WELCOME TO BRAC

The Blanco River Academy is a nonprofit 501(c)3, independent fifth through eighth grade middle school founded on the principles of academic rigor and whole child development. The path to academic rigor is achieved through diverse, individualized, evidence-based teaching and learning approaches in a technologically-forward classroom.

The development of the whole child focus is achieved through opportunities for physical and emotional development alongside the academic curriculum.

Our Environmental Stewardship designation means that we aim to educate and empower students to embrace an environmentally healthy, socially just and economically viable lifestyle.

We understand that there has been frustration with COVID protocols in Wimberley schools this year.  We are a science-focused school and require our students and faculty to wear masks indoors.

We are full in our 5th and 6th grade classes for the 2021-2022 school year.  However, we do accept applications for a waitlist AND we have a few limited spots in 7th & 8th grades.  Please call or email us TODAY to tell us about your child and schedule a tour.

OUR ACADEMIC PHILOSOPHY

Blanco River Academy specializes in individualized and differentiated educational study opportunities rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.  Our teaching philosophy helps the students to grow into their full potential. 

 

Faculty and staff of the Blanco River Academy believe strongly in the pursuit of academic excellence. Equally important is the emphasis on nurturing character and interpersonal growth, as well as a focus on community and social responsibility -- both through service and through an intentional effort to understand other ways of thinking, doing, and believing. By utilizing the resources of Wimberley and our larger community, BRAc students have multiple hands-on learning opportunities to develop a deep appreciation for their environment.

SOCIAL JUSTICE AND ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

Blanco River Academy believes schools have a special role and responsibility in confronting the challenges of climate change, environmental stewardship, and social injustice. BRAc is dedicated to addressing these issues both inside and outside the classroom. We engage our students in implementing innovative solutions that build a healthier, more sustainable school and city.  We also encourage students to understand the poverty and social injustice problems in our society today by engaging them in lively discussions, works projects, and academic readings.  

BRAc students are well-rounded, critical thinkers, creative in their endeavors, and good stewards of their environment.  We teach acceptance of all individuals and the importance of caring for our earth. 

 

We offer a wide variety of special subjects and after school options to ensure that our students have ample opportunity to grow in their middle school years in mind, body and spirit.
