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.
