On the first day of the 2019-2020 school year, our kids got a chance to plant seedlings for our school aquaponics system. BRAc takes pride in always teaching students about how to live as good stewards of our planet, by practicing a sustainable lifestyle. Hands-on learning in our aquaponics lab is the first step in students understanding how food is grown and what it takes to produce food for a population.
Graduation 2019 was a glorious celebration of our amazing 8th Grade graduates, Charlie McNabb and Anna Berry. We are so proud of the young people that they have both developed into and look forward to watching
their bright futures unfold. Charlie will be attending Wimberley High School and Anna will be attending St. Andrew's Episcopal School of Austin.

It's the first day of school! These happy 6th, 7th and 8th graders are fired up and ready to learn, lead, think, explore, create, get out in the community and be good humans! We know they'll have a great year and are so excited to welcome them and all of our fantastic faculty members back. 2018-2019 is going to be amazing at Blanco River Academy!
What an amazing day we had at Fischer Hall this year! Fantastic music, great food and fine hill country breezes kept us going all day long. The kids even enjoyed a hula hoop contest! Watch our Facebook page for info about next year's festival, already being planned!
We couldn't do it without our generous sponsors, so we'd love for you to show them your support in the community!
