Brentwood Academy

Brentwood Academy (grades 6-12) is a co-educational, independent college preparatory school dedicated to nurturing and challenging each 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:

School Notes

  • Brentwood Academy's mission and ministry is rooted in the belief that strong relationships provide the best environment for students to flourish and reach their fullest potential. A student's greatest need is to be known by their teachers and peers and more importantly, to know Christ and have a personal relationship with Him. While we challenge each person in academics, athletics, and fine arts, our ultimate goal is to help young men and women discover their God-given talents and to sharpen those gifts to glorify God now and for the future. Our team of college counselors begins working with each student in the 8th grade to help them chart a course for what their future can hold after they graduate. This process is customized for every individual, taking into account their unique needs and dreams.

Best school in Brentwood by far.
- Posted by
Brentwood Academy is a community school with a family environment. The teachers are top notch and go above and beyond. The staff and faculty really care about my children. They are receiving a top notch education where they are stretched and encouraged all at the same time. My college age child that is a BA alum, was more than prepared for a college curriculum. The block schedule at BA helped him with time management as a college athlete. We are in our 9th year at BA and it has been a blessing to have other like-minded families and a school that has partnered with us to give our children a firm foundation.
