    US Fall Play Our upper school presents a straight show each fall. Auditions will be held during the first two weeks of school. Both actors as well as technical support will be sought. 

    US Spring Musical Our upper school musical is presented at the end of April. Rehearsals will run throughout second semester. Auditions for this show will be held in December prior to Christmas break.

    US Academy Dancers Auditions are open to all rising 9th–12th grade girls. There is an intense workout and practice commitment required of this group. Although participation in our dance classes is encouraged, girls will NOT be required to be in the BA dance classes in order to audition for Academy Dancers.

    US Academy Singers The Academy Singers is a vocal ensemble that meets as a class for the entire school year with the goal of performing, as well as recording a professional quality CD. Students are expected to market and sell CDs of their recording as a part of the class. Audition criteria include sight-reading, part-singing, solo performance and stage presence.

    Auditions are held mid-May for the following year.

    There are two parts to the audition:

    • Sight-Reading—Students will be asked to clap a short rhythm and to sight-read a short melody, using any neutral syllable (na,na,na) solfege (do re mi fa) or numbers (1, 2, 3). obby beginning May 1. Sight-reading auditions will be recorded for reference. Examples of sight-reading exercises may be found on the Academy Singer website under the AUDITION tab: beginning May 1.
    • Solo Performance and Stage Presence & Part-Singing—Part two of the audition will be held in the chorus during mid-May. Students are asked to prepare 30 seconds of a song in any style without accompaniment or tracks. Song choice should allow for the student to demonstrate strength of range and vocal quality, and students should deliver the song with a confident and poised stage presence. It is always a good idea to select a song that has a discernable melody that does not heavily depend on an instrumental track since the solos will be sung a cappella.

    In addition to the solo audition, students will be asked to sing a harmony part (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone or bass) of a short musical excerpt. Good intonation (pitch) is an important part of this criterion. No preparation is necessary, these parts will be taught as a part of the audition. Students are required to stay for the entire audition. 

    US Speech (Forensics) – no audition required
    Speech (Forensics)is an extra-curricular activity that allows students to showcase their speaking and acting skills in a competitive arena. Categories include Humorous Interpretation, Dramatic Interpretation, Original Oratory, Prose and Poetry. No audition is required for participation.

    US Jazz Band Our Upper School Jazz Ensemble meets as a class during the entire school year. Brass and woodwind students must also be in the concert band in order to participate in the Jazz Ensemble. Exceptions are made only for academic scheduling concerns. Guitarists, pianists and drummers who do not play a concert band instrument can participate in jazz band only. Our jazz ensemble is a traditional jazz band covering all of the major jazz styles (swing, latin, be-bop, fusion, etc.) with an emphasis on the theory and skills required for jazz improvisation. Auditions will be held mid-May for the following year. 

    US Contemporary Music Ensemble/Rock Band This versatile group plays current pop music, classic rock, and contemporary Christian music and serves instrumentalists who play drums, keyboards, bass, and guitar. This group also meets as a class for the entire year. Auditions will be held mid-May for the following year.

  • Short-term Distance Learning


    In the 2021-2022 school year, our ViewBoards will allow us to offer short-term, distance learning for students who require extended absences due to illness. Due to the time and resources needed for students to effectively participate in distance learning, Brentwood Academy will be returning to the expectation that all students be on campus for in-person learning. The protocol for requesting distance learning for an extended illness is as follows:

    1. After a student has been absent due to illness for two days, the parent should contact Dan Wilkerson (upper school) or Kim Elliott (middle school) to request distance learning.
      • Please note that a one-or-two-day absence for any reason will require students to make up work as normal without distance learning via Teams. 
    1. A call to Dan Wilkerson or Kim Elliott will be required by 1:00 PM for distance learning to begin the following day.
    2. Once the request has been granted, the student’s teachers will be notified by the division head.
    3. The student will receive the needed resources via Veracross or @baeagles email and will be granted access to Teams video conference for instructional time.
    4. The division head will stay in contact with parents to determine the duration of distance learning.
    5. A doctor’s note will be required for approved distance learning.

  • Summer Math

    Without practice, students are at risk of losing new mathematical knowledge and weakening basic skills. With consistent practice over the summer months, students do not require as much review and are able to better connect new concepts with previously learned material.

    Summer math work is required for rising 6th and 7th graders; Students should work through the summer skills sharpener workbook. This workbook provides students with an opportunity to reinforce math concepts learned through the previous school year. We recommend students work three to four times a week in their workbook throughout the summer. Students will bring completed workbooks to math class at the beginning of the school year. The workbook is $18; you may order by clicking the link below. 

    For any questions concerning summer math work, please contact the following faculty members. 

    6th Grade Chair/Math Teacher: Jennifer Ann Clark,

    7th Math Teacher: Mandy Allender,

    Math Chair: Bonnie Hall,

    While, at this time, Brentwood Academy does not require summer work for rising grades 8-11, we do highly recommend that students work practice problems for at least 30 minutes a week. Below are some resources that we would recommend to help students sharpen their skills over the summer. 

  • Summer Reading Enrichment for Upper School Students

    During the month of July and early August, Mr. Lyle Husband will offer a weeklong summer reading session for each upper school grade level. During this time, the students and Mr. Husband will read aloud the required summer reading book and discuss it intensively.

    As you may know, students will be expected to demonstrate knowledge of summer reading texts in a variety of ways during August and September. Several assessments early in the school year are tied to summer reading, and the work we do will be a very valuable step toward a great start of the school year. This enrichment program is free, open to anyone, organized by grade level, and has the potential to positively impact the students’ first quarter averages.

    During this time together, students will read aloud the required text, focusing on reading speed, accuracy, phrasing, and expression. Students will also learn valuable reading strategies and complete graphic organizers to aid the understanding of character analysis and important themes. In short, students who take advantage of this opportunity will be more prepared and confident as they begin school in August.

    Each student needs to bring the required summer reading book and pens and pencils. All meetings will be in Mr. Husband's classroom in the Freshmen Hall, room 205.
