Hunger Games

Students at Brentwood College are from 40 countries around the world

Students seeking an independent school education will often visit many schools before making a decision.  The choices are as varied as one can imagine.  The reasons for choosing a particular school are also diverse.  However, it might be fair to say that there are two key factors contributing to students looking at independent education options:

  1. Their current situation. Often students are the victims of under-funded school systems and they are seeking something more out of their education.
  2. Independent education offers a competitive edge. Many understand that without a solid academic foundation, it will be harder to thrive in the first few years of university. Seeking and independent education is seen as a way to get a ‘leg up’ in terms of post-secondary choice and success.

While the real world is no ‘Panem’, nor is British Columbia anything like ‘District 12’, but like it or not, it is a competitive world out there: it’s survival of the fittest in many ways. At Brentwood, our students are prepared for this challenge. Not only are 100% of our graduates accepted to universities around the world, they tend to thrive there.

Brentwood College School offers a unique program, campus and approach to education.  Students are drawn to the modern facilities and well-rounded curriculum, but beneath the bricks and mortar one will find teachers (and fellow students) who care: there is a culture of dedication, enthusiasm and commitment: students hungry to learn taught by equally passionate teachers. In many ways, this is all that students anywhere really need to find success.
