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:
These activities include, but definitely aren’t limited to: sports, theatre, yoga, art, and community service work.
Theatre class is one of the most beloved aspects of the program. Drama classes have been proven to help improve SAT scores and raise self confidence.
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.
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.
