Surprise’s Premier Charter High School

William Burke

Mr. Burke is in his first full year as principal at e-Surprise, but has been with E-Institute for a number of years. He did his undergraduate work at The University of Southern California in Public Affairs, and has his Master’s degree from the University of Phoenix In Organizational Management. He is an ardent USC fan – Fight On!

Education is his third career. His first career seems like a different life to him. He owned and ran an equestrian training facility in Northern California. He had twenty-six acres and forty horses. After five years of working seven days a week, three-hundred-sixty-five days a year, he sold the business and moved on.

His next career lasted twenty-five years doing operations and client service management for various large and smaller start-up corporations. The corporate life was good, but after so many years he yearned for something else. He went back to school and became a history teacher. He took his experiences in management and love for education to e-Institute as an administrator.

Mr. Burke has been married for thirty-two years; he has two grown children, three horses and a dog.
