Burke Life

Student Activities

Student Clubs

Complementing academics, arts, and athletics, Edmund Burke School is home to 40 student-led clubs, organizations, and affinity groups.

Many clubs meet each Friday during the school day (while others meet during lunch or after school) and encompass social action, publications, dance, chess, and yoga, among many other pursuits and passions.

Student Government

Burke's student-elected leadership organizes and runs one of Burke's important traditions: our weekly all-school assemblies. Student government members also work together on a variety of projects – ranging from organizing fundraisers to collaborating with administrators on school policies.

The Student Government operates under rules outlined in the student-written Burke Student Constitution.
