Upper Elementary - 8th grade and
BRAc Hybrid High School and Part-Time Academy

At Blanco River Academy (a 501c3 Environmental Stewardship school), we're not just a school - we're family, dedicated to fostering curiosity, creativity, and a lifelong love of learning and of the out of doors. Our commitment to sustainability and watershed protection is woven into every aspect of our curriculum and campus life. Our expert educators provide personalized attention, inspiring students to reach their full potential.


Our Approach

Nestled in the heart of Wimberley and adjacent to the beloved Blue Hole Park, our campus offers a unique learning experience surrounded by the natural beauty of the Cypress Creek and Blanco River. From interactive outdoor lessons to enriching field/class trips, our students thrive in an environment that nurtures both mind and body.


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.


Parent of an Upper Elementary Student

We love that our son experiences a school curriculum intertwined with nature at Blanco River Academy. From an early age, BRAC instills in students a profound sense of responsibility towards our environment and our shared planet. With a unique approach, and utilizing Blue Hole as a classroom, it serves as a hub for experiential learning.  Every day, our child is nurtured with a stewardship mindset, fostering a deep love for learning within our vibrant surroundings. BRAC continuously engages students and parents alike, reminding us of the countless reasons we cherish our life in Wimberley. I’m so very grateful for a school that is cultivating a generation of mindful stewards and lifelong learners.
