WELCOME TO BRAC
The Blanco River Academy is a nonprofit 501(c)3, independent sixth 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 spiritual, physical, and emotional development alongside the academic curriculum.
Blanco River Academy specializes in individualized and differentiated educational study opportunities rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Our teaching philosophy helps them 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.
Our ACADEMIC FRAMEWORK
Blanco River Academy framework is somewhat analogous to that of a start-up company: fresh and innovative, fluid and creative, forward-thinking and interactive. The Academy avails itself of evidence-based teaching/learning methodologies, promoting responsible use of modern technologies, while meeting and exceeding requisite core subject content.
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.
