Brentwood Academy (grades 6-12) is a co-educational, independent college preparatory school dedicated to nurturing and challenging the whole person--body, mind, and spirit--to the glory of God. Having a vision of the “heart” is foundational to the Brentwood Academy experience.
When Bill Brown established BA in 1969, he and the founding trustees envisioned a school that would emphasize the development of each student’s body, mind, and spirit.
Their intent was to establish a school that would encourage the cultivation of relationships, service, and community outreach, as well as provide an excellent academic experience.
Through the triangle philosophy, symbolizing the spiritual, academic and athletic dimensions of a whole person, we seek to ensure that strong academics and challenging athletics can prosper together in an environment where God is the foundation.
A spirit of cooperation, rooted in wholesome relationships, is necessary for this model of education to be effective.  See more at: https://www.brentwoodacademy.com/
