Mission and values
Mission and values

Mission: The Brentwood family opens minds and hearts for life. The Brentwood College is considered to be a school of heart that becomes a family for every student and stays with children for life, and gives everyone the opportunity to be open-minded.

  1. Such values as excellence, integrity, and empathy are vitally important and highly valued at Brentwood.
  2. Grit and Joy
  3. Hard work, industry, and ‘sticktuitiveness’ — GRIT — leads to happiness, positive experience, and community — JOY. Furthermore, unlike marks or championships, GRIT is mostly internally measured and JOY is rarely achieved in front of a computer screen or in isolation — it is mostly a communal experience.
