BRAc is a PROUD
SILVER SPONSOR of the
BRAc ACADEMIC PHILOSOPHY
At BRAc, we believe in a well-rounded education that goes beyond textbooks. Our innovative curriculum integrates, arts, sciences, and real-world experiences, ensuring students develop essential life skills and a deep sense of community and environmental stewardship. BRAc students are empowered to become confident leaders, critical thinkers, compassionate citizens, and passionate advocates for sustainable living.
Faculty and staff of the Blanco River Academy believe strongly in the pursuit of academic growth with an the emphasis on nurturing character and interpersonal growth. BRAc also strives to foster student growth in the ares of community and social responsibility -- both through service and through an intentional effort to understand other ways of thinking, doing, and believing.
Blanco River Academy believes schools have a special role and responsibility in confronting the challenges of climate change, sustainable living, and social injustice. BRAc is dedicated to addressing these issues both in and out of the classroom. Through hands on projects, students actively engage in environmental conservation. From tending to our on-campus organic vegetable and pollinator garden and participating in Blue Hole Park work projects, to collecting water, soil, and air samples as part of a Citizen Scientist Program funded by a grant from the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences, BRAc students develop a profound connection to the natural world and the responsibility to protect it. With a "Solutionary" focus, we engage our students in implementing innovative solutions that build a healthier, more sustainable school, community, and planet. We also encourage students to understand the associated 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.
