Engaging Activities For Student Development
At Asheville Academy, we have fun! We want girls to be able to act their age and enjoy their time with us. Students participate in a variety of extracurricular activities that help to:
- Boost self confidence
- Encourage students to think beyond themselves and consider the needs of others.
- Get students outside of their comfort zone
- Build teamwork skills
These activities include, but definitely aren’t limited to: sports, yoga, art, and community service work.
“Asheville Academy has helped my daughter learn the skills she needs to lead a productive, healthy, and happier life. We would like to thank you Asheville Academy for all the hard work and dedication.” – Summer and John, Parents
Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds
We believe eating well and being active help our students focus and have fun. Studies show stimulating the mind and body improves mood and outlook.
Thinking Beyond Ourselves
Service work is a cornerstone of how we help our students grow. It teaches students to think of others and be thankful for what they have.
There Is No “I” in TEAM
From the design of our cabins (small, family-like atmosphere of 8 students or less grouped by age and interests) to the activities we offer (swimming, hiking, trampoline parks to name a few), we purposely create opportunities for growth in our girls.
Throughout the week, students participate in activities both on and off campus that emphasize team building and sportsmanship. These activities help improve group dynamics and foster social growth amongst students.
Off campus team building trips vary depending on the season and weather. Filled with numerous watering holes, rivers, and scenic lookouts, the mountainous western region of North Carolina provides countless opportunities for hiking, climbing, adventure courses, biking, and environmental education. Being close to Asheville also provides many outlets such as art, museums, festivals, parks, and access to sports.
These activities are more than just fun distractions for students: they provide opportunities for the girls to build confidence, cultural understanding, leadership and education.
