Burr & Burton Academy

United States of America, Vermont, Manchester

Since its founding in 1829, Burr and Burton has been an independent Vermont high school with a public mission. It serves as the local high school for area students, while also attracting students from overseas.

Situated at the foot of Mt. Equinox and overlooking picturesque Manchester Village, Burr and Burton is a school with a proud tradition of educating students of diverse backgrounds and talents in a supportive and caring environment.

Burr and Burton seeks international students who are highly motivated to live and learn in the United States.

The international program is intentionally small, so admission to the program is very competitive. The small size of Burr and Burton's international program, about 70 students annually, allows teachers and staff to give a great deal of personal attention to international students, and allows international students ample opportunity to improve their English and integrate into the school and community culture.

Countries represented by international students at Burr and Burton typically include China, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Switzerland, Spain, Vietnam, Germany, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, and Mexico.
