Brentwood College School
Brentwood College School provides a modern, West Coast learning experience for globally minded students who embrace the values of grit and joy.
Brentwood is a progressive, co-educational boarding school for Grades 9 to 12 located on a spectacular oceanfront campus on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. At Brentwood, student choice is a unique part of our culture and a deciding factor in who attends the School. It’s why this place is so special. We believe when students truly choose to be here, and they’re surrounded by a family of like-minded friends and supporters, they can be anything. This philosophy creates a warm, friendly, and passionate community of students from over 40 countries around the world who gain the independence and skills necessary to succeed in the post-secondary world.
Since 1923, we have worked diligently to establish a modern, transformative place of learning and leadership, mirroring the educational experience of a small college rather than a traditional boarding school. Prospective students are drawn to our school’s innovative tripartite approach to academics, arts, and athletics; as well as our nurturing boarding environment and strong university preparatory programs. Our unique tripartite scheduling creates unrivalled opportunities for student discovery and growth. Not only is Brentwood a remarkable place to make lifelong friends while gaining a world-class education, Brentwood truly is where students choose to be.

We believe when students truly choose to be here, and they are surrounded by a family of like-minded friends and supporters, they can be anything.
