New Beginnings

Sep 17, '12

The dust is settling. Our 176 new students are easing into their lives at Brentwood with its routines and expectations. They have joined our returning students to make us a school of 458 students; perhaps the largest boarding population in Canada! To top it off, the sun is still shining brightly over our oceanfront campus; life is very...

Look Who’s Coming!

Jul 30, '12

170 new students will be joining our school this fall and the school will open with just over 450 students. Our population remains roughly 70% Canadian and 10% American, while 20% will consist of students from almost 40 different countries around the world. It is a marvelous time of year as we eagerly wait the 2012-2013 school year. While...

133 Graduates of 2012

May 30, '12

This is the largest graduating class in Brentwood’s history. It is also one of the most impressive we have ever had. Not only have they already been offered over 360 places in nearly 100 universities in 8 countries, but they have done so while still keeping their feet firmly planted on the ground here at Brentwood. Their overall academic average...

Signs of Spring

Apr 18, '12

Spring becomes evident in various ways around this globe. In some communities, it is the first break in the ice pack on the northern rivers. Perhaps it is the subtle change in shape of the cumulus clouds or the tentative emergence of crocuses and daffodils. Or maybe it is as simple as the way people dress; short-sleeved shirts beckon the assault...

Northern Exposure

Mar 29, '12

Many of our students come from the northern regions of this vast country. Communities scattered across northern regions of our western provinces are well represented at Brentwood College. Further north still, we currently have students from Mayo, Yellowknife, Anchorage, Juneau and Whitehorse; they bring a great perspective to our school and this...

Hunger Games

Mar 20, '12

Students seeking an independent school education will often visit many schools before making a decision. The choices are as varied as one can imagine. The reasons for choosing a particular school are also diverse. However, it might be fair to say that there are two key factors contributing to students looking at independent education...

Canucks

Mar 01, '12

Most of our student body is Canadian (70%) and most of our Canadian students are from British Columbia. A large portion of these British Columbians are hockey fans and they overwhelmingly support the professional team, the Vancouver Canucks. At a boarding school, this causes some interesting banter as the trading deadline passes and the playoffs...

Boarding School

Feb 07, '12

Why would I work at a boarding school? For many the term ‘Boarding School’ conjures up images of Harry Potter movies, drafty British-styled buildings, ancient staff members sporting long black cloaks and throngs of naughty teenagers begrudgingly sent away to be confined in wretched reformatories.  How could anyone send their kids away to a...

Contagion

Jan 23, '12

It can sometimes be hard to get motivated in our day-to-day lives.  For many, it is difficult to muster up the energy to be involved in new activities.  It is easy to fall into a routine (perhaps even a rut) and settle into the familiarity of a ‘comfort zone’.

Fortunately, whether you are a student or a staff member, this is...

Other Duties as Assigned

Jan 03, '12

Working at a boarding school is demanding. No doubt about it, it is an exhausting, all-encompassing vocation. Take a Houseparent for example: they wake up early each school day so that they can get 50 students ready for classes. They teach during the academic morning and then coach or teach most afternoons; in the evening they help monitor the...
