• Welcome to Burris!

  • Academics

    As a laboratory school for Ball State University, we are able to address each student’s needs, helping them grow from students to problem solvers. Our high-tech approach to education—combined with a focus on fine arts and extra-curricular opportunities—take our students experiences well beyond readin’, writin’ and ‘rithmetic.

  • Admissions and Lottery

    Any family may in Indiana apply to Burris, but you will need to be accepted through our lottery system in order for your student to attend. We offer three types of lotteries: general, sibling and high-ability.
