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.

FCS Raffle to benefit Angel Tree Project

Mrs. Winkler would like me to share that the Fellowship of Christian Students will be raffling a Spartan/Georgia wall art item. Members of the FCS will visit homerooms daily to sell the $5 raffle tickets. Tickets will also be available in the office. The winner will be drawn at the Christmas Program on Decmber10th. The money raised will be used in local missions to purchase Christmas items through the Angel Tree project. Please support this mission as we seek to teach our young people to serve others. A picture of the Georgia is attached. “Do not forget to do good and help one another, because these are the sacrifices that please God.” Hebrews 13:16
