We believe learning can happen in any environment, whether on campus or while traveling. This ethos prepares students to engage in the world around them and find their own opportunities for intellectual growth.
Burke Mountain Academy’s college-preparatory academic program instills the confidence to take intellectual risks and the passion for pursuing them both here and on the journey of life beyond our campus.
The academic calendar and curriculum flow complement the athletic calendar, developing curious and bright minds while pursuing ski racing goals.
The academic component of our educational philosophy seeks to develop a personal commitment to lifelong learning. Three fundamental principles define our academic program:
- Stimulating intellectual curiosity
- Developing critical skills
- Building content and conceptual understanding
The academic experience at Burke is based on the liberal arts and is rooted in rigor to help teach the virtue of hard work. Our curriculum, which relies heavily on project-based and experiential learning, is constantly refined, reflecting our dedication to innovation and our commitment to providing a rich and challenging course of study to empower each student. Character development and lifelong intellectual curiosity are the ambitious destinations toward which we navigate; small classes sized for quality and tutorials are how we steer.
