  • IMPORTANT! Small Change to Morning Schedule!

    Starting Monday, November 12, morning classes at Burton Center for Arts and Technology will conclude at 10:50am instead of 11:00am. This is change due to an adjustment in the transportation schedule. Early morning transportation from base schools to Burton will stay the same. BCAT will still start morning classes at 7:30am. Afternoon classes and transportation to and from BCAT will also stay the same.

  • BCAT Center for Visual Arts Earns Major Award

    The Taubman Museum of Art plans to recognize the Burton Center for Arts and Technology with this year's Sheila S. Strauss Art Venture Award. Presented every year since 2009, the award recognizes outstanding leaders in our community that support the arts, education and volunteerism in partnership with the Museum. The Taubman and BCAT's Center for Visual Arts has a long standing collaborative partnership that has been renewed through 2027. As a testament to the collaborative efforts between them, over 300 Roanoke County students have been impacted by the program. These students were able to dig deeper with museum educators to complete 30 hours of semester coursework and also beautified our community with public art installations. The award will be given at the Taubman Museum of Art on November 12, 2018. To all teachers in the Center for Visual Arts -- congratulations on a well-deserved award!

  • Please Check Out Our New "Programs" Pages

    Starting last year, students in the Center for Mass Communication were tasked with filming and editing promotional videos for most of our programs. They were also tasked with re-designing each program with a newer logo that adequately symbolized the program while also featuring the iconic Burton "B". Under the guidance of Mr. Salo and Mr. Clemons, these students have delivered an excellent product. Please visit our "PROGRAMS" page (located at the top of this page) and check out some of the finished products!

  • Burns a Semi-Finalist for Major Award

    Shawn Burns, a mechatronics and robotics teacher, is one of 52 teachers and teams of teachers named semifinalists of the Harbor Freight Tools for Schools 2018 Prize for Teaching Excellence. Harbor Freight is a discount tool company with headquarters in California. Burns and more than 500 other skilled trades teachers applied for the prize. Judges in the competition look for teachers who “lead programs matched to a relevant career pathway for students,” according to the company. Teachers and teams from 27 states are included as semifinalists, with Burns as the lone representative from Virginia. The Burton Center is a Roanoke County school located in Salem. Three first-place winners are expected to be announced Nov. 15. Each will receive $100,000, with 70 percent going to the teacher’s skilled trades program.
