Brandon Academy Private School, or simply "Brandon Academy" or "BA," is a coeducational private day school located on a 10-acre (40,000 m2) campus on Limona Road in Brandon, Florida that serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.[1]

There are four relatively small buildings that make up the school: The elementary school building, the office building, the middle school building, and the media center (commonly referred to as "the new building," as it was built only a few years ago).[1] The school teaches all basic classes, as well as computers, art, and Spanish to elementary school students, and offers all basic classes as well as a small variety of electives to middle school students.

In the school year of 2016 there will be a private IB high school built in the back lot.[1] Also, in 2016, a new classroom building and new gymnasium opened on the campus.

The school colors are white and Navy Blue.[1] The school mascot is the scorpion.[1]

The school is currently owned by Robert Rudolph, who took over from Terry Curry.[2]
