MIDDLE SCHOOL DIRECTOR
"What a privilege it is to walk side-by-side with middle school students and parents in these exciting years of academic, athletic, social, and spiritual development! As Middle School Director, my goal for our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Brentwood Academy is that they each learn, fail, and grow in a setting where they are loved and known while constantly being reminded that they are uniquely made with immeasurable value by our Creator."
What is it like to be a Brentwood Academy middle school 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.
OPPORTUNITIES AT BA
We understand that campus life is an important part of every student's experience. At Brentwood Academy, we foster opportunities for students to connect, develop leadership capacity, and pursue their giftings and talents. We intentionally build a culture, community, and traditions that enrich the student life experience in middle school.
In middle school, the arts are built into Exploratories, that every student experiences. The arts are also offered as yearly elective choices including band, chorus, drama, visual art, and speech. Students also may pursue the arts at Brentwood Academy outside of the classroom by auditioning for Academy Juniors and the middle school theatrical production.
Brentwood Academy’s athletic program builds character by teaching the value of committing to a goal, practicing personal discipline, and prioritizing team contribution over individual roles. All students participate in team sports or physical education classes each day as part of BA's mission to nurture and challenge each whole person.
Every morning in their first block classes, students dive into the stories of Scripture. Over the course of the school year, students will read the entire Action Bible; this habit helps fortify and expand their biblical literacy.
Each grade has a unique Bible curriculum designed to help them grow in their faith and better grasp biblical truth: sixth graders dive into The Attributes of God; seventh graders step into The Story of the Bible; and eighth graders study The Story of Jesus.
Every middle school grade has the opportunity to travel off campus in the spring for team building and fun.
