Mission Statement:

Brentwood Academy is a co-educational, independent, college-preparatory school dedicated to the nurturing and challenging of the whole person--body, mind and spirit--to the glory of God.

Philosophy/Belief Statement: Brentwood Academy believes that in order to develop each whole person, we must not only educate young people for college, but also for life. We believe this is done by ensuring that strong academics, challenging athletics, and creative fine arts prosper together in an environment where God is honored in every aspect of training and learning. Brentwood Academy believes and teaches: • That the Bible is the inspired infallible authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21); • That, as the Bible clearly teaches, we are all sinful by nature, and that both our nature and our choices have resulted in our need for forgiveness and transformation which we are not able to provide ourselves, leaving each of us in need of a Savior (Romans 3: 9,10; Romans 3:23); • That the only salvation is through faith in Christ, who is The way, The truth, and The life (John 3:16-18, 5:24; Romans 3:24, 5:8-11; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5); That God’s power is at work in and through believers, through the continued work of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30).
School History: The charter of Brentwood Academy was signed on November 20, 1969. The Board of Trustees attending the first meeting were Joe M. Rodgers, James E. French, William C. Cate, Jr., Jack A. Butler, Morris Werthan II, J. Richard Cole, Randall N. Yearwood, and William B. Brown, Jr. Members unable to attend were Mrs. H. Rodes Hart, Tom P. Kennedy, Jr., H. Lynn Greer, and Miller Kimbrough. In December, 1969, Tom P. Kennedy, Jr. offered the school ten acres of land on Granny White Pike. The offer was accepted and an option was obtained on 20 additional acres. The first building, containing four classrooms, a science laboratory, boys’ and girls’ dressing rooms, administrative offices, and a commons area, was completed in August, 1970. The first classes were held on September 8, 1970. The charter students selected the eagle mascot and the red, white, and blue school colors.
