How Brentwood College School sees itself

The school administration answered our questions

Who are you, as a school?

"Located on a spectacular oceanfront campus on Vancouver Island in BC, Canada, Brentwood is a progressive, co-ed boarding school for Grades 9 to 12 well suited to globally-minded students who embrace our values of grit and joy. Student choice is a unique part of our culture and a deciding factor in who attends the School. This creates a supportive community of students from over 50 countries who gain the independence and skills to succeed in the post-secondary world."

  • Boarding is at the heart of the Brentwood experience, building relationships and connections.
  • Choice is a theme embedded in the philosophy underpinning our enrolment, boarding, and courses.

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"Brentwood is a unique place of learning that gives students the choices and opportunities they need to discover their passions. We harness the power of a boarding environment to build strong relationships throughout our fully engaged, authentic, and inclusive community. Choice plays a large part in a student’s journey at Brentwood. Choice is a theme embedded in the philosophy underpinning our enrolment process, boarding culture, course options, and post-secondary opportunities."

To your knowledge, why do families choose your school over others?

"At the core of the Brentwood philosophy is how we provide our students with meaningful opportunities to learn and grow in academics, arts, and athletics. This is our Tripartite Program—balanced, intentional, and designed to support both student success and student wellness. Our evidence-based approach to learning, as expressed in the Brentwood timetable, offers academic classes in the morning—all morning—followed by alternating afternoons of arts and athletics."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

"We recognize the importance of having support structures in place for all aspects of student life. Facilities and programs to support students’ mental and physical wellness can be found in all corners of the campus as well as throughout the school calendar. We continually strive to help our students understand and find solutions to the challenges they face."

What might families find surprising about your school?

"One in four students at Brentwood are here wholly or in part thanks to financial aid. That surprises families quite often."
