Focus on 10-14 year old girls

We focus on only girls 10-14 for a reason

Success in school and at home is the most important thing for a child to have a productive and fruitful adulthood. If your daughter is struggling in school, in social situations, or even at home a Therapeutic Boarding School may be the right choice for her.


The ages between 10-14 are some of the most influential in a girls life.  This is why success at this age is so important. We don’t want to offer a program for girls age 10-18 because 10-14 and 14-18 have very different challenges. Our focus is on 10-14 because we know that age group, and our specially designed program helps those girls to excel.

Students come from all over the country and span the ages of 10-14. They are often bright, promising young girls who have limitless potential but are currently derailed from a challenging situation. At Asheville Academy we remove all the obstacles they currently face and help them to refocus on what matters. 

Developmentally and emotionally girls this age are uniquely struggling with:

  • A desire to be more independent from family
  • How to have healthy interactions with peers
  • Negative peer influences and
  • Physical changes and body image issues
  • A disconnect from their emotional wellbeing
  • Academic challenges as they grow more abstract and learning differences become more pronounced.
  • Emotional and behavioral control
  • Developing a strong self-appraisal of their self-worth
  • We help you get your daughter back

Get Your Daughter Back

Our focus at Asheville Academy is always on returning your daughter back to her family. We involve the family in every step of our therapeutic process [LINK]. From the first week with us to your daughter’s transition home we help her to associate and appreciate the support and connection only her family can give her. The main reason parents love our program is because they have the chance to be a pillar in their daughter’s success. With parent workshops, family seminars, home visits, and weekly check-ins you are always one phone call from your daughter.

Whether your daughter’s obstacles are in the home, at school, or with her friends we can help support her and strengthen your family for the years to come. Contact us today to learn more about how our Residential Treatment Center may be the answer to all of your problems.
