Burkevale Protestant Separate School is a Protestant separate school located in Penetanguishene, Ontario. It is the only school in the Penetanguishene Protestant Separate School Board and the only remaining Protestant separate school in Ontario.[1]

The school's original two-storey red brick building was built in 1882, with a later addition added in 1909-1910. The original structures were demolished to construct the current building in June 1965. The school received $3.5 million from the Ontario government in 2016 for renovations and the construction of four new permanent classrooms to replace four portable classrooms in current use.[2]
