The Brentwood Difference

Monday, July 07, 2014 - By: Clayton Johnston

As we gently roll into summer, I can reflect with great satisfaction on what has been a very busy year in Admissions. After spending a dizzying 3 months on the road visiting 12 countries and countless communities (and telling anyone willing to listen about our amazing school!) I am giddy with excitement about the student body that will convene on this campus in September. It will easily be the largest and the most diverse school in our long and storied history.

Among other things, one of the differentiators that make Brentwood so special is that our boarders have a ‘Canadian boarding experience’. It sounds logical – seeing how we are a boarding school in Canada – but it is rarer than you may think. At Brentwood, if we count the expatriate population, our student population is well over 80% Canadian. As well as benefiting from a truly Canadian boarding experience, our students will also prosper from the diversity of our International population. We are a school representing 31 nations. Can you imagine the educational opportunities this poses on so many levels?

From where, exactly, will our students be coming in September?
