Welcome to Asheville Academy, a residential boarding school exclusively for young girls ages 10 – 14. Asheville Academy is more than a therapeutic boarding school because we have more staff per student and a campus specifically designed and exclusively used as a therapeutic setting.
We are recognized as a leader due our school environment led by certified teachers, equine and animal therapy right on campus, and our top-notch accreditations and licenses.
Nestled on an expansive, private 25 acre campus in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina, Asheville Academy is exclusively designed to improve behaviors, coping skills, and family relationships for girls ages 10 – 14 years old.
We are the only state licensed and CARF accredited boarding school focusing exclusively on girls age 10 – 14 in the state of North Carolina. Our successful completion of the credentialing process demonstrates the clinical excellence, staffing expertise, and quality of care offered at Asheville Academy is greater than a typical therapeutic boarding school.
The transition from childhood to young adulthood is a difficult, emotional time for all girls. We focus specifically on 10 – 14 year olds at our Therapeutic Boarding School because it allows us to provide a safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate clinical and social setting.
The young girls who come to us are failing to reach their potential and often struggling with sadness, loss, anger or self-doubt. They are lashing out or shutting down to hide their pain and fear.
The family is often hurting, too. Parents and siblings bear the brunt of her fear and self-doubt. Family members often describe “walking on glass,” waiting for the next explosion.
We understand the challenges young girls face, and our clinical approach and highly qualified staff can help get your daughter back. By building your daughter’s confidence, getting to the root of her hurt or anger, and improving her coping skills, she will see tremendous progress at Asheville Academy. By involving the family back home every step of the way, we can help repair the family, too.
“Asheville Academy is the first place to recognize and effectively address the issues our daughter has been struggling with for years. She has made more progress in 6 months then she has anywhere else. As a result she is more confident and secure in herself.
Asheville Academy provides an incredibly supportive environment in which to grow and develop.”
We recognize that this can be a challenging time for many families. We are parents, too, and we understand the desire to have your young daughter be happy and healthy. We are here to help you determine the right path for your young girl and your family.
At Asheville Academy we strive to be a therapeutic boarding school and more! The goal is to help families get their daughters back and to restore the health and happiness of all of the students. Call us today at 800-264-8709 to learn more about how Asheville Academy can help.
