Current Research on Student Success

A Mindful Environment for Improved Outcomes

Research about the neuroplasticity of the brain shows that mindfulness can help improve attention span, cognitive abilities, and emotional control.  Additionally, mindfulness helps with anxiety and depression, which affects academic success. Asheville Academy utilizes mindfulness to help students improve presence, awareness, regulation, and compassion.
