Updated: September 14, 2020

In Fall 2020, Burke is offering all-virtual athletics and PE courses, as well as hybrid programs for sports that can meet outdoors. Students enrolled in all programs received a "sports pack" with the equipment needed to train at home. Cross country and soccer have the option to participate in in-person conditioning and workouts at Burke's facilities in "pods," in accordance with the DC State Athletic Association's guidance.

Teamwork | Hard Work | Commitment | Respect

List of 3 items.

  • Our Mission

    we create an atmosphere where students feel safe and learn to challenge themselves and their teammates in a way that builds skills, confidence, and character.
  • Our Philosophy

    we eschew the "win-at-all-cost" model of coaching in favor of both wanting to win and using sports to teach broader lessons; draw from the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a nonprofit founded by Stanford University.
  • Core Values

    Teamwork: working together in a positive and inclusive manner toward a common goal; sharing responsibility toward continued improvement

    Hard Work: giving it your all, even when challenged and pushed to your limits; being consistent and balanced through exhaustion and staying focused on the tasks at hand

    Commitment: consistently showing up on time, prepared and ready to focus on giving your best effort for yourself and for the team

    Respect: combining dignity and empathy, best expressed through both verbal and non verbal communication
