BRA provides a stimulating, nurturing haven for students whose physical, emotional, and academic needs are better met within a non-traditional learning environment. Our teachers use a conversational approach and workshop learning to create an environment for students who aren’t thriving in a large school setting. Our current enrollment is 40 students and is limited to a maximum of 50. Last year’s BRA graduates went on to attend colleges including Randolph Macon, Radford University, Washington College, and University of Redlands.  The Trick-or-Trot 5k Fun Run will help BRA fund its technology program and other needs at the school.
