The BMA Handbook reflects the core values of the school, and it is a crucial part of understanding what it means to be part of our community. As such, every student at Burke Mountain Academy is required to read and abide by the information presented in it.

Each fall, we ask students to meet with their advisors to discuss the information contained in the Handbook. By agreeing to abide by the rules as stated, the student commits to being a good citizen at Burke Mountain Academy. If they have a question, concern, or don’t understand something written in the Handbook, we ask that they talk with their advisor right away. The school is here to support the students and promote their interests.
