Here at Asheville Academy, we take your daughter’s education as seriously as you do. We have integrated a supportive yet rigorous academic environment into our model of therapy. When your daughter enrolls in Asheville Academy, she’ll enter a school designed to build confidence, instill effective study habits, and allow her to experience academic success in a safe and supportive environment.
Thanks to our small class sizes and highly qualified, accredited teaching staff, we are able to ensure your daughter receives instruction that is tailored to her unique learning style as well as the individual attention she needs to thrive academically. Furthermore, we help to remove many of the stresses of traditional school environments by removing distractions and encouraging the sense of community our girls share.
We teach students the skills they’ll need to succeed in any academic environment – how to stay organized, take notes, write an essay, utilize MLA formatting, take a test, conduct research, effectively transition from subject to subject, and much more.
Caring and qualified teachers are at the heart of our school’s success. Our state-certified teachers lead small classes of eight girls on average and are personally invested in the success of each student under their care.
