Charles Henry Brent, our school’s founder, was born in Canada in 1862. After his ordination in the Anglican Church of Canada, he moved to the United States and in 1901 was elected Missionary Bishop of the Philippines for the Protestant Episcopal Church.
The Bishop founded Brent School Baguio in 1909. Originally a boarding school for the sons of American families stationed in the Philippines, more than one hundred years later the original Brent School in Baguio is currently a co–educational boarding and day school with an international student population.
In 1984, the Board of Trustees of Brent School established Brent International School Manila in Pasig, Metro Manila. This second Brent school assumed the traditions, the style, and the educational system of its mother school and graduated its first twelve students in 1986. In 1994, the Board of Trustees accepted an invitation from the Chairman of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority to open a third Brent school in Subic for children of foreign investors and those of the local community. In 1997 the three schools were incorporated separately, and each now has its own Board of Trustees under the Corporation.
