Veterans Center for Recreation and Education (VCRE)
Brentwood School has a more than 30 year strategic partnership with the West Los Angeles (WLA) VA, and is unique in that we can immediately offer veterans and their families at the WLA VA campus substantial veteran-centric opportunities funded by Brentwood School.
