Safe RTC Campus

Licensing is a Critical Component of Trust and Safety

We recognize that parents are trusting us with their child. We take this responsibility very seriously. From our secure and scenic campus to the people we hire and program we operate, every single aspect of what we do is 100% focused on providing the safest program with the highest level of clinical sophistication possible.

Asheville Academy holds high level licenses and accreditations.

This was a tremendous investment in our daughters future. You truly do what’s best for your children. Our experience was outstanding. She has become a very focused and well-rounded adult.

Licensed as a Residential Treatment Center

It is important to understand that Asheville Academy is a licensed and accredited Residential Treatment Center (RTC).  Families can be assured of a higher level of clinical quality and sophistication compared to therapeutic boarding schools and programs not licensed as an RTC.  As a licensed RTC, some families may also enjoy higher levels of insurance reimbursement compared to a therapeutic boarding school environment where only a portion of the tuition cost may be eligible for reimbursement. 


Licensing matters. Without it, how would you know a program has the staff, facilities, training necessary to provide a safe, effective program for your child?

Leading Accreditation for High Quality Care

In addition to our RTC status, we are accredited by the Commission of Accreditation Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).  Our CARF accreditation allows us to demonstrate to the outside world that Asheville Academy for Girls has met very stringent quality standards that are recognized internationally.

Without this accreditation and licensing, a family cannot be assured of the quality of hiring, the quality of facilities, and the care that is provided.  These licensing and accrediting bodies that we are associated with have strong standards and qualifications we must meet every single day. 

Finally, our academic institute is accredited by Advanced Ed, assuring that your child’s education will be held up to the highest possible standards while at Asheville Academy.  Advanced Ed accreditation ensures all credits girls have worked hard for follow them into transitional public, private day or board all over the country.

Our status as a licensed Residential Treatment Center is a significant reason to feel comfortable you are making the right choice with Asheville Academy for Girls.

Private, Therapeutic Campus in a Secure Setting

We have a beautiful 25 acre campus nestled in a scenic valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina. The only people on our campus every day are people who are students and staff involved with therapeutic programming.

Rigorous Interview Process

All staff undergo a rigorous interview process including a background check. Of course, we want people who are passionate and capable about helping others, but it is also important that families understand we spend a good amount of time ensuring we get the right people into our programs as team members.
