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