"Burlington Day School is an independent, nonsectarian, coeducational school which exemplifies excellence in education. Students of different faiths and heritages are welcomed. Emphasizing a traditionally structured academic education, Burlington Day School seeks to maintain a relaxed small school atmosphere in which each student can develop individually in a climate of respect and understanding. Administration, staff, faculty, directors, and parents cooperate to establish an environment in which each student can experience positive growth intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.
Recognizing that education is a life long process involving the total person, we believe that our duty is to help prepare each student to embrace an ever changing world by providing a variety of experiences for achieving success. Furthermore, the BDS family treasures the concept of the independent school. Independence is fundamental to freedom. However, with freedom comes responsibility. We believe that this pattern of education can help us share in the development of caring productive citizens. Such people are mindful of their personal obligations, sensitive to the needs of others, supportive of their nation's highest aspirations, and aware of their responsibilities to the world community.
