Brentwood is a co-educational boarding school for Grades 9 to 12. Prospective students are drawn to our school’s innovative approach, university preparatory programs, and spectacular oceanfront setting.

Since 1923, we have worked diligently to establish a transformative place of learning and leadership, mirroring the educational experience of a small college rather than a traditional boarding school. Our primary purpose is to help students gain the independence and skills necessary to succeed in the post-secondary world while studying in a safe, caring, and nurturing environment.

Today, Brentwood stands as a model of progressive, west-coast boarding. Our school is a remarkable place to meet lifelong friends while gaining a world-class education. We welcome visitors and invite you to share in the Brentwood experience.

Campus Life

Community, challenge, opportunity, and support: these are words Brentonians use to describe life at Brentwood. They also talk about making friends for life.

Ask prospective students about the thought of going to class on Saturday morning: the response is likely to be negative. Ask Brentwood students about finishing academic classes by 1:15pm every day, and having afternoons free for athletics and the arts: their response is positive. Brentwood's schedule is unique and few Brentonians would change it. They like Brentwood's distinctive rhythm, a product of our tripartite programme.

Student Life

Brentwood College School is home away from home for 398 boarders and 113 local day students. Although over 30 countries are represented on campus, most Brentwood students hail from Western and Northern Canada, and the American Pacific Northwest. A significant number are ex-patriate Canadians whose parents are working overseas.

In this international mix, Brentonians have grown up in many cultures. From the gentle slopes of the Napa Valley to the blazing desert of the Gulf States, they come from three continents, tropical and arctic climates, and almost every time zone. While all students speak and study in English, a student's first language may be Russian or Mandarin, Spanish or Japanese, Turkish or Thai. Imagine the possibilities for growth within such a diverse student community.
