MIDDLE SCHOOL DIRECTOR

JENNY CRETIN

"What a privilege it is to walk side-by-side with middle school students and parents in these exciting years of academic, athletic, social, and spiritual development! As Middle School Director, my goal for our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Brentwood Academy is that they each learn, fail, and grow in a setting where they are loved and known while constantly being reminded that they are uniquely made with immeasurable value by our Creator."

What is it like to be a Brentwood Academy middle school student?

The answer can be found on the faces of students engaged in all aspects of student life—learning both inside and outside the classrooms, engaging in vibrant student traditions, participating in athletic events, building relationships in advisory groups, worshiping at chapel, and enjoying varied fine arts opportunities across BA.

FINE ARTS

In middle school, the arts are built into Exploratories, that every student experiences, and offered as yearly elective choices including band, chorus, drama, visual art, and speech. Students may continue to pursue the arts outside of the classroom by auditioning for Academy Juniors and the middle school theatrical production.

ATHLETICS

Brentwood Academy’s athletic program builds character by teaching the value of committing to a goal, practicing personal discipline, and prioritizing team contribution over individual roles. All students participate in team sports or physical education classes each day as part of BA's mission to nurture and challenge each whole person.

CHRISTIAN LIFE


The driving purpose of the middle school Christian Life department is to guide students toward a proper reckoning of our Creator and His call on our lives to serve Him and love others. To help students down that path, we’ve built an experience where students can encounter God’s word and His heart for them.

CHRISTIAN LIFE

Every morning in their first block classes, students dive into the stories of Scripture. Over the course of the school year, students will read the entire Action Bible; this habit helps fortify and expand their biblical literacy.

Each grade has a unique Bible curriculum designed to help them grow in their faith and better grasp biblical truth. Middle school students also gather weekly to participate in chapel.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT 

Student Academic Support is structured by team members responsible for monitoring the academic progress of each student and promoting effective communication between students, grade chairs, faculty, and parents. The department empowers students to take ownership of their academic progress and make appropriate decisions toward their academic goals.

Specialized study halls in middle school promote a philosophy of individual responsibility and encourage each student to value and contribute to his or her educational experience. Students develop the skills needed to reach academic and individual goals, become leaders within the school community, and pursue successful and productive lives grounded in Christian values.
