Finding Each Girl’s Learning Style
Asheville Academy is one of the few residential treatment centers set in a boarding school environment on the east coast. Students often arrive at our school with a diagnosis that can impact learning. Sometimes these are singular issues for our students, sometimes these challenges are paired with behavioral or emotional issues as well. Some of our girls simply are not motivated or lack the study skills or confidence for sustained academic achievement. We know our girls are capable of academic success, they just haven’t tapped into it yet.
Common diagnoses found at Asheville Academy include:
- Executive Functioning Problems
- Non-Verbal Learning Disorder (NVLD)
- Auditory processing difficulties
We offer more than typical residential treatment centers
Unlike other residential treatment centers, we have a strong focus on academics–more like a therapeutic boarding school. This combination allows us to have the resources and staff required to give your daughter the focused care she needs, like identifying and assisting with differentiated learning styles.
Our approach offers an inclusion model with a sophisticated network of special education support–referred to on-campus as Learning Support or Learning Styles. We have multiple special education professionals who are specifically trained in many modalities of accommodation, such as inclusion or one-on-one support. By having small class sizes of 8 students per teacher, we can better accommodate each individual’s needs.
Asheville Academy, unlike other residential treatment centers, assesses all students academically at enrollment, then continuously reassesses them throughout their experience in order to identify areas of growth and challenge.
