To the Glory of God
Nurturing & Challenging
Brentwood Academy is a Christ-centered community committed to advancing knowledge, cultivating wisdom, and developing resiliency in students while they explore who they are and discover who God wants them to be.
Summer at BA
Our summer program is an extension of our mission to nurture and challenge each whole person. Students are welcomed, supported, and inspired by teachers, coaches and staff. We invite your family to join us and experience Summer at BA.
BA at 50
Brentwood Academy began with a vision of being an educational environment focused on nurturing each student’s mind, body and spirit. Today we are proud to remain on mission after 50 years, investing in students academically, physically and spiritually to the glory of God.
Brentwood Academy's Robotics Team, the “Iron Eagles,” was founded in 2013 by BA physics teacher Wendy Stallings. In its first year, the team of five worked very hard, winning the state competition and went on to compete in the 2014 VEX Robotics World Championship competition in Anaheim, California. In 2014-15, more than 40 students joined the program to make up six teams.
Brentwood Academy has become the first school in the Nashville area to begin using SynDaver’s second-generation Anatomy Model, a full-sized, head-to-toe synthetic human, to provide students with hands-on learning opportunities for anatomy and pre-med education.
Our college counseling program begins with educational workshops in the 8th grade and continues through the senior year with increasingly more involved and individualized programming. Students are encouraged to engage in self-reflection, find their passions, develop their minds, and take charge of their futures in an environment that provides both challenge and support.
For three days in January, the upper school suspends the normal school day to challenge students through various nontraditional, experiential programs called Winterim. Winterim provides opportunities to fulfill the school’s mission through exploration in academics, arts, outdoors, and athletics. Enrichment opportunities are also offered through cultural exchanges, community service, and internships.
