Arts Competition #1: Quadruple the Canvas

Sep 29, '14

Already immersed in countless art projects, Brentwood artists could not be more busy, yet now is the perfect opportunity to begin the first art competition of the year! Seeking four large, motivational murals to fill the empty walls in the varsity gym, the arts community is called forward to compete for this space and exhibit one of their own pieces. Students are urged to submit sketches and designs of what they believe should be presented on the canvases. A committee will then review these...

Believe it or not, recruitment has begun in earnest for boarding school Admissions folks. It seems the dust has just settled on a new school year and we are off, scouring the globe for potential students for the 2015-16 year. At Brentwood, I never actually think of these trips as ‘recruiting’ trips; I see them as information sharing adventures. As I see it, my job is to convince people to simply have a look at Brentwood, to learn a little about us. The school (more precisely, the student...

About Brentwood

Brentwood is a co-educational boarding school for Grades 9 to 12. Prospective students are drawn to our school’s innovative approach, university preparatory programmes, and spectacular oceanfront setting.

Since 1923, we have worked diligently to establish a transformative place of learning and leadership, mirroring the educational experience of a small college rather than a traditional boarding school. Our primary purpose is to help students gain the independence and skills necessary to succeed in the post-secondary world while studying in a safe, caring, and nurturing environment.

Today, Brentwood stands as a model of progressive, West Coast boarding. Our school is a remarkable place to make lifelong friends while gaining a world-class education. We welcome visitors and invite you to share in the Brentwood experience.

At Brentwood we seek the right fit for both the student and our school. We only accept students who choose to be here; no one is sent to our school. We seek students who value opportunity, embrace challenge, and are prepared to enrich our vibrant, friendly boarding school community.

We find the students best suited to Brentwood's course of studies are those capable of succeeding in a tripartite university-preparatory programme. This means that admission is not solely based on an applicant's academic potential, but also on character and eagerness to participate actively in our arts and athletic programmes. We care about what students accomplish in and out of the classroom. Application to Brentwood is always competitive and we encourage families to start the application process as early as possible.

Choosing Brentwood

We aspire to make your admissions process easy and straightforward. If we can be of any assistance along the way, our Admissions team will be happy to offer support. Please feel free to contact us at any time.

Prospective Students choose Brentwood because we are unique in our approach and devotion to preparing students for the future. We have a strong tradition, a proven track record and a strong residential life programme, all blending seamlessly into our progressive approach to educating our students. 

Boarding

Boarding life is at the very core of the Brentwood experience; we are not simply a school with boarding facilities. 86% of our students and 60% of our teachers live on campus, ensuring a warm and rich residential life.

Our philosophy is that the residential experience is integral to the success of our students. We believe that our boarding program helps each student develop self-discipline, maturity, independence, time management, and leadership skills while surrounded by caring friends and mentors. We enjoy creating a nurturing school culture and invest significant time, energy, and resources into our residential program: the Boarding Life Initiative.

Tripartite Program

The unique Brentwood Tripartite programme is specifically designed for students seeking a variety of exciting academic, athletic and artistic options. Students attend academic classes in the mornings, six days a week. They participate in athletics and arts on alternate afternoons. As all academic classes are held during the morning, students do not have to choose between academic courses, and arts and sports electives, as happens in traditional timetables in most schools.

AcademicsAthleticsArts

Brentwood's unique Tripartite Programme puts academics at the core of a challenging 21st century curriculum, while creating extensive opportunities for all students to participate in athletics and the arts.
