Curt Masters was named headmaster of Brentwood Academy in 2000 as founding Headmaster Bill Brown was named headmaster emeritus.
Masters joined the school just as a new middle school campus opened and embarked on a master plan in 2009 for the campus, which sit along Grannie White Pike. In 2010, the school embarked on publishing “Brentwood at Forty Years.”
Masters recently took time to reflect on the school’s past and its future.
What is it that has allowed Brentwood Academy to sustain its reputation as a private, college preparatory school in this growing community over the past five decades?
Brentwood Academy has been sustained over the 50 years since its inception by faithful and generous involvement and participation by parents, students, alumni and the surrounding community as we work to live out the mission and ministry of BA, nurturing and challenging each whole person — body, mind, and spirit — to the glory of God.
Over the years, students have flourished in an environment built on strong personal relationships. Our faculty and parent community help students discover and develop their gifts and talents while helping them grow in their confidence and sense of personal responsibility.
We have remained committed to providing exceptional opportunities for intellectual, physical and spiritual growth while encouraging students to know Christ personally and to see all their efforts in the context of his eternal purposes.
Can you share your hope for the next 50 years as you look forward to nearly 20 years as headmaster?
Brentwood Academy’s hope for the future is in being a community of committed people who are faithful with every opportunity to care for each whole person. The rich learning in and out of the classroom that involves knowledge, skills and values is accompanied by a growing awareness of God’s claim on our lives, and our responsibility to be good stewards of our intellect, our relationships, and our resources.
