Charter School & Education
Education at Babcock Ranch
Situated on 18,000 acres, adjacent to an extensive wilderness preserve, Babcock Ranch features hiking and biking paths, greenways and lakes, all ready to serve as the ultimate experiential learning classroom for Babcock Neighborhood School (BNS). The Babcock Ranch community, focused on clean renewable energy strategies, including Florida Green Building Coalition certified buildings and 75 MW solar farm, offers a lesson in eco-stewardship for students. As students collaborate with business owners, learn about health and wellness, and gain a first hand understanding of the farm-to-table movement, they will discover that their contributions have value to the entire town of Babcock Ranch.
Babcock Neighborhood School
BNS offers a “place-based” environmentally focused “greenSTEAM” educational program that integrates science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics within a thoughtfully provided holistic learning environment.

The Babcock Ranch Foundation
The Babcock Ranch Foundation, Inc. was created in the summer of 2016 as a tax-exempt Florida non-profit to support initiatives and partnerships that enhance, enrich and create projects and activities for the benefit of the greater Babcock Ranch Community, Babcock Ranch Preserve, and the broader Southwest Florida region.
Passionate about the issues that most profoundly affect at-risk children, Foundation plans build on the rich heritage and many opportunities in abundance in our new town and at the Babcock Ranch Preserve. Through both partnerships and new opportunities, we hope to help educate and inspire the next generation of Floridians.
