John S. Burke Catholic High School opened in December 1964. In the years that followed, Burke Catholic students, grades 8-12, were involved in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. The Burke Broncos Spring Track team, Hawkeyes Basketball team, Wrestling, Ski and Swim teams Freshman, JV and Varsity Cheerleading squads and many intramural sports, were among the athletic pursuits of BCHS students. Beginning in 1968 the school mascot for all sports was officially changed to the Eagle. Photography, art, film, debate, science, foreign language and math clubs also garnered student interest. "Not Words, but Deeds," the school motto, reflects the character of BCHS students throughout it's hundred-year history. Concern for others and the pursuit of excellence remain hallmarks of this school. The success of the student's is evident in the fact that 99% of BCHS graduates attend college.
