Programs For Troubled Teens and Families From Virginia
While no one looks back on early puberty fondly, in some cases, the sudden intense physical and emotional changes that occur during this period can pull families apart, ruin relationships, 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.
Programs for troubled teens, like Asheville Academy for Girls offer young girls from Virginia and their families the support they may need to make it through this difficult period. Specifically targeted at ages 10-14, Asheville Academy for Girls guides troubled Virginia girls on their journey through adolescence into young adulthood. 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. A lot of Virginia families have reached a breaking point when they reach out to Asheville Academy for Girls and worry that re-establishing their relationship with their daughter is hopeless. By the time families leave Asheville Academy for Girls, they’ve found ways to reconnect with their daughter by challenging that belief.

Asheville Academy for Girls Provides Help to Virginia Families
Asheville Academy for Girls takes a different, more personalized approach to helping troubled teens in our program. Asheville Academy for Girls is a therapeutic boarding school that helps girls stay on track academically while they learn more about themselves. Asheville Academy for Girls integrates academics and therapy to help Virginia girls get the most out of their experience.
Young girls learn more than just class curriculum in a school environment. However, a school environment can also be full of negative experiences, like bullying, academic troubles, and low self-esteem, for many young girls. Without appropriate support from teachers, Virginia girls may feel like they are spiralling out of control in a traditional school setting.
At Asheville Academy for Girls, small classes and a kind, professional staff guarantee that no girl goes without the attention she deserves. We reject the idea that our students are “troubled” and believe that with the right support and healthier coping mechanisms, students can be successful. Our unique approach helps young girls feel better prepared for a happier and healthier future. Asheville Academy for Girls guides struggling 10 to 14-year-old girls from Virginia on their path back to success. For more information, please call 800.264.8709!
