About the School


Located in Mill Bay, Canada on Vancouver Island, Brentwood College is a coeducational preparatory boarding school, for grades 9-12. Brentwood College believes that the student should be challenged, and their mission is to not only challenge the student but they aim to nurture and inspire them to be leaders of integrity, and athletes and artists as a global citizen.

The code at Brentwood: respect for oneself and others and their school and environment, honesty, academic scholarship effort and enthusiasm, commitment, self-discipline, friendliness, responsibility for one’s actions, pursuit of truth, quest for meaning, grace in victory and defeat and more. Founded in 1923 by a Board of Governors, with Cuthbert Holmes the chair, Brentwood College first enrolled fifty boys and faculty of four. The school gained reputation for outstanding athletic and academic results. Brentwood had their first Olympian, Ned Pratt (Class of 1930) and Feral Cabinet Minister, Alastair Gillespie (Class of 1941).

Brentwood College is a modern home away from home, where a student can learn to live with others, where mutual respect and cooperation are a part of their daily living. Each house has what is known as house staff. They are there in the evenings to act as a ‘Big Brother/Big Sister’. Senior students also help mentor the younger students. Each boarding student has a roommate and they share a spacious dorm room. Although the school provides basic furniture, students are able to choose to bring chairs, couches, as well as personal items.

Brentwood College will only accept students who choose to be there. Some boarding schools the students are being sent away from home to a boarding school. The students are usually happier at Brentwood because they have chosen to be there. The school is a warm and friendly place to be, where education should be motivating, exhilarating, stimulating and enjoyable. A Brentwood student will work hard and will also have fun. With many extra curricular activities such as dances, BBQs, off campus trips, a student at Brentwood is always busy.
