Winning boys and girls soccer teams, championship girls volleyball team, and district champion cross country team add to the athletic successes at Central. In 2009, the wrestling team competed in the provincial championships and came out as the BOYS BC champions, this is Central's first comeback banner win in the wrestling division.

Central's ACE-IT program is a unique program that offers students from across the district to learn culinary skills from Chef Wade and his staff. These students learn a variety of skills including catering a number of dinners, conferences, and events.

Due to the Seismic Mitigation Program in British Columbia, construction began on a new, seismically sound school building in 2009. This new school building was constructed where the previous school’s outdoor field was located. Burnaby Central Secondary School’s new campus opened in September 2011, and is the most advanced and eco friendly school in Burnaby.
