Burke College & Career Academies and Pathways

  • The Academies of Burke High School LogoThe Burke Academy Model brings three important advantages to EVERY Bulldog.

    1.  EVERY student has a TEAM of​ ​teachers working for them EVERY day.

    In each academy, teachers are teamed together across disciplines to support all students.  English, Social Studies, Math, and Science teachers build collaborative projects and support each individual student.  This allows for additional support for students who need to be challenged as well as those who need further assistance.

    2.  EVERY student can feel engaged.

    With ELEVEN different pathways in the three Academies, every student can find their passion.  Even if you may not be interested in a particular career field, academy pathways are focused on building skills in the areas of writing, reading, problem-solving, math, engineering, and the creative arts.  The academies are built so EVERY student gets to explore their interests!

    3.  EVERY student will feel prepared for the future.

    The Burke Academies are dedicated to building successful pathways for EVERY student's future goals.  Whether they are looking for a four-year collegiate experience, trade school, apprenticeship, or even going right into the workforce, the academy experience will open doors that may previously had been closed.  By working with local businesses and developing real-life projects, students will build a resume that shows leadership, teamwork, time management, and responsibility - all while having FUN!  Work-placed internships, real-world experiences, and practical problem solving will prepare EVERY student for THEIR  future.
