Located in North Carolina, Asheville Academy is one of the nation’s leading therapeutic boarding schools for girls. We are a close-knit supportive community designed to help girls ages 10-14 overcome their challenges and become the best version of themselves. We restore hope and teach the skills that girls will need to succeed in life.
If you’re worried that negative patterns could potentially lead to more destructive behaviors with age, you’re not alone. The best thing you can do as a parent is recognize these behavior patterns and correct them while your daughter is still in her preteen or early teen years.
When your daughter enters Asheville Academy, she’ll live in a safe environment that combines accredited academics, a nurturing approach to therapy and a deep dedication to community. She’ll develop the confidence and resilience needed to face life’s challenges, rebuild strained relationships with friends and family, communicate clearly, and prepare for a smooth transition back home.
At Asheville Academy, our individualized therapeutic approach is designed to meet your child’s specific needs. Our clinical team utilizes a variety of therapeutic approaches depending on each child’s therapeutic needs and process. The therapist to student ratio at Asheville Academy is 8 students for every 1 therapist.
Each of our therapists have received a high level of training and continue to seek additional training in their selected areas of expertise each year. Therapists are trained in a variety of therapeutic techniques such as neurofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).
Your child’s struggles affect your entire family, and the therapeutic process should reflect that. Our therapeutic family programming runs parallel to the healing and growth taking place on campus. Family therapy at our therapeutic boarding school for girls is designed to include families from the start with the main goal of reconnecting you with your child in a healthy and meaningful way.
Throughout the program, your child will gain the confidence and skills that prepare them to transition back home. Your family will need help in this transition, too. Because of this, we offer transition services to families that are working toward graduation from the program. These services will help address and reduce the anxiety that families can feel during the transition process. We will work with your family to put a structure in place that will make this transition as smooth as possible for your family system.
