Hands on learning


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.

Extracurricular Activities


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.


College Counseling

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.

Get out There


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.
