Passion for Skiing. Learning for Life.
Burke Mountain Academy provides passionate ski racers the opportunity to pursue their limitless academic and athletic potential in a community based on trust. BMA embraces an ethos in which hard work is held in the highest esteem and risking failure and learning from success provide exceptional preparation for life beyond Burke.
Founded when highly motivated young ski racers pleaded with their coach to provide an opportunity to pursue their passion for skiing while providing necessary academic support, BMA’s purpose remains the same to this day: creating an outstanding environment that delivers an indelible experience for student-athletes who wish to dedicate themselves to being the best they can be, to carry their dedication to alpine or Nordic ski racing over into the classroom, and to do so with commitment to character and values.
Members of the BMA community are called Burkies, and we invite you to open the virtual doors of our school to have a look at our student-athlete and alumni achievements, our program offerings, and the distinct traditions and principles that set us apart from other ski academies.
