All Brentwood Academy students are expected to participate in some form of athletics or physical activity every school day. Any exemption must be approved by the athletic director. The school encourages its students to participate in sports that are offered in season rather than specializing in one sport for the entire year. Transcript credit is one credit per year regardless of the athletic/physical activity. Any students who fail physical education must attend summer school to fulfill their requirement. Students will not be re-admitted to BA until all P.E. requirements have been met.
Middle school athletics/physical activities are held during the school day. All upper school team sports will be held following the school day. All physical education classes will be held during the school day. Athletic and physical education grades are based on attendance, attitude, and participation.
