BMA seeks passionate ski racers eager to pursue their limitless academic and athletic potential in our community based on trust.
Our students experience success in ski racing, but how we maximize their potential as ski racers is what develops the critical qualities needed for them to succeed in college and the rest of life.
BMA student-athletes must be willing to embrace our ethos, in which hard work, commitment, accountability, and risk-taking are paramount. Values are equally integral to BMA, and an essential part of our values is a sharp focus on developing lifelong learners through an innovative academic approach.
Admissions to Burke is competitive and available spaces each year are extremely limited. Admission is based on past demonstration of strong academic and athletic achievement, demonstrated character values, and a commitment to the pursuit of greatness.
All applicants must be competitive alpine ski racers who exemplify extreme passion and unwavering dedication to their sport.
