Greetings Brent Families,

I want to take a moment to thank those who came to Brent this week to clear accounts, return library materials, and collect official school records. This was possible in large part due to your cooperation in helping to avoid the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Thank you!

If you were not able to clear your accounts, collect your child’s personal belongings, or collect school records, you may still do so in the coming weeks. Offices handling clearances will remain open throughout the summer in preparation for next school year.

Next Semester:
I want to again assure you that there will be no tuition increase for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be our third year without an increase even though we anticipate a ten to fifteen percent decline in enrollment. This is a challenging time for many families and institutions. We appreciate everyone’s patience and perseverance.

We are continuing to process enrollment for next school year. Thank you to everyone who has already completed the re-enrollment process or withdrawn. To withdraw, either visit the Registrar’s Office or email registrar@brent.edu.ph

The Reservation and Re-enrollment Form is posted on our website. Our school cashier is also now available on campus to assist you in processing payments. You may settle the reservation fee for the 2020-2021 at the school cashier’s office or through a bank deposit or bank transfer.

Here is a list of Brent Manila’s dollar and peso bank account details for your reference. If you choose to make a bank transfer payment for reserving a slot for the next year, please email a scanned copy or photo of the Reservation and Re-enrolment Form together with the proof of payment (via direct deposit or online payment) to billingsection@brent.edu.ph. Our Accounting Office will then issue an official receipt.

The first day of classes will be Monday August 24. This will be the start date whether we meet face-to-face or are required to start online. The newest revision of the 2020-2021 school calendar is posted on our website. If we need to start online before moving to face-to-face, teachers will be prepared to deliver the first week of instruction without the need for students to pick up any materials.

Faculty will arrive by August 9 to provide sufficient time for class preparation and to allow for potential travel restrictions or quarantine requirements. Similarly, we request families to plan on being in the Philippines by August 9 in case there is a need to self isolate or other restrictions in place that may interfere with instruction.

With two and a half months before the start of school a lot can change, and we pray it is for the better. Rest assured our students will continue receiving a high quality education this coming fall.

Thank you once again for being such an amazing community. I look forward to a time in the future when I can thank you in person.

Have a safe and healthy summer break!
