What makes Burlington College Unique? More than anything else, it lies in putting the needs and goals of students at the center of college life. Above all, Burlington College treats students as individuals—individuals with important contributions to make to the intellectual spirit of the college community. Working in small discussion-centered classes, generally of between eight and 15 members, students come to know each other and themselves well. In this non-traditional learning environment, classes can take on lives of their own as students direct the discussions, and instructors, at times, become equal observer-learners in the process.

A progressive approach to education is reflected in the College's narrative evaluation system. At the onset of each course or other learning activity, student and instructor negotiate a learning contract that sets expectations as well as specific learning goals. At the end of the semester, both student and instructor provide written evaluations of progress made toward these central goals. The evaluation period becomes, then, not a harried time of cramming for exams or scrambling for a grade, but a time for reflection on what one has learned.
