Programs For Troubled Teens and Families From South Dakota
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 South Dakota teens and their families may benefit from a nurturing program for troubled teens, like Asheville Academy that combines intensive therapeutic support and accredited academics. Asheville Academy was designed to provide support for girls ages 10-14 from South Dakota and across the United States that are struggling during their transition to 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.
At Asheville Academy, the focus is always on the family. Many South Dakota families believe their relationship with their daughter is broken beyond repair when they reach out to Asheville Academy. Once families leave Asheville Academy, they’ve re-established a healthy relationship with their daughter and learned how to stay connected through the next phase of her journey.

Asheville Academy Provides Help to South Dakota Families
Out of the many programs for troubled teens, Asheville Academy is one-of-a-kind. Unlike so many other programs for troubled teens, Asheville Academy provides a therapeutic boarding school experience to ensure that a girl can take all the time she needs to heal, without losing a beat academically. Asheville Academy integrates academics and therapy to help South Dakota girls get the most out of their experience.
A school setting plays a significant role in shaping young girls’ social lives and future goals. 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. Without appropriate support from teachers, South Dakota girls may feel like they are spiralling out of control in a traditional school setting.
With small class sizes and dedicated, compassionate professionals, Asheville Academy ensures that every student gets the attention she needs. Through our personalized approach, we have recognized that none of our students are troubled, but they may need more support in developing the skills they need to succeed. By recognizing their own strengths and needs, girls leave Asheville Academy prepare for a happier and healthier future. Asheville Academy helps South Dakota girls ages 10-14 take back control over their lives. To learn more about our beautiful North Carolina campus and the support we provide, call 800.264.8709!
