School Notes:

  • Brenwood Academy envisions a challenging but age appropriate curriculum, exceeding state and national standards that combine foundational knowledge and leading edge technology, in an inclusive and diverse environment that simulates learning, creativity and imagination.  Small class size and state certified professional teachers and trained and experienced Early Childhood professionals make up the teaching staff. An excellent foundation of academics is paramount for every student with an emphasis placed on age appropriate and developmentally rich learning experiences.  The Pre-K program through 5th grade programs place an emphasis on “learning through doing” and “hands on” experiences,  with an elementary program that include phonics, handwriting, creative writing, reading and strong reading comprehension strategies.  A well-rounded program of math, science, social studies, foreign language, physical education, music and art is included in this balanced curriculum. Brenwood Academy is currently accredited by AdvancED/SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), through district accreditation received in 2010.  This very important accreditation indicates the school district’s commitment to excellence and demonstrates a proven level of quality throughout its programs.
