98% of Parents Would Recommend Us
In our efforts to continually grow and improve, parents of current and former students were asked to rate Asheville Academy. We often survey parents in order to better understand areas of strength and improvement. Data represented here was gathered from parent surveys.
At Asheville Academy we measure student and family clinical growth as evidenced through daily living, emotional and behavioral progress during school, individual, family, and group therapy sessions, progress on the student’s Master Treatment Plan, and visits at home. In addition, we also measure growth through clinical questionnaires. Our students complete these during the first 30 days, and during the last 30 days. Assignments from the results of the Executive Skills Questionnaire and Resiliency Protective Factors are built into their phasework. At Asheville Academy we use the following.
- Youth Outcomes Questionnaire Self Report 2.0 – This looks at the areas of Interpersonal Distress, Somatic Symptoms, Interpersonal Relations, Social Problems, Behavioral Dysfunction, and Critical Incidents. Initially, this aids in identifying what areas need the most attention, which then become a part of their Master Treatment Plan.
- Executive Skills Questionnaire – Most of our students struggle with a number of Executive Functioning Skills; this identifies what areas need the most growth.
- Resiliency Protective Factors Checklist – We feel it’s equally important to focus on strengths, so this looks at areas of resiliency our students already have individually, within the family, and their community. Students get to choose which areas they want to strengthen during their time with us.
- UCLA Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Reaction Index – For those students with identified or suspected trauma, we complete these and gain insight into which symptoms need the most clinical attention.

What We Hope Our Students Will Gain From Their Time With Us
Restore Academic Confidence
During their time with us, students take part in a small, supportive classroom environment that encourages confidence and success in the classroom by catering to the individualized learning style of each student.
Girls build social skills, restore family relationships, establish healthy boundaries with technology and social media, develop stronger communication skills, and envision success in relationships.
Parents see a brighter future as their children learn how to overcome academic, social and emotional challenges, set and reach goals, and create a world filled with friendship, laughter, and positive experiences.
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.
Students build their confidence through incremental progress, positive psychology which reminds them of their strengths, and activities that allow students to challenge themselves in a safe environment.
Your child will become more aware of the thoughts and feelings of others, and develop genuine thankfulness through service work, community work, equine assisted therapy, reflection, and goal-setting.
