Burlington High School believes that a dynamic program of student activities is vital to the educational development of the student. Burlington High School Athletic Program should provide a variety of experiences to enhance the development of positive student habits and attitudes that will prepare them for adult life in a democratic society.

Athletics should function as an integral part of the total curriculum. It should offer opportunities to serve the school and community, to assist in the development of positive relationships and good will, to promote self-realization, all-around growth and good citizenship qualities.

Athletics plays an important part in the life of Burlington High School. Young people learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are integral parts of our athletic program.

Athletic competition also plays an important part in helping students develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition also improves school spirit and helps students develop pride in their school.
