Peru, Stratton, Sunderland, Wardsboro, Weston, and Winhall

Admission is also open on an annual basis to students from other towns, some of which historically pay the state average tuition per student, also through state property taxes. For more information on tuitions and financial aid, please see our Tuition and Financial Aid page.

How to Enroll

If you currently have a student attending BBA, registering another child is simple, just log into your parent account and enter the Resources section. From there, select “Apply Another Child” to launch the registration form.

If this is the first time you have registered a student to attend BBA, you will need to create your parent account. To do so, select “REGISTRATION APPLICATION” on the right side of the page. This will launch the “Create an Account” window. Do not use the Username or Password fields that appear in the window. Rather, select “Create Account” on the lower left side. After submitting your information a message will appear directing you to check your email account. There you will retrieve an embedded link that allows you to establish a private/personal password. After establishing your username and password, you will be able to register your child.

Just below, you will find a downloadable guide that contains graphics to assist in the registration process.
