Burr and Burton Academy
Burr and Burton Academy was founded in 1829 in Manchester, Vermont. It is a private, coeducational, independent school that holds the prestige of the school and its students at the utmost level. Burr and Burton is a high school, offering grades 9 to 12.
Being in Vermont, the secondary school is in a rural area, right outside the village of Manchester, at the foot of Mount Equinox. As a private school, it does not have any religious affiliations.
With only about 700 students and 75 teachers, the academy is considered smaller than most, therefore making it more difficult to gain admission to.
Students from the academy go forth to colleges like Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and more. It is seen as an academic school more than athletic. The cost of tuition is expensive for students outside the 12 counties that surround the school, otherwise free.
