Asheville Academy for Girls is an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Alaska youth focused on helping adolescents find lasting change. Asheville Academy provides a therapeutic environment for girls ages 10-14 in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina. We help families from all over the United States and around the globe, including Alaska.
As one of the top therapeutic boarding schools for Alaska girls, Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach for struggling girls dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal. Through their accredited academics, use of animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff, Asheville Academy helps young girls from Alaska and their families find success.
When families from Alaska come to Asheville Academy, they often say their family dynamic feels broken, leaving them and their daughters with feelings of failure, low self-respect, or family distort. Alaska families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic through our family approach which includes family seminars and family therapy.
We help families from across the United States, even though Asheville Academy is not located in Alaska. Sometimes, the girls’ healing process is easier when they are distanced from their environment. During their time at Asheville Academy, students are removed from distractions and are able to focus on achieving lasting change.
