ABOUT BLANCO RIVER ACADEMY
Blanco River Academy is a non-profit, independent school focused on allowing children to grow into who they are: well-rounded, well-founded, children of character! Giving students individualized and differentiated educational opportunities rather than a one-size-fits-all approach 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.
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.
In the fall of 2014, Blanco River Academy was organized and created by 6th grade parents looking for a small, experiential-based middle school opportunity.
BRAc graduated its charter class of 8th graders in June 2017, and they matriculated to 3 area high schools. Each student has achieved academic, social, and athletic success in their individual endeavors. The foundation that BRAc gave them, prepared them to be the leaders and thinkers that they have become today.
