ASHEVILLE ACADEMY FOR GIRLS IS ONE OF THE LEADING THERAPEUTIC BOARDING SCHOOLS
One of the biggest concerns parents have when finding a therapeutic program for their child is not wanting to compromise their school attendance. Especially if your daughter is already struggling with school refusal and poor academic performance, it is hard to make the decision to seek help. Fortunately, therapeutic boarding schools combine elements of residential treatment centers and traditional boarding schools help students learn new to manage their mental health struggles. With around the clock support, students that attend therapeutic boarding schools are able to make improvements more quickly than they would in outpatient therapy sessions while staying on track academically.
As students who attend therapeutic boarding schools often require a lower level of care than those who may benefit from hospitalization, these schools also offer a variety of recreation activities both on and off-campus to help students grow in other areas. Nestled in the mountains of North Carolina, the Asheville Academy campus boasts almost one hundred acres of hiking trails, separate academic buildings, and a small, private lake, which helps students become motivated to learn experientially.
