Mission Statement

Edmund Burke Academy is located in scenic Burke County. It was founded in 1960 supporting grades 1-8 based on Christian ideals and principles. Later, the school expanded to include grades 9-12 and had the first graduating class in 1971. Since its beginning, the school itself has met in a variety of places ranging from a Masonic Lodge (which has since been torn down) to a building (where the Burke County Board of Education is housed today) to a home (the Brown House).
The present building was built by EBA families and volunteers who shared the same vision and wanted to provide the best for their children. Without this type of loyalty, work ethic, vision, and sacrifice, our school would not be the family that it is today.
Edmund Burke Academy is proud of our 58 years of academic excellence. Edmund Burke offers a full college-preparatory academic program, a full literary program, and a solid athletic program.
