Who We Are

One Big Happy Family
Who We Are

Place Of Healing & Friendship

We are a team of caring therapists, teachers, and mentors dedicated to serving girls ages 10 – 14. Students arrive on our campus struggling and in need of guidance, and time and time again, we see them transform under our care as they gain new hope, greater understanding, and enhanced confidence and self-awareness.

Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing many families healed. Nothing compares to the moment when parents arrive on campus and their child comes running to embrace them. With tears of joy streaming down their face, they hold their child close, their hope restored and bond with their child stronger than ever.

These cherished moments are the reason we dedicate our lives to helping young girls.

Asheville Academy is a leading program for struggling girls because we believe in the healing power of a tranquil campus; we have a passionate, experienced staff; we offer clinical excellence that meets the needs of our students; and we have an exceptionally caring and nurturing community.

Years of Collective Experience Helping Girls

What We Hope Our Students Will Gain

from Their Time With Us

Repair Families

Family bonds are strengthened by providing an opportunity to reflect, opening the door to warm and open communication, and helping students set reasonable goals and expectations.

Rebuild Relationships

Girls build social skills, establish healthy boundaries with technology and social media, develop stronger communication skills, and envision success in relationships.

Restore Hope

Parents see a brighter future as their daughters learn how to overcome social and emotional challenges, set and reach goals, and create a world filled with friendship, laughter, and positive experiences.

Build Resilience

In our supportive, nurturing environment students learn to advocate for their needs, recover and overcome from setbacks, and build impulse control as they become more mature and resilient.

Create Success

Girls build their confidence through incremental progress, positive psychology which reminds them of their strengths, and activities that allow girls to challenge themselves in a safe environment.

Develop Thoughtfulness

Your daughter will become more aware of the thoughts and feelings of others, and develop genuine thankfulness through service work, community work, equine therapy, reflection, and goal-setting.
