4 Easy Steps to Admission

Step 1: Let’s Talk
Do you have questions about how we can help your child? How does our therapeutic approach work? Where are we located? Please call us toll free at 800-264-8709 or fill out a form HERE>>. Our admissions team does our very best to respond within minutes.

Step 2: Submit an Application
It is crucial for us to understand your child’s needs and how we can support them. Our application process will help determine the best fit for your child and the students already part of our community. Completion of this application doesn’t commit you to anything. Rather it helps to answer the ever important question, “Is this the right place for my child?” Once we have approved the application, we’ll schedule a tour.

Step 3: Let’s Set Up a Tour (Virtually)
We welcome families to meet our team, take a tour of campus, and chat with current students in the program. Currently, we’re doing virtual tours for families.

Step 4: Set Enrollment Date and Prepare for the Journey
Once you determine that Asheville Academy is the right fit, we’ll set an enrollment date. It can be a date one day away or a couple weeks away (we normally don’t recommend a date too far into the future). Before arrival, you’ll need to complete the Enrollment Paperwork. You can access the Enrollment Documents HERE. Now it’s time to get ready! We are here to help you prepare the transition.
