Student Life

What is it like to be a Brentwood Academy student?

The answer can be found on the faces of students engaged in all aspects of student life—learning both inside and outside the classrooms, visiting with friends in the hallways and around the campus, participating in athletic events as a team member or fan, sharing small and large group devotions and Bible study, or enjoying the varied fine arts opportunities.

Student Leadership Team

The Upper School SLT is a coed group of students from the 9th-12th grades. The SLT’s mission is to “serve as role models who live out the mission of the school, create leadership opportunities for others within the school, and facilitate action based on needs shared by the faculty and students.” The Student Leadership Team assists in leadership in other areas of the school, such as the Big Brother/Big Sister program and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Ten-twelve 8th grade students are elected during the spring of the 7th grade year to serve on the Middle School SLT.
