Programs For Troubled Teens and Families From New York
Puberty isn’t pleasant for anyone, but for some people the inner turmoil it causes can ruin relationships, pull families apart, and cause severe distress for all involved. While most teenagers face similar struggles, some are more resilient than others and do not experience the same level of distress.
During this difficult period, many New York teens and their families may benefit from a nurturing program for troubled teens, like Asheville Academy for Girls that combines intensive therapeutic support and accredited academics. Asheville Academy works specifically with girls ages 10-14 from all over the country, including New York, on their journey through adolescence. Rather than being “troubled,” we believe that our students are struggling with a variety of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges that can be overcome by learning appropriate coping mechanisms.
The foundation of Asheville Academy’s program is rebuilding family relationships. Many New York families believe their relationship with their daughter is broken beyond repair when they reach out to Asheville Academy for Girls. Once families leave Asheville Academy for Girls, they’ve re-established a healthy relationship with their daughter and learned how to stay connected through the next phase of her journey.

School is one of the key environments for children. Many of life’s greatest lessons are learned in the hallways. Sometimes, however, things do not go according to plan. Bullying, academic troubles, low self-esteem – these factors are among the many that can turn the school experience from positive to negative. Many of these negative experiences that New York girls face fly under the radar in traditional school environments.

Our philosophy is based on the idea that your daughter isn’t troubled, but that she needs more support in developing the skills she needs to succeed.
