A wide variety of programs meet the educational needs of the children through the Boys Ranch Independent School District (BRISD). Approved through the Texas Education Agency, the district includes an elementary school, a middle school and a high school. Basic academic courses meet state graduation requirements and provide a solid basis for future learning. Additionally, there are advanced courses, as well as comprehensive special education programs to teach children with learning disabilities in both resource and inclusion settings. A Gifted and Talented Program provides extra challenges and opportunities for student enrichment.
The district’s curriculum offerings are aligned to ensure that each student has the opportunity to participate in courses leading to success in college, the military, and employment. Participation in athletics, fine arts, or career and technology activities develops leadership, teamwork, and a solid work ethic.
Our students also participate in school sponsored extra-curricular activities and vocational training programs each day.
BRISD was established in 1941 through legislative action. It is considered a "special purpose" independent school district of Texas, funded in part through annual contributions from Cal Farley's and in part through state and federal education funding mechanisms.
