Leaders grow here.
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.
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 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.
Brentwood Academy's award-winning robotics team, the Iron Eagles, was founded in 2013 by BA physics teacher Wendy Stallings. The original team of five worked hard to win the state competition its first year, going on to compete in the 2014 VEX Robotics World Championship. The team has since grown to more than 40 students and has earned several world and state championship titles year after year.
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.
