Day 1 – Innovation in the Classroom

Please consider a donation that will continue to impact innovation in the classroom. Your gift matters, please pledge or donate today.

Brentwood Academy has become the first high school in the Nashville area, and only the second in the state, to begin using SynDaver's second-generation Anatomy Model, a full-sized, head-to-toe synthetic human, to provide students with hands-on learning opportunities for anatomy and pre-med education. Thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor, students in all levels of science classes will benefit from this unique addition.

Day 2 - Attracting and Retaining Excellent Faculty

Please consider a donation that will continue to enable BA to attract and retain excellent faculty members like Paul Battaglia. Your gift matters; please pledge or donate today.

Meet Paul Battaglia, the newest addition to Brentwood Academy's math department. Mr. Battaglia is not only an AP Calculus and Statistics teacher, but also co-author of the first AP Calculus textbook written specifically for high school students. "Calculus for AP," published in 2015, was named the Most Promising New Textbook Award by the Textbook and Academic Authors Association. Mr. Battaglia, who has also co-authored two additional Pre-Calculus textbooks, came to BA from New Jersey in August with his wife and four children. They have quickly become a part of the BA family.

Day 3 - Professional Development for Faculty

Just this year, three faculty members pursued and and earned their doctoral degrees, thanks to the ongoing financial support of our faculty continuing education program. Professional development for faculty not only enhances their ability to deliver the mission, but also helps retain high caliber teachers like Dr. Dan Wilkerson, Dr. Steve Widmaier, and Dr. Molly Martin.

Dr. Wilkerson and Dr. Martin graduated from Lipscomb University with their doctorates of education (Ed.D.) in Learning Organizations and Strategic Change. Both teach Spanish in our World Languages department. Dr. Wilkerson also helps lead the middle school Student Leadership Team. Next year, Dr. Martin will serve as the World Languages department chair. Dr. Widmaier earned a doctorate of ministry from Fuller Seminary. He teaches World Religion.

Day 4 - Student Academic Support

Every week, three nights a week, in the junior hallway you will find upper school students working on their CORE exercises—strengthening their academic muscles. E3 (Evening Education Empowerment) is a program developed by Dr. Rene’ Rochester, director of student academic support, who has built a tutoring team of faculty and local university graduate students, two of whom are BA alumni.

The team meets with students, at no charge, to help them process information and learn by strengthening their CORE:
  • Collect your tools and thoughts
  • Organize your thoughts and materials
  • Rehearse drills and practice concepts learned
  • Evaluate and assess the student progress each session
E3 is open to all upper school students who can come for extra help with a particular assignment or on a more regular basis to strengthen their learning and study skills.

Day 5 - Student Leadership

Brentwood Academy offers a broad range of student leadership training opportunities, including participation in programs like Summit Ministries (VIDEO above).

Thanks to the ongoing support of our Annual Fund, we are able to offer programs that teach personal responsibility, confidence with humility, time management, professionalism, and interpersonal relationship skills:
  • Student Leadership Team (school culture)
  • Student Ambassadors (community and admission activities)
  • BA Liaisons (alumni, trustees, parent volunteers)
  • Youth in Government
  • Model UN
  • Leadership Brentwood
  • Worship and Chapel Leadership
  • Service Projects

Please consider supporting the BA Annual Fund so that we can continue to equip our students with leadership skills.
