Programs For Troubled Teens and Families From Washington
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.
Asheville Academy for Girls, one of the leading programs for troubled teens, provides parents and daughters with the support and care required for the whole family to make it through this tumultuous period. Asheville Academy works specifically with girls ages 10-14 from all over the country, including Washington, on their journey through adolescence. We believe that our students are struggling with deeper emotional issues that can be resolved rather than labeling them as “troubled.”
Asheville Academy for Girls prioritizes keeping families involved in every step of their daughter’s therapeutic process. Many Washington families believe their relationship with their daughter is broken beyond repair when they reach out to Asheville Academy for Girls. Programs for troubled teens, like Asheville Academy for Girls, help families realize that it is possible to reconnect with their daughter, no matter how faint of a possibility it sounds like when their daughter first enrolls.

Asheville Academy for Girls Provides Help to Washington Families
Out of the many programs for troubled teens, Asheville Academy for Girls is one-of-a-kind. Unlike so many other programs for troubled teens, Asheville Academy for Girls 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. Through Asheville Academy for Girls, struggling Washington girls can receive a full education and therapy simultaneously.
A school setting plays a significant role in shaping young girls’ social lives and future goals. Unfortunately, many factors, like bullying, academic troubles, and low self-esteem can turn a school experience from positive to negative. Compounded with lack of attention from teachers, a troubled Washington girl can begin to lose touch and spiral out of control.
With small class sizes and dedicated, compassionate professionals, Asheville Academy ensures that every student gets the attention she needs. 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 helps Washington girls ages 10-14 take back control over their lives.
