For College Reps

Dear College Representatives,

Greetings from Brentwood Academy! We are grateful for your interest in our students and our school and look forward to hosting you this calendar year. Having served on the college admissions side, we know your time is valuable, and we are committed to doing our best to accommodate you in your travels through the Nashville area.

Our students are anxious to hear about the exciting opportunities your institution can afford them. From admissions trends and majors to building projects and extracurricular activities, the information you share is invaluable. It is because of you that we can be of better service to our students, and for this reason among many others, we value the chance to build and develop relationships with you. We wish you safe travels as you hit the road, and please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

Shelley Miller, Director of College Counseling

Courtney Jones, Associate Director of College Counseling
