Academics

As a university preparatory school, the pursuit of academic excellence is one of our school’s fundamental aims. We strive to help students reach levels of achievement that truly reflect their ability, attitude, and effort.

To create ideal learning conditions, we provide students with the required technology, small class sizes, and low student-teacher ratios. When it is advantageous, we also group students by ability. Our academic curriculum drives our prep school mandate and also meets the prescribed BC (British Columbia) provincial learning outcomes.

Brentwood has a long tradition of seeking new and innovative ways to enhance learning for each individual student. Our new Personalized Enrichment Program allows qualified students to access courses outside of our regular curricula by incorporating blended learning using external educational partners.

Our programs are shaped to prepare Brentwood graduates for post-secondary education and careers in a rapidly changing global workplace. We also expand our students’ academic experiences via online courses from universities such as Stanford.

Skill development through problem-solving, collaborative projects, and technology integration feature strongly as pedagogical goals. Academics at our school establish a love of learning that extends well beyond our school gates.

For two years, I’ve grown with the brightest young philosophers, scientists, artists, and Olympians that I would not have met without Brentwood.  My once small pond has opened to reveal a mighty ocean. - Alumni Zhi-Yao Chen '13
