Programs for Troubled Teens From Iowa
Growing up is hard. For many Iowa families, their daughter’s transition into a teenager can best be described as “walking on eggshells”. This transition from a happy child into a moody teen can happen in the blink of an eye. Waiting for her to grow out of this “phase” doesn’t always work, as these early years are significant in defining a girls’ adult personality and ensuring a healthy future. Programs for troubled teens can help families support their daughter through this difficult period.
Asheville Academy for Girls, a program for troubled teens, helps Iowa families guide their troubled daughter back on her way to success. We don’t believe your daughter is troubled, but we understand how the challenges she’s faced have been difficult without having developed the skills she needs to overcome them. As a therapeutic boarding school for girls ages 10-14, Asheville Academy helps young girls through the most difficult years of their lives.
At Asheville Academy for Girls, the family always comes first. Even when families believe that rebuilding their relationship is hopeless, Asheville Academy for Girls’ program for troubled teens reconnects parents and children and gives them a foundation for years of communication and support. Iowa parents work closely with our experienced professionals to help their daughter overcome challenges she faces during puberty.

Asheville Academy for Girls’ Program Helps Troubled Teens from Iowa
Unlike other programs for troubled teens, Asheville Academy for Girls is a therapeutic boarding school that provides individualized treatment for struggling teens. Many Iowa girls have a hard time in traditional school settings, with problems ranging from academic struggles to bullying and social rejection. To make matters worse, these issues can take a further toll on a girl’s academic performance, creating a vicious cycle. Whereas in traditional school settings, teachers are often overworked and underprepared, Asheville Academy for Girls has the resources to provide individualized attention to every student.
Asheville Academy for Girls’ accredited academic program is consistent with local curriculum to guarantee that students are earning credit and keeping up with their peers. Out of the many programs for troubled teens, only Asheville Academy for Girls ensures that a child is never far removed from real life during their healing experience. We reject the idea of young girls being troubled and follow an approach that looks at underlying issues contributing to their unhealthy coping mechanisms.
